  • Who Are We?

    Lambda Phi Epsilon was first established here at UCLA in 1981. Since then, we have expanded across the country to become the first and only nationally recognized Asian interest fraternity. With 50 chapters, our fraternity has a strong presence throughout the United States and Canada. And while the brothers are diverse in culture and creed, we all share our bond in promoting Asian awareness, teaching leadership skills, maintaining our traditions, and exemplifying brotherhood.

    Our Mission

    We, the members of Lambda Phi Epsilon National Fraternity, strive to promote Asian-American awareness by helping philanthropic causes, educating the community, and preserving Asian-American culture.

    Since its inception, Lambda Phi Epsilon has maintained the highest standards of Academic Performance, Social Experience, Community Service, and most importantly, Brotherhood among its members.

    Eternal Brotherhood

    Why join Lambda Phi Epsilon when there are numerous other Asian organizations on campus? By joining, you will enter a brotherhood that is rich in tradition and strong in its bonds. The brotherhood that a fraternity offers forms friendships that last a lifetime. Brothers of both Asian and non-Asian descent have said that the reason they rushed Lambda Phi Epsilon was because they could see and feel the closeness of brotherhood that other fraternities did not portray, and wanted to play a part in it as well.

Our History

On February 25, 1981, Mr. Craig Ishigo and a group of eighteen dedicated men founded Lambda Phi Epsilon here at UCLA. Dissatisfied with the state of the Asian-Greek system, the founders led the way by inspiring Brotherhood within Lambda Phi Epsilon, which is now the largest Asian-American interest fraternity in the country.

Since its founding, Lambda Phi Epsilon has spread like wildfire to schools around the nation. Within ten years, chapters were established at all of the UC's and most of the CSU campuses. By 1990, Lambda Phi Epsilon was officially recognized as a national organization by the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) and since then, the fraternity has continued to grow and inspire the same ideals that all the brothers from around the country live by.

And Our Legacy

The encompassing motto of our fraternity is "To Be Leaders Among Men." We not only seek to bring together a diverse group of men who share interests, concerns, backgrounds and cultures, but those who show the confidence of a leader.

Grounded on the principles of wisdom, honor, and courage, our actives continue to teach young men the principles of leadership and strong moral character. Our alumni provide a way in which brothers may apply these beliefs and become true leaders of society. It is that unique life-long bond that makes Lambda Phi Epsilon the most respected and sought-after organization of its kind.

Philanthropy

In 1996, Evan Chen, a brother from Stanford University, was diagnosed with leukemia. All of the chapters of Lambda Phi Epsilon worked together to find a compatible match for a bone marrow transfusion, a procedure that is possibly life-saving. Eventually, through the efforts of the fraternity, family, and friends, a match was found, but Evan unfortunately passed away before the surgery could be performed.

A3M Foundation

Through these circumstances, Lambda Phi Epsilon now works with the Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches (A3M) foundation for our national philanthropy. We continuously strive to help promote awareness for leukemia and other blood-related disorders as well as encouraging those of Asian descent to register for the bone marrow registry.

Asians only make up a very small minority of registered possible bone marrow donors. As a result, those patients in need of a transplant simply cannot find one, as finding a match is highly selective in ethnic descent. We believe it is our duty to spread information on this live-saving action and encourage everyone to register. More information can be found at the A3M website.

Our chapters holds bone marrow registry drives on campus several times annually and urges the UCLA student body to register and possibly save a life.

  • What is Rush?

    Rush is the time when greek organizations hold events in order to find potential new members, selected from a pool of rushees. Lambda Phi Epsilon is no exception. Everyone is invited to attend our events, which have been catered to you, the rushee, so that you are well informed about our brotherhood if you do receive a bid.

    What Is A Bid?

    A bid is an invitation to enter the pledge process and continue on the path of becoming a brother. Bids are given at the end of rush to rushees who the brothers feel would be a good fit to our fraternity. You are not obligated to accept a bid if given one; rush is completely non-committal.

    Should I Attend All Events?

