Duke Lambda Phi Epsilon started as a dream in a Central campus apartment. Unsatisfied by the existing Greek system, a group of enthusiastic men set out to start something new, something they could call their own. After much hard work under the guidance of Upsilon Chapter: The Johns Hopkins University, the 41st chapter of Lambda Phi Epsilon was established at Duke University on November 23, 2003 by eight dedicated men who wanted to make a lasting mark on campus.
On May 27, 2012, the Duke University Chapter achieved Associate Status at National Convention XXIII. The Duke University Chapter successfully served as the host chapter for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Lambda Phi Epsilon Charter Class and guided the establishment of their chapter on March 31, 2013.
Lambdas can be seen in many aspects of campus life. We have brothers in club sports teams, the Asian Student Association, the Inter Greek Council, The Chronicle staff, America Reads/Counts, the Investment Club, the Duke EMS squad, and many other organizations. We have alumni in business school, medical school, law school, and working professionally in industry and government.
Lambdas also give back to the community. We hold our bone marrow drive every year for our national philanthropy: National Marrow Donor Program and we frequently give back to the Durham Community by volunteering at Habitat for Humanity. Despite each brother’s varying interests, each member of Lambda Phi Epsilon holds the ideals of Brotherhood, Scholarship, and Philanthropy close to his heart.
