Lambda Phi Epsilon was founded on February 25, 1981, by principal founder Master Craig Ishigo and a group of eighteen other dedicated men on the campus of the University of California of Los Angeles. Noting that Asian fraternities and sororities at the UC campuses were recognized only as service organizations due to their memberships focus on specific Asian groups and to the exclusion of other ethnic groups, the goal of the founders was to transcend this limitation. The founders hoped to set new and higher standards of excellence for all Asian-interest organizations to follow, while feeling a need to offer a fraternity that would be recognized by the IFC and the Greek system.

 

While the original charter focused on Asian Pacific Americans, people from all ethnic backgrounds were welcome to join and support the brotherhood of Lambda Phi Epsilon. Their vision was that the members would eventually become the leaders of their respective communities and bridge the gaps that divided the Asian American community through an affiliation with a common organization. Master Craig Ishigo and Darryl L. Mu signed the charter as president and vice president, respectively. Unknowingly, their efforts had set the stage for the emergence of the largest organization of its kind. To this very day, Lambda Phi Epsilon exists as the only international Asian American interest fraternity to be recognized by both the North-American Interfraternity Conference and the National Asian Pacific Islander American Panhellenic Association.

 

In early fall of 2014, a group of ambitious, bold, and entrepreneurial men from varied backgrounds assembled to form an interest group for the world’s largest Asian interest fraternity at Syracuse University. They went about choosing to name their interest group “Prestige” to illustrate the type of reputation they want their values and outcomes to reflect. Although most of them started out as complete strangers, they quickly forged a bond of brotherhood that strengthened over time as their lofty ideas transformed into tangible feats. Through hosting meaningful service events, facilitating cultural exchanges, and engaging in activist dialogue over the past four months, the interest group enriched the lives of their fellow students and community members. On the morning of March 28, 2015, seven crusading charters established the Charter Class of Syracuse University Lambda Phi Epsilon. A probate show was held on campus on April 4, 2015 to formally introduce the new charters to their multicultural Greek system.

Lambda Phi Epsilon is an organization that will challenge every aspect of your college life. The road to becoming a brother of Lambda Phi Epsilon is not easy as it requires drive and dedication towards achieving the organization’s various goals, but the rewards are well worth it. New members enter into a brotherhood that is rich in tradition and strong in its bonds while learning how to become a leader in their schools, their communities, and the real world. It takes a certain type of man to become a Lambda—someone who wants to become a leader among men.

 

Perhaps that’s you.

 

Many brothers have said that the reason they joined Lambda Phi Epsilon was because they could see and feel a sense of brotherhood among the existing members that they could not find elsewhere. However, the brotherhood extends far beyond the reach of a single school. With chapters across the country, brothers have a chance to network with others from all over, bringing with it many new opportunities and friendships. Membership does not end with the undergraduate years. Numerous alumni associations exist all across the country, bringing both newly graduated brothers and those with more experience in the real world to continue their contribution to society.

 

Lambda Phi Epsilon not only seeks to bring together a diverse group of men who share common interests, concerns, backgrounds, and cultures, but those who show the confidence of a leader. This leadership is pivotal in achieving the goals of the fraternity, which include servicing the community through various philanthropies, increasing Asian awareness, promoting academic scholarship, and strengthening the Asian American voice in the community. Each brother has a vital role in making these goals attainable, and the principles that they learn are passed down to new members in hopes that they will become the next generation of leaders among men.

Membership: Transfer (Cornell)

Social Media  

What I Learned: My new member education process helped me learn that through hard work, my line brothers and I would be able to achieve a greater goal together than by ourselves. We learned to share responsibilities and to work as a group to be efficient. Doing group projects with my classmates was a totally different experience than building brotherhood with my line brothers. Through moments of adversity, I learned how important teamwork was because it made us communicate with one another to form a stronger bond. Overall, this process has made me learn to become a more compassionate and caring person.

What I Learned: I have grown the most through my new member education process through my ability to speak more freely about what I am thinking. I am not as afraid to be wrong. The majority of the values instilled within my new member education process centralized on how to be a better leader and a more confident man. With the help of my brothers, I was able to find ways where I could develop myself as a leader. Speaking out and sharing opinions with my brothers have allowed me to gain confidence in myself in speaking out to other people.

