Kappa Lambda Psi (ΚΛΨ) is a local sorority founded on Monday, April 28, 1980 at Glassboro State College (now Rowan University). The Sorority has five chapters, but only one is active. The Delta Chapter at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY, founded in October 1989, is the only existing chapter. The sorority was the first Greek Letter Organization on Marist College's campus.
"Kappa Lambda Psi was founded on April 28, 1980. It was founded by 28 founding sisters with the hopes to be the first sorority to go national since 1916. Together, we shall strive for this goal. To us, Kappa Lambda Psi isn’t just an organization, it's a way of life".
Founding of the Delta Chapter
Kappa Lambda Psi was founded by 28 women who had the hopes of creating the 27th national sorority to join the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) and the brothers of Zeta Psi. The Delta Chapter at Marist College, established in October 1989, was the first sorority to be granted a charter at Marist College.
