National History

alpha Kappa Delta Phi was established at the University of California at Berkeley in the fall of 1989, and recognized by the College Panhellenic Association on February 7, 1990. The fourteen founding sisters: Betty Chu, Karin Co, Susan Kim, Nancy Lee, Sherri Leung, Annie Loo, Belinda Ma, Anita Ng, Serene Ngin, Fannie Pon, Josie Sun, Daisy Wu, Jill Yoshimura, and Reina Yuan, dedicated themselves to establishing a strong and lasting organization, which would provide Asian American women the opportunity to participate in the Greek system. Soon after being recognized by the College Panhellenic Association, the founding sisters brought together a diverse group of women who shared with them the goals of sisterhood, scholarship, and leadership. These ideals were to later set the foundation for alpha Kappa Delta Phi’s purpose.

Chapter History

In the fall of 1995, the tradition of alpha Kappa Delta Phi continued at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. The colony at the University of Michigan was officially founded on October 14, 1995. The Charter Class consisted of twelve women: Tricia Bagamasbad, May Chan, Jihwon Chang, Li-Hsing Chou, Jennifer Chua, Lien Fu, Mafan Gong, Caroline Huang, Min Jung Kim, Mona Kwan, Jennifer Tai, and Irene Yuan.

Since the installation of the Charter class, alpha Kappa Delta Phi at the University of Michigan has continued to flourish. Each sister, in contributing something unique and valuable, has made alpha Kappa Delta Phi at the University of Michigan what it is today.

With a firm belief in timeless friendship through sisterhood, alpha Kappa Delta Phi at the University of Michigan continues to grow and prosper, while embracing tradition and shaping the future.
