We are the Mu Chapter of the Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc. located at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, in Amherst, Massachusetts. Kappa Phi Lambda is an Asian-interest sorority, not an Asian-exclusive sorority, grounded in sisterhood, service, and cultural diversity.
There are 29 sisters in our active house. With chapters and associate chapters across 25 universities and over 4000+ sisters, we have a strong presence across the globe.
FIND YOUR COMMUNITY
We understand that coming to college is a new and exciting experience! Kappas will not only become a support group to guide you through this chapter of your life, but what's better than creating unforgettable memories with sisters while being involved on campus through our service, philanthropy, and cultural events?
LIFETIME FRIENDSHIPS, ONE SISTERHOOD
Joining Kappas connects you to a diverse and unique group of girls that all look to create everlasting bonds and friendships. We even have sisterhood chairs that create events for sisters to just hang out together and relax when we're not studying for our classes. Many of our sisters become each others' roommates, lifelong friends after graduation, and even each others' bridesmaids!
GROW TOGETHER, LEARN TOGETHER
Being a part of Kappas is more than just joining a sorority. We believe that each of our sister's top priorities is their education and we motivate one another to do well in our academics. ΚΦΛ's values of giving back to the community will also provide opportunities for you to grow personally and professionally. Let Kappas become a resource for you to focus on causes you're passionate about and become part of a sisterhood that values women leadership.
Nina Nguyen, President
Ironically, I came into college already set on not wanting to rush or be affiliated with Greek life. I was also a huge introvert so I felt like it wasn’t the community for me - but I knew I wanted to learn how to step out of my comfort zone. When coming to my very first rush event, I could immediately see the close bonds between sisters. Kappas truly embody eternal sisterhood through constant support and love. What had really caught my attention was the service pillar. My highschool didn’t provide many opportunities to give back to my community, and seeing that Kappas both hosts events to donate to our philanthropies and volunteers at unique events, I knew this was an organization I wanted to be part of. On top of that, Kappas allowed me to take on leadership roles that pushed me to grow both professionally and personally. I can proudly say I am the best version of myself because of my sisters.

When transferring into UMass Amherst, I never thought I would find such a diverse community with strong and independent girls who are so close-knit. The pillar that mainly drove me to rush for Kappas is Sisterhood. Sisterhood is what drove me to rush for Kappas because I always wanted to find that special bond with not only one person but with a whole community. During the time of becoming a sister, I unlocked so many new traits about myself that I never knew existed and it has not only made me a better person but it has made me grow immensely. I got to discover these traits because of the positivity Kappas hold and because of the push they give, and for that, I am eternally grateful to them. Words can’t even describe the levels of support and comfort they have given me. Although I have been a sister for only a short time, I am able to be who I am around these girls and they accept me for who I am. Kappas not only taught me to step out of my comfort zone but to also accept me for me. Kappas gave me that chance to be part of a sisterhood that showed me no matter how many times we fall, a sister is right there to pick you right back up. Not only did rushing Kappas change my life but they have given me so many different opportunities to grow and to develop.

Kappas mean so much to me because joining Kappas taught me so many things and helped me build my identity and self-esteem. I used to be a very shy girl throughout my life. I felt like I couldn’t be myself because I was afraid of people judging me. I felt afraid to talk in front of other people and just being myself in general. I knew I had to make a change to become more confident so I joined Kappas in the hopes of finding my true self. With a strong support system from sisters, I was able to come out of my shell and challenge myself. I took up many leadership opportunities which contributed to my personal growth and professional development. I never saw myself as a leader before and these experiences gave me so much confidence. Also, I met so many great people through Kappas and I never regret joining Kappas. I gained so many wonderful experiences and memories with amazing people that I will never forget. In addition, I was able to network with people from different countries and it truly made my college experience so much better. As an alum, I am happy I always have someone to reach out to even after I graduated and I appreciate continuous efforts from both undergrad and alums to keep our sisterhood forever.
