On January 31st, 2012, 15 women at SUNY College at Buffalo met in Social Hall in hopes to create an organization that set them apart from the rest. Their goal was to bring together a diverse group of girls who could be both their mirrors, as well as their opposites. They wanted to create an organization which would focus on motivating women to excel academically in their chosen field of study, to become socially confident as an individual, and to further mold our community into a comfortable, safe environment. Lastly, they wanted to kindle the first chapter that values the life-long ties among women.

As an organization delta Delta Phi Zeta strives to strengthen the social and academic ties amongst women and to achieve academic success in each woman’s chosen field of study. It is also very important to promote independence and strength amongst women. Lastly, to promote community service and involvement to restore Buffalo to once again be “The City of Lights” that it once was.

Lambda Sigma Upsilon

We, the brothers of Lambda Sigma Upsilon Latino Fraternity, Inc., strongly believe that many individual and collective successes can be achieved through the efforts of a culturally diverse brotherhood of college and university men who, through close association with each other, maintain honesty, commitment, respect, and trust.

Lambda Sigma Upsilon was founded on April 5, 1979 in Rutgers New Brunswick in New Jersey by 20 men of Latino decent. Upon recognizing one another at various rallies and protests around their community, they decided to meet to discuss different issues surrounding the university and outside community. They came to the realization that the minority population was an under represented group and formed Latinos Siempre Unidos to act as an organized voice and a unified force... The Kyodrowe Chapter was established at the University at Buffalo in November of 2002. This chapter was founded by 8 men in search of creating an organized voice with goals and substance unparalleled to any other organization on campus. In the Spring of 2004, eight new men crossed into this Brotherhood, furthering the success of the chapter. Fall of 2005 welcomed the newest member of our chapter. Sharing the vision of the previous 16 Brothers that came before him at this chapter, he went through intake and crossed into the Brotherhood.

Mu Sigma Upsilon

Mu Sigma Upsilon’s “purpose is to unite all women from all different nationalities and share with them our theme ‘Women Always United.’ Together, we share the same purpose concerning our academic, political, and social interests.” By the early 1980s, more women from culturally diverse backgrounds were pursuing college degrees. In this exciting time, five women came together to create a support system for these women, a student organization that would celebrate diversity and foster progress for years to come. Through their dedication, Mu Sigma Upsilon Sorority, Incorporated was founded on November 21, 1981 at Rutgers University New Brunswick as the first multicultural sorority in the nation. Mu Sigma Upsilon has grown to a national sisterhood with over fifty chapter locations ranging from Massachusetts to Texas, and a diverse group of more than 1,000 women from 80+ cultural backgrounds.

In the fall of 1909, the sophomore class at the College of the City of New York had found itself embarrassed by "lowly freshmen". At a school where "warfare" between freshman and sophomore class was a tradition, the sophomores found it necessary to regain their fallen honor. Class Marshal Lester Cohen called a meeting of sophomore leaders on November 26, 1909 to decide on a plan for redemption. Eight appeared in proper order Ira N. Lind, Jacob Kaplan, Lester Cohen, Samuel Ginsburg, Hyman I. Jacobson, David D. Levinson, Abraham N. Kerner, Adolph I. Fabis, who are now known as the founders of Sigma Alpha Mu.

Sigma Alpha Mu's stated mission is "to guide each undergraduate member toward a more meaningful life, to prepare members for responsible fraternity and community involvement, and to create social and service opportunities for its alumni." Its creed is "To foster and maintain among its sons a spirit of fraternity, a spirit of mutual moral aid and support; to instill and maintain in the hearts of its sons love for and loyalty to Alma Mater and its ideals; to inculcate among its sons such ideals as will result in actions worthy of the highest precepts of true manhood, democracy, and humanity."