    You are definitely encouraged to attend all rush events from beginning to end. Every event is designed with the rushee in mind. We will be there to answer any questions that you may have about the fraternity or the chapters. It is an opportunity for you to get to know the brothers better, and vice versa. Ask questions and just be yourself.

    What Type Of Person Are You Looking For?

    The diversity of our fraternity is due to the individual personalities that make up the house. However, our motto, "To Be Leaders Among Men", applies to each and every brother. We are looking for the leaders among the crowd, who will ultimately become the faces of our fraternity.

  • Am I Required To Pledge If I Attend Rush?

    No. Rush is simply an opportunity for you to introduce yourself and meet the brothers. So have fun, enjoy yourself, and allow us to show you what our brotherhood is about.

    Do I Have To Pay?

    No, all rush events are free. All costs are funded by Lambda Phi Epsilon. Rides to all events are provided as well.

    Do I Have To Be Asian To Join?

    No. There are many brothers in all different chapters of Lambda Phi Epsilon who are not Asian. Lambda Phi Epsilon stresses that it is an Asian INTEREST fraternity, which means that anyone who is interested in our goals, both Asian and non-Asian, are encouraged to join. If you feel that you have a strong understanding or wish to learn more about Asian awareness, Lambda Phi Epsilon can serve your purposes.

    Will Joining A Fraternity Impact My Schooling?

    You should definitely care about what you are about to join, but at the same time, do not forget why are at school. Be sure to find the right balance to have a rewarding college life both socially and academically. Remember, even the brothers are students first and foremost.

    Older brothers will be able to help you and offer you invaluable advice in getting through school. We also have test and textbook banks that will prepare you for your upcoming examinations. Fully utilizing these unique resources that Lambdas have to offer will definitely benefit your education at UCLA.

  • Thank you for coming out to our 2012 Lil Sis Class Rush!

  • Lambda Lil Sisses

    The Lambda Lil Sis program is designed to provide close-knit bonds of friendship to a select group of girls. Whether you're looking for a group of friends to go clubbing, to study, or just to hang out, Lambda Lil Sis gives you the opportunity to meet cool people, make lifelong friendships, and make the most out of your college experience. Our goal is not only for you to get to know us, but to bond with your fellow Lambda Lil Sisses as well, and come to consider them as your sisters.


    Why Lambda Lil Sis?

    As the First, Largest, and Only Nationally recognized Asian Interest Fraternity, you will get to enjoy many benefits as a Lambda Lil Sis such as traveling to many different Lambda chapters for various events, receiving hospitality and respect from other Lil Sisses and Brothers nationwide, greatly expanding your social network, and of course, joining us for our biggest event of the year, Convention!

    Through the Lambda Lil Sis program, you will build and maintain a meaningful relationship that will last throughout college, be exposed to an alternative social group and a family for support, and escape the cliques through many opportunities to attend off-campus events. Each Lil Sis will be paired up with a Big Bro, who will be their caretaker, mentor, brother and friend. For those who may have never had a sister or brother, this program was developed to help build those bonds of trust and family.

    Provided by CUNY Baruch, Alpha Nu chapters

  • What is ΛΦΕ Convention?

    With 50 chapters and international status, Lambda Phi Epsilon operates beyond the scope of individually run school organizations. Along with the existence of a National board comes the annual gathering of Lambdas - Convention. Every Memorial Day weekend, hundreds of brothers arrive from around the country to a predetermined location for the National general meeting. Convention is a time for business. Elections are held for the following year's National board and for potential new active chapters. Pertinent issues are discussed and resolutions are set. Many new acquaintances are made, and many others are renewed.

    However, it is not solely about serious matters. It is enthralling to meet new brothers from practically everywhere who share a common bond. A brotherhood showcase is held where chapters brothers and Lil Sisses compete with step routines. And of course, no gathering is complete without a club party. Our close relationship with our fellow international sister sorority, alpha Kappa Delta Phi, ensures that there will never be a lack of partying at our events.

    Convention is without question the most anticipated event of Lambda Phi Epsilon. For one weekend, brothers meet because of one unifying reason - their dedication to the fraternity. With this common ground, business is taken care of, and crazy nights are had.
