Expansion News!

Lambda Alpha Upsilon 

is currently seeking to partner with Ursinus College in bringing the first national Latino oriented, not exclusive fraternity to campus. 

This is a great opportunity for students to join a diverse organization that focuses on Brotherhood, Scholarship and Community service.

Although LAU is a Latino-oriented fraternity, membership is not limited to students of Latino descent.  The brotherhood enjoys and welcomes a vast and diverse group of individuals representing many ethnic backgrounds.  LAU takes pride in being a selective fraternity and use this diversity to learn from its members and preserve its strong fraternal bond.  This allows our brotherhood to grow into a powerful network of professionals, as we steadily expand to other regions of the country. With the help of Angela Cuva who serves as the Greek Advisor, the expansion committee and the Brothers at West Chester University of Pennsylvania will be working on recruitment initiatives to reach our 10 member requirement to fully establish LAU during fall 2016 semester. Any students interested in learning more about our extensive fraternal network please email expansion@lambdas.com.
