WHY LAMBDA PHI EPSILON?

Lambda Phi Epsilon is an organization that will challenge every aspect of your college life. Not only will you learn how to become a leader, you will be empowered to make a positive impact in your community and in your life after college. You will create bonds that will last a lifetime and meet people who will leave a lasting impression. Lambda life extends far beyond the reach of school. With chapters across the country and Canada, you will have a chance to network with brothers from all over, bringing with it many opportunities, both during your time as an active and when you become an alumnus. Granted, the road to becoming a Lambda is not easy, but the rewards are well worth it.

By becoming a brother you will end up with some of the best friends you will ever make and be able to laugh over some of the most memorable stories. Lambdas have fun…and lots of it. We are known for our social gatherings, but being a Lambda also carries with it a strong sense of pride and a reputation for being a well-rounded individual. It takes a certain type of man to become a Lambda, someone who wants to become a leader among men.

WHAT IS RUSH?

Rush is a period of time during the first weeks of the semester when the brothers of Lambda Phi Epsilon host various events in order to find new potential members. During this time, the brothers have a chance to meet and learn more about you. There are no obligations during rush and all events are free. It is encouraged that you come out to enjoy yourself at the rush events even if you are not interested in joining.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER RUSH?

After the rush period, the brothers of Lambda Phi Epsilon will extend you a bid, an official invitation to join a fraternity/sorority, if the brothers feel that you are a good candidate for the fraternity. There is no obligation to accept the bid. However, should you choose to accept the bid, you will begin the pledging process which is designed to teach you the history, culture, and values of Lambda Phi Epsilon. After completing this process, you will be initiated and become a brother of Lambda Phi Epsilon.

WHAT TYPE OF PERSON ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?

The diversity of the fraternity is due to the wide set of skills, talents, and passions of its members. Our motto, “To Be Leaders Among Men”, applies to each and every brother of the fraternity. The fraternity seeks individuals who are leaders among the crowd that will ultimately become the new faces of Lambda Phi Epsilon.

DO I HAVE TO BE ASIAN TO JOIN?

While Lambda Phi Epsilon is an Asian-American interest fraternity, there are many brothers that are not of Asian descent. New potential members are sought based on character and interest in Asian culture/awareness.
