History

In the spring of 2016, a student interest group at Davidson College began advocating for a Latina-based sorority. The women felt passionately about bringing an organization that would help unify the Latina community and promote Latinx culture on campus. After 2 years of hard work, Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc. was invited to establish a chapter. In the spring of 2018, Cristina Bañuelos (National President), Elaine Townsend Utin, and Alzebeth Roman presented the sorority to Patterson Court Council and interested women. The interest group voted on the Sorority to come to campus. Without a doubt, the Sorority vision, mission, and goals aligned with the values of the interest group. Las Hermanas represented the professional, academic, and powerful women the interests aspired to be.

On December 1st, 2018, Leslie Vergara, Ariana Wasret, Yara Quezada, Genesis Canela, Crystal Ibarra, Olivia Pelaez, Alexa Cole, Jenny López, Veronica De La Mora, Odalys Anchondo, and Valerie Arias, founded the Alpha Gamma Chapter of Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc. with the assistance of a motivating expansion committee, including Adrienne Martinez, Abigail Jaimes, Rosita Vazquez, Nayira Warren, Alzebeth Roman, Jessica Castañeda, and Elaine Townsend Utin. It is the first Latina Greek-lettered organization to be established at Davidson College. Through community building events, civic engagement, and relationship building the Hermanas aim to provide an inclusive space on campus for themselves and the study body.