Major: Systems & Information Systems

Membership: Alumni

Social Media  

What I Learned: I learned about the power of vulnerability and why it is important to stay humble and know how to progress with life based on who you are. It is extremely important that we accept ourselves and make sure that we use that to our advantage to become better people. The intake process constantly motivates me to become a better person by giving back to my community and becoming the change I want to see. As active members of the fraternity, my line brothers and I will inherit larger responsibilities to make sure that our chapter accomplishes the goals that we wish to achieve.

Name: Mr. Kevin Yeung

Nickname: Cannon

Ethnicity: Chinese

HometownCambridge, MA

Major: Economics

Membership: Active

Social Media  

What I Learned: I grew up without the opportunity to experience what it is like to have a blood brother or a sister. The Lambda Phi Epsilon new member education process not only enlightened me of the true meaning of brotherhood, but also developed me intensively as a man. Through my intake process, I met an incredible group of guys to share and build experiences. Although we began as complete strangers, going through this process enabled me to realize that we have become such a tightly knit unit. I’m glad to finally find my group—my brothers—whom I have been longing for my whole life.

What I Learned: My fraternity drives me to be the best individual I can be. It transformed me into a leader ready to lead others by example. Learning about leadership, authenticity, and the bystander effect have been helpful tools guiding me to success. Without my brothers, I would not have as much success as I have today. They’ve been with me through thick and thin, watched me at my lowest point, and raised me to my fullest potential. I have never been able to establish trust so quickly among a group of people, and without them, this experience would have never been the same.

Membership: Alumni

What I Learned: Lambda Phi Epsilon challenges me to embrace new perspectives and makes me think about my career and future as early as my college year. Starting the new education process as late as my junior year of my undergraduate career and getting myself involved in many extracurricular activities on campus—serving as a resident advisor and leading as president of an engineering organization among a number of other roles—I was still able to learn how to be an effective leader and team player. Increased maturity and improved networking with professionals in my field allows me to fulfill my life’s noble purpose.

Social Media  

What I Learned: Brotherhood is not something concretely defined. It encompasses everything from my actions to my beliefs and my thoughts. True brotherhood is eternal, and it requires the utmost dedication from within me and my brothers. With challenging tasks that involve chartering a new organization, every single brother utilized his individual talents. I wasn’t sure how I’d fit in, but I realized that even something small can contribute to the bigger picture. Where one person lacked skill, another person was able to make up for it. Lambda Phi Epsilon has given me the opportunity to find brothers I will have for life.

9

Name: Mr. Justin Lim

Nickname: Everest

Birthday: October 1, 1995

Ethnicity: Korean

Hometown: Northvale, NJ

Major: Information Technology & Finance

Membership: Active

Social Media  

What I Learned: It’s an impossible task to try and define brotherhood through a static definition—the reason being that the very idea of what brotherhood means is constantly changing. Since brotherhood is such a multi-faceted phenomenon that grows and takes on new life each and every day, the way I define brotherhood grows and changes as well. Brotherly ties are not solely characterized through relationships bound by blood. My brothers and I are connected to one another as a result of shared experiences; strong kin-like relationships involve sacrifice and vulnerability. Brotherhood is a bond that is forged out of respect and love.

10

Name: Mr. Victor Wong

Nickname: Tremble

Birthday: May 8, 1996

Ethnicity: Chinese

Hometown: New York, NY

Major: Information Technology

Membership: Active

Social Media  

What I Learned: Brotherhood is the sense of belonging, that there are people around you that will support you no matter the situation. Brotherhood enables you to find the individual skills you possess and use it to the fullest potential, and this enables you and the brothers to work at their fullest potential. Doing so gives us the ability to work much more collectively as a group to accomplish common goals. In my new member education process, I valued how brotherhood was interwoven into our self-discovery. Learning about our individuality enables us to become more authentic and share our true identity with others.

11

Name: Mr. Phillip Nguyen

Nickname: SCAR

Birthday: April 15, 1996

Ethnicity: Vietnamese

Hometown: Syracuse, NY

Major: Mechanical Engineering

Membership: Active

Social Media  

What I Learned: To me, brotherhood is a bond that you have with people who you hold dearly in your heart. They are the people who will always look out for you, who will always have your back, who will make sacrifices for you even if the cost is great. It’s not something that a person can acquire overnight. A foundation needs to be set first and then it takes time and effort to build the brotherhood to its fullest potential. To me, brothers are eternal and will always love you unconditionally no matter what happens. I’m grateful to have a brotherhood where I know that there will always be someone there to chill with and create new experiences.

