Lambda Delta Psi was founded on May 1st, 2009, at the University of Oklahoma by four ladies: Diane Cho, Mai Le, Samantha Lee, and Stacie Nguyen. These ladies had a vision to step out of the stereotype and establish a sorority solely based on what they believed was sisterhood. They felt as if the views on sisterhood and a sorority needed to be changed. So with that vision and one common goal in mind, they set out to redefine sisterhood. Once these ladies began to take action, they started under the organization name, R.E.A.L., which stood for Redefined Elegant Asian Ladies, in the spring of 2009. Through much devoted time and effort, they successfully turned their vision into reality and beyond. These ladies have managed to create their own unique identity within the large Greek community. With focus on sisterhood, community service, and academic excellence, Lambda Delta Psi has sprouted from the roots to blossom into the sorority that it is today.
The Gamma Beta Fraternity was created in the Spring of 2000 at the University of Texas at Austin. The original nine founders intended to incorporate the culture of the Asian community and the values and morals of a family to create an unparalleled brotherhood. The fraternity is dedicated to the betterment of men through morality, discipline, responsibility, unity, and academics. Gamma Beta is currently the fastest growing Asian-Interest Fraternity in the southwest region. Although Gamma Beta is an Asian-Interest Fraternity, we do not discriminate. Men of any color, creed, ethnicity, or religious background are welcome to our fraternity.
The official purpose of Lambda Delta Psi is to cultivate a sisterhood of distinguished women through friendship and service while maintaining high morals and academic standards. We seek to always exemplify characteristics such as temperance, grace, and integrity and to educate and guide other young women in becoming eloquent ladies of society.
Delta Associate Chapter History
In the Spring of 2012, six ladies, Karina Chavez, Jennifer Hoang, Alina Keohavong, Jasmine Kim, Jenny Nguyen, and Vi Nguyen, were brought together with a common goal. They wanted a sisterhood that was unlike any other on the campus of Texas Tech. They were first established under the organization, Women of Asian Heritage (W.O.A.H.). Through hard work and determination, these ladies were able to overcome challenges and establish Lambda Delta Psi on the TTU campus.
