Delta Phi Lambda

The Rho Chapter of Delta Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc. was charted at the University of Connecticut on April 10, 2016. Seven ladies: Bernice Sit, Kaitlyn McCarthy, Victoria Moun, Janet Zheng, Tiffany Hsu, Angela Villella, and Sylvia Wang came together with the help of Donna Chow, who transferred from the Alpha Chapter at the University of Georgia, to charter DPhiL on campus. Delta Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc. is an Asian inclusive, not Asian exclusive, sorority that advocates for Asian awareness, empowers women leaders, and forges Everlasting Sisterhood. We have over 1,700 Initiated Members, 23 Collegiate Chapters, and 5 Alumnae Chapters across the nation.

Message from the Chapter President

Hi! My name is Sherry Weng, Chapter President of the Rho Chapter of Delta Phi Lambda and I am currently a senior double majoring in Statistics and Sociology. I learned about DPhiL in my first year at UConn through a good friend who was an active sister. I had never imagined that I would join a sorority but after the sisters had welcomed me with open arms during recruitment, I found myself wanting to be surrounded by these amazing women.I grew up in Milford, MA where it was predominately white with a handful of Asians, and felt that there was no one to relate to in terms of my background and culture. The sisters of DPhiL were so welcoming and I instantly felt a connection. Not only did I create strong, everlasting bonds, I learned to embrace my Asian culture and be proud of it. I became a member in the spring semester of my freshman year and since then I have learned how to become a better leader, advocate, and overall well-rounded person.
