Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority Inc. was established on March 9, 1995 at Binghamton University. Due to its interesting and influential impact it had on others, Kappa Phi Lambda has spread to many other Universities in these past years. Wendy Chan, an Alpha Delta sister from Binghamtom transferred to the State University at Stony Brook. Undeniably, there is a huge population of Asian Americans at Stony Brook. Kappa Phi Lambda gave Wendy an initiative to unite the community and promote Asian Awareness. With much struggle and time, Wendy was able to accumulate girls that had the same interest and goals. During the Winter ’98 session, bids were given to a pledge class of seven consisting of Melissa Chan, Onah Cho, Donna Tsang, Sheila Hsu, Winnie Ng, Kelly Ngai and Anna Yiu. After weeks of hard work through thick and thin, seven women survived the crucial process with Wendy as the Pledge Educator. On February 28, 1998 the Alpha Chapter initiated the Charter Pledge class. Thus, Melissa Chan, Onah Cho, Donna Tsang, Sheila Hsu, Winnie Ng, Kelly Ngai and Anna Yiu are the Charter Sister of the Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority at the University at Stony Brook. Their motto was seven equal one .
As charters of a new colony, much had to be done. With help from Wendy, those eight sisters built a foundation in Stony Brook promoting cultural awareness to the community and to women amidst the multiculturalism. As Charters, they stand strong and solid. As leaders and models to others, they stand humbly to continue the legacy of Kappa Phi Lambda. Providing the community with services, making one voice for the Asian community, holding Philanthropy fundraisers for needy organizations throughout the world. As individuals, we are here to promote cultural diversity and to educate each other, the society and the world about Pan-Asian culture. The Charters have learned much from pledging but the learning has only begun and will be ongoing. Pledging has not only made us more aware of the hardships of being a minority but also gave us the strength to do something about it. We are united today to make a difference in the world we live for tomorrow. It may seem endless but the results will be forever. The dedication that the colony had was overwhelming and everlasting. It teaches us all, that hard work pays off in the end. All good things have to be earned. thus, we all stand tall and honored to be Sisters of Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority, Incorporated.
