The Ohio State University Associate Chapter was established on April 2, 2020 and guided by New Member Educators Zac Antonius (Alpha Gamma Chapter, Spring 2016) and Jimmy Luu (Alpha Psi Chapter, Fall 2015). “This entire process has been a great learning experience for not only these new Brothers but also for all of the mentors involved in this process,” says Antonius. “It has been a joy seeing this group go from an Interest Group to a new chapter of Lambda Phi Epsilon and I am proud to have been included in this journey.”
Kenny Vo, the chapter’s newly elected president, delighted in the opportunity to bring Lambda Phi Epsilon to his university. “We intend to actively provide engaging programming with the organizations on campus,” says Vo. “We have high hopes of bridging communities and forming relationships with students from across the APIDA diaspora and alongside minority groups on campus.”

“Our chapter’s goal is to create a common ground for creating leaders on campus,” says chapter president Hoangnha Vo. “We aim to provide all brothers the skills they need to be successful in their own personal lives.”
