Delta Phi Lambda (Greek: ΔΦΛ, also known as DPhiL and DFL) is an Asian-interest sorority that expands from the Southeast to the Midwest regions of the United States. It was founded by Anh Ngoc Nguyen and six other women at the University of Georgia on December 5, 1998.[1][2]

Delta Phi Lambda is also a member of the National APIA Panhellenic Association (NAPA).[3]

History

With the vision of creating a home away from home and spreading Asian awareness, Anh Ngoc Nguyen, Theresa Sung, Sarah Chong Mi Cho, Carmela De Guzman, Yvonne Minh Ta, Linh Khanh Do, and Rebecca Kim Stephenson came together to establish a unique foundation of Everlasting Sisterhood. Soon these seven women became the founding mothers of Delta Phi Lambda on December 5, 1998 at the University of Georgia.

Preamble & Tokens

Preamble

We, the sisters of Delta Phi Lambda, pledge to wholly dedicate our mind, body, and spirit to the completion of our mission. We will seek to improve the image of the Asian American. We will achieve this by acknowledging and spreading our unique Asian heritage. The bond between the sisters will set an example for others in the Asian community. We will set this example by displaying the virtues of loyalty, honesty, respect, dedication, integrity, discipline, and academic excellence. We hold these virtues to be true and will execute them in every venture the sorority will undertake. Delta Phi Lambda will remain strong through unity, and our legacy will live on through the works of the sisters.[4]
