Lambda Phi Epsilon is an organization that will challenge every aspect of your college life. Not only will you learn how to become a leader, you will be empowered to make a positive impact in your community and in your life after college. You will create bonds that will last a lifetime and meet people who will leave a lasting impression. Lambda life extends far beyond the reach of school. With chapters across the country, you will have a chance to network with brothers from all over, bringing with it many opportunities, both during your time as an active and when you become an alumnus. In addition, our chapter maintains a tight network of alumni who are always willing to offer professional advice and give a helping hand. Granted, the road to becoming a Lambda is not easy, but the rewards are well worth it.
Through the process, you will end up with some of the best friends you will ever make and be able to laugh over some of the most memorable stories. Lambdas have fun…and lots of it. We are known for our social gatherings, but being a Lambda also carries with it a strong sense of pride and a reputation for being a well-rounded individual. It takes a certain type of man to become a Lambda, someone who wants to become a leader among men.
How will joining Lambdas affect my future?
“A common concern rushees have about joining a fraternity like Lambda Phi Epsilon is the amount of time the fraternity will take and how it will affect their academic pursuits and participation in other activities in college. I think you will soon learn that rather than being a restrictive force, Lambda Phi Epsilon empowers each of us and enables each individual member to achieve his fullest potential.
Many members of the fraternity participate in a variety of activities at Stanford while being actively involved in Lambdas. Among the members of the fraternity are AA’s, PAA’s, RCC’s, PHE’s, RA’s, and class presidents. We also have a number of actives who have held leadership positions in UCAA, AASA, ASSU, Stanford Student Enterprises, Stanford Consulting, Stanford Finance, and The Charles R. Blyth Fund. The actives also find time to fulfill their interests and hobbies in Alliance Street Dance, Orchestra, break-dancing, public service, varsity sports, etc.
The success of the alumni from the Stanford chapter of Lambda Phi Epsilon shows that joining a fraternity will not have a detrimental effect on your academic and career goals. Several of our recent alumni have founded successful Internet startups. We have alumni in a variety of business related firms and schools, such as Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, CSFB Tech, McKinsey, Bain, BCG, several venture capital firms, Stanford GSB, and Harvard Business School. Alumni also work in the high tech computer industry, overseas in Japan and Hong Kong, and one even as an Army first lieutenant stationed in Korea. Other alumni also attend top law and medical schools, such as Columbia, Harvard, Yale, and Stanford.
Because of this large, diverse, and successful network, our actives have access to an invaluable source of academic and vocational information. In my experience, older actives, recent alumni, and alumni whom I’ve never even met have been extremely helpful in guiding me throughout my four years at Stanford. This network is only one example of the way the invisible bonds of brotherhood have empowered–not constrained–me as an individual.”

Do I have to be Asian to join?
No. While Lambda Phi Epsilon is an Asian American interest fraternity,there are many brothers of Lambda Phi Epsilon in our chapter and all over the nation who are not of Asian descent. We come from a diversity of socioeconomic backgrounds and ethnicities. Our events are geared toward promoting Asian American awareness for the Stanford community. In addition, we support and participate in many university wide events hosted on campus with other organizations as well. We encourage everyone of all backgrounds interested in our fraternity to rush.
