“The pace at which we’ve gone from an interest group to now an official chapter in roughly 11 months has been unbelievable,” says Chapter President Gilbert Cai. “Our line grew much closer as we worked together toward creating a new community on campus: a brotherhood. We were strangers not long ago, but now I am proud to call each and every one of the individuals in my line my brother. I look forward to seeing how this chapter will contribute to furthering the values and mission of Lambda Phi Epsilon.”
Brothers Andrew Vu (Spring 2018) and Quang Bui (Spring 2018) of UMBC Chapter supervised their intake process as New Member Educators. “Brotherhood is a funny thing. I never thought I would grow to love these guys as much as I do now,” says New Member Educator Andrew Vu. “Quang and I agree that the Villanova Charter Class is a solid group of brothers and a very strong addition to our brotherhood. We’re proud of the dedication, responsibility, and true grit shown by these young men. I am extremely proud and hope everyone will join us in welcoming these men to our brotherhood.”
“It is with great pleasure and honor to share the news of the latest successful expansion since 2021,” says Director of Expansion Winston Lee. “This achievement not only represents the resilience of our organization, but also serves as a testament to the commitment and perseverance of providing a space for students to join Lambda Phi Epsilon. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, this new chapter has demonstrated the values of brotherhood, leadership, and community service—the core values of our fraternity. I’m confident that this new chapter will continue to thrive and make a positive impact on its members and their respective communities.”
