Welcome

ORIENTATION 2021: “THREADS OF LIFE”

Chapter Leadership,

 

Just as threads are interwoven and interconnected, we comprise the individual threads of Lambda Phi Epsilon—leaders across different cultures, expertise, professions, and interests—that weave together one collective tapestry of authentic expression. When brothers wear the embroidered letters “Lambda Phi Epsilon” on their chest, they add to a deeply threaded legacy that is 40 years in the making.