12

Name: Mr. Hein San

Nickname: Stealth

Birthday: April 25, 1997

Ethnicity: Burmese

Hometown: Syracuse, NY

Major: Chemical Engineering

Membership: Active

Social Media  

What I Learned: Brotherhood means being able to support the people you care about through thick and thin. It means sacrificing for the betterment of a brother in need. It doesn’t matter if there is class the next morning; it doesn’t matter if there are other obligations you have to fulfill because when a brother is really in need you go there and help him even if it is just being there. Being able to form a brotherhood is a privilege because there is a give and take. I trust and I know that my brothers will do the same for me. Brotherhood is a never-ending cycle of trust, and once built, cannot be broken.

13

Name: Mr. Tim Wong

Nickname: Shockwave

Birthday: March 4, 1996

Ethnicity: Chinese

Hometown: Hong Kong

Major: Computer Engineer

Membership: Active

Social Media  

What I Learned: Growing up, I’ve always wanted a brother who can play video games, engage in sports, and guide me to push through in tough situations. I think my fundamental definition of brotherhood has been shaped by that. I feel that brotherhood is about supporting one another, lifelong mentorship, and sacrifice. In an ideal brotherhood, no one is isolated and alone. Brothers may not see each other every day or hang out with each other frequently, but they will unconditionally be there for each other in times of need. Brotherhood is also an eternal mentorship—you grow up with other people and you constantly develop over time.

14

Name: Mr. Richard Yang

Nickname: Tesla

Birthday: August 12, 1997

Ethnicity: Chinese

Hometown: Pleasanton, CA

Major: Finance

Membership: Active

Social Media  

What I Learned: Brotherhood to me is the intangible bond that people experience with each other through the memories they have shared. It is where those who have gone through thick and thin will continue lend support. Brothers will act towards your best interest regardless of how far apart you may drift. Every time I come home from holidays, I was actually more excited to see the rest of the bros than any friend group. From that point forward, I knew that these people have grown past acquaintances but have, in my eyes, grown into brothers that are willing to sacrifice and look out for me.

What I Learned: Growing up in a community where people around you speak different language is very difficult when it comes to socializing. I didn’t have many friends growing up, so I always looked up to my brother and family. Therefore, brotherhood means a great deal to me because brotherhood is what made me who I am today. Brotherhood is trust, unconditional love, and unyielding support. In my opinion, trust is the most important part brotherhood because if one does not trust his brother, one can never truly be authentic. What unconditional love means in a brotherhood to me is knowing that someone is always there to help and support in any way they can.

What I Learned: Brotherhood is the sense of belonging, that there are people around you that will support you no matter the situation. Brotherhood enables you to find the individual skills you possess and use it to the fullest potential, and this enables you and the brothers to work at their fullest potential. Doing so gives us the ability to work much more collectively as a group to accomplish common goals. In my new member education process, I valued how brotherhood was interwoven into our self-discovery. Learning about our individuality enables us to become more authentic and share our true identity with others.

What I Learned:  I’ve learned that the lack of confidence holds me back in more ways than one. In order for me to achieve a task, I must first believe that I can do it before anyone else does. I also learned that by pushing myself to the limit, I have the potential to achieve so much more than I ever thought I could, which has helped me grow as a person. The new member education process gave me the clarity to make sound decisions and the confidence to defend them. Embracing challenges is a fundamental part of personal growth, which is key to living an authentic, fulfilling life.

What I Learned:  I’ve come to learn it’s not about what I don’t have—it’s about learning how to utilize my unique skills and abilities to my fullest potential. Obstacles and problems are unavoidable, but having an attitude to continue moving forward and to stay resilient is critical to growth. We should spend our lives as a continuous journey of improving ourselves and knowing who we are as an individual. Throughout the remainder of my life, I will take more risks and stop playing it so safe. And in doing so, I uphold the bonds of brotherhood by living my noble purpose.
