Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. was founded on January 15, 1908 on the beautiful campus of Howard University. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. is the first greek letter organization for black college educated women.

Lambda Pi Upsilon, Latinas Poderosas Unidas, Inc.
Lambda Pi Upsilon began with six women who sought to fight and address increasing social issues involving women in their community, particularly Latina women. They believed that, as a whole and working as a close support system, they could provide other women, especially Latinas, with the strength and aspirations needed to succeed. Located on a predominantly Caucasian campus, these six women were driven to find a sense of unity and commonality by approaching the ideas of cultural identity and growth of mind. These six women are known as our six pillars of strength.

Lambda Sigma Upsilon Latino Fraternity Inc.
Lambda Sigma Upsilon Latino Fraternity Inc. was founded on April 5, 1979 by 20 Latino men on the Livingston campus of Rutgers University as a social fellowship because they felt the academic needs of the minority student body were not being met. The letters LSU stand for the motto "Latinos Siempre Unidos" (Latinos Always United). Although it was founded as a Latino fraternity, LSU is quite diverse and runs on the belief that the Latino man derives from Africans, Spanish Europeans and Taino indians. LSU has four main goals: academic excellence, brotherhood, cultural awareness and being a role model in the community. Since its foundation in 1979 it has grown on to include nearly 60 chapters nationwide. The Abakua chapter of Lambda Sigma Upsilon Latino Fraternity Inc. was established on November 20, 2003 as the 31st chapter of the fraternity.
Chi Upsilon Sigma Latin Sorority Inc.
Chi Upsilon Sigma National Latin Sorority Incorporated was brought to the University of Bridgeport on Spring 2006 by five diverse women. The sorority was founded at Rutgers University on the New Brunswick campus in April 1980. We pride ourselves in being the first independent organization. We were the first Latina Organization to step and stroll. The chapter at the University of Bridgeport is the Alpha Rho Chapter and is very involved in political, cultural, educational and social awareness, as well as giving back to our community. Chi Upsilon Sigma is open to women of all ethnicities and backgrounds. We are not just a sisterhood, WE are a movement! Educating, Elevating, and Empowering Women since 1980.

Our seven illustrious founders, all educators, came together during a time that was difficult for people of color. Famously noted to be the only historically Black Greek letter sorority of the Divine Nine to be founded on a predominately White university, these incredible young women united under one premise: to create a sisterhood that focused on scholarship and service. The motto of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. since 1922, "Greater Service, Greater Progress" exemplifies the true sprit and integrity of this great organization.
