Theta Tau CHapter


We began as Phi Alpha Sigma, and were colonized as the Theta Tau Chapter of Alpha Phi in 1995. Our original house was located on 15th Street in Troy, NY, but we are now located at 1 Forsyth Drive off of Sunset Terrace. Up by East Athletic Campus Village, our house was transformed into a modern, unique home that accommodates 44 sisters. Each common area is themed, and each sister has her own room! With over 90 tight knit Alpha Phi sisters, life in Troy is a home away from home.

Mission Statement: Though we think as individuals, we stand together.
