The women of Alpha Epsilon Phi represent a sisterhood that fosters friendship, high moral character, and continuous development, both personally and intellectually. We are a sisterhood that is dedicated to their community and service work, to unconditional friendship, and to oneself. AEPhi is built upon principles of inclusion set forth by its Jewish founders in 1909. Alpha Epsilon Phi welcomes all collegiate women, regardless of background, to experience the everlasting benefits and sisterhood that the sorority has to offer.
In 2006, a new student organization was formed at Texas A&M called Aggie Jewish Women (AJW) with the intent of establishing the first-ever Jewish sorority on the campus. In its first 3 years, AJW blossomed, and by 2010, the group was able to petition the Collegiate Panhellenic Council (CPC) for membership in order to provide a place for Jewish girls within Greek Life at Texas A&M. That spring, AJW was accepted by the CPC as an Associate Member, and AJW was re-named Zeta Beta Sigma, or ZBΣ. In the spring of 2014, Zeta Beta Sigma received approval from the CPC to seek National recognition. In March of 2015, CPC voted unanimously to have Alpha Epsilon Phi join the Texas A&M Community. After two years as a colony, in November of 2017, we received our National Charter and became the Beta Xi chapter of Alpha Epsilon Phi.
