Sigma Phi Lambda

About Us

Who We Are

Sigma Phi Lambda is a sorority that strives to glorify God by providing a source of fellowship for Christian college women who sincerely seek to know His person, His will, and His ways. It is a non-denominational organization of sisters where fellowship with our most high God is fostered by growth in unity with one another. Through weekly meetings that include worship, encouragement, fellowship, and accountability, Phi Lamb provides an alternative to pan-Hellenic sororities. Sigma Phi Lambda is not presently, nor will it ever be pan-Hellenic.

Our History

Sigma Phi Lambda was prayerfully founded in 1988 at the University of Texas in Austin by women seeking to create a community of fellowship, accountability, and service in the name of Christ. The first meeting was held on February 5, 1988 with founding members Jackie Adams, Geana Williams, and Robin Maedgen. The first chapter grew to thirteen members by the end of that semester. There are now 27 chapters of Sigma Phi Lambda across the nation.


Our Purpose

Sigma Phi Lambda exists for the sole purpose of glorifying our Lord Jesus Christ and making His name great.
