Founded by twenty-seven visionary women, Kappa Phi Gamma Sorority, Inc. was established on November 8th, 1998, as the Nation’s first ever South Asian Interest-Based Sorority. Although Kappa Phi Gamma was founded as a South Asian interest sorority, we expand the warmth of our Sisterhood to any and all motivated women, willing to make a difference in their community and to uphold the eight principles that the sisterhood is based upon. To date, we are located at 20 undergraduate universities and have over 850 members.
Message from the Chapter President
Hi! My name is Advika and I am the current charter president of Upsilon Charter of Kappa Phi Gamma Sorority, Inc. here at the University of Connecticut. KPhiG has given me a place to grow as an individual as well as form lifelong bonds with many sisters in the organization. Since joining the organization, I have been able to build better professional skills and balance both academia and social connections. I was able to accomplish these things because of my supportive sisters, and am able to grow alongside of them as well! I have met people that I consider a second family, and have been able to become the best version of myself alongside women with similar values. I hope you can take a minute to check out our Instagram account and website to get a better idea of what being a sister is like!
President: Advika Thandoni
