On May 4, 2013, we celebrate the 17th anniversary of the founding of Alpha Rho Lambda Sorority’s Beta Chapter.
In the fall of 1995, six Latina women came together in search of an organization that would give them the support network they felt was lacking on their campus. They searched for an organization dedicated to sisterhood, loyalty to each other and their ancestral and modern Latino cultures, unity, vision, academic excellence and uplifting the Latino community at large.
After a search that lasted years for some, they finally came together and realized Alpha Rho Lambda Sorority, Inc./Alianza de Raíces Latinas fulfilled all they were searching for and more.
On May 4, 1996, those six women founded Beta Chapter of Alpha Rho Lambda Sorority, Inc. at Tufts University.
Happy anniversary to Epsilon Chapter’s Founding Hermanas: Vivian Baez-Montero, Allison Emerson, Maritza Melendez, Maribel Lara, Erika Suarez and Wendy Vargas.
