Forming a Sisterhood
Five women from Michigan State University and Purdue University desired a Sisterhood and felt the need to create an organization that both of their respective schools were lacking. They wanted an all-inclusive organization that focused on the idea of the complete woman, while at the same time creating a multicultural sisterhood whose focus would lie with issues surrounding women living in the postmillennial era.
Michigan State and Purdue University chapters become established
On January 27, 2004 what had once been held as a dream finally became a reality. These five ladies would be known as the Amethyst Founders of Lambda Phi Xi Multicultural Sorority, with Lambda Phi Xi having joint founding birthplaces at Michigan State University and Purdue University Calumet.
The Amethyst Founders embarked on the journey of spreading their Illustrious Sisterhood to other institutions throughout the Midwest. While the first year of the sorority held much joy and excitement, it also proved quite arduous for our Five Amethyst Founders. Through expansion and membership intake, four ladies emerged during the first year of Lambda Phi Xi's existence that helped take the Sorority to new heights. These new Lady Xi's were bestowed the title of Onyx Founders; since without all of their hard work and tenacity, Lambda Phi Xi would not be what it is today, thus giving these four ladies Honorary Founder status.
Lambda Phi Xi Multicultural Sorority becomes incorporated
Holding steadfast to the pillars that make this organization distinct, the Amethyst and Onyx Founders transformed Lambda Phi Xi from its early vision into the organization that it is today, cherished by many. Lambda Phi Xi became incorporated on June 11, 2005, forever changing its name to Lambda Phi Xi Multicultural Sorority, Inc. Through our Illustrious Sisterhood, Lady Xi's hope to show the world that diversity can be a masterpiece.
Lady Xi’s Continue to Thrive
The sorors of Lambda Phi Xi Multicultural Sorority, Incorporated continue to operate at the Epsilon Chapter at University of Nevada, Reno and intake new lines yearly. We are eager to open new chapters at other universities.
