Fraternity alumni from UC Santa Cruz, Stanford, UT Austin, DePaul, Purdue, Cornell, UMass, and Syracuse mentored the Charter Group throughout their chartering process. “It has been an honor and privilege to have been given the opportunity to lend my experience to the newest generation of Lambda Men. Seeing these nine outstanding men grow and develop during the chartering process has shown me that the future of Lambda Phi Epsilon burns brighter than ever before,” says New Member Educator Phi Nguyen.
According to Charter Group President Jacky Sirichantho, “When we first came together as a group, I think we all had different reasons for wanting to join and charter the fraternity. Those reasons ranged from professional and to social ones, too. However now that we’re brothers who have gone through hardships together, we can all confidently say we’re doing this for each other now.”
Chartered on April 8th, the University of Connecticut Associate Chapter is the newest addition to join the Fraternity’s Northeast Region. “Each individual is exceptional and I have no doubt they will be able to carry on the Lambda legacy. I look forward to seeing what their future upholds,” says Northeast Governor Peter Chung.

There’s immense opportunity to bolster the Asian American community in Connecticut, and we’re looking forward to seeing what these men will accomplish.”
