HISTORY

Seven women established the Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc. at Binghamton University on March 9, 1995 with a single vision of sisterhood, service, and cultural diversity. The sorority was conceived to provide a culturally and educationally inspiring grounding for Asian American women, laying the cornerstones of what was to become a revolutionary and unprecedented organization. This culturally based sorority would unite women of differing heritages and encourage use of their strong voices and thought. This sorority is open to women of all nationalities and backgrounds who want to learn about, actively speak for, and represent Pan-Asian culture. These first sisters of Kappa Phi Lambda also extended their hands to the community through charitable works of both service-oriented and philanthropic natures. Kappa Phi Lambda formed to provide the campus, and, on a large scale, the society with yet another option for learning and another outlet for activity. Several years ago, seven beautiful women lit the fire that is Kappa Phi Lambda and watched it grow. That fire now burns brightly within each of its present sisters, carrying with it all of our individual aspects, and it will continue to burn within the sisters to come.
