Hi and welcome to the Alpha Mu Chapter of Omega Phi Alpha at Boston University! OPhiA is BU’s only community service sorority, and we are founded on the principles of friendship, leadership, and service.
My name is Amanda McFarland and I am a senior in Sargent College studying Health Science with minors in French and African Studies. I have been a member of OPhiA since my freshman year, and formerly served as the Co-Community Service Director. When I came to BU, I wasn’t sure how I was going to find my community at such a giant university. Finding OPhiA completely changed my BU experience, and this chapter has given me a sisterhood for life. Each and every member of OPhiA brings an incredible energy and dedication to service that empowers everyone around them.
Even though our sisters have different backgrounds,majors, and passions, we are all united by a love of service to our local community, BU community, and global community. Whether we are sorting clothing, carrying groceries, or fundraising for global causes, our sisters always seek to give back to the community that gives so much to us. Our community partners in Boston allow us to get to know the city we call home on a much deeper level. I am so proud and honored to be the president of Alpha Mu chapter this year, and I can’t wait to see what this year will bring!
