Colony History:

On October 9, 2009, the Asian Sorority Interest Group was established to fill a void in the University of Minnesota’s Greek Community. Determined to bring the first Asian Sorority to the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, Angeline Heng, Elizabeth Kong, Choua Lee, Pang Zong Nancy Moua, Stacy Nou Moua, Sheng Thao, Nikita Nachao Vang, Kaonue Xiong, Mai Te Xiong and May Yang were inducted as the Charter “Classics” Class of Alpha Phi Gamma on June 15, 2014. In doing so, these Sisters established the first Asian Sorority at the University of Minnesota as well as the state of Minnesota. These Sisters acknowledge the importance of academic excellence, Asian awareness, community involvement, personal development and the potential for every woman to become a leader. The experiences and traditions that are formed shall become the cornerstone, truth, and strength for any woman seeking the lifelong Sisterhood of Alpha Phi Gamma.

Mission & Vision

The purpose of this organization is to bring together all women of different nationalities through bonds of friendship and Sisterhood. We strive to provide a space for our members and for the members of our community to come together in order to lift each other up to success. Our events promote friendship and Sisterhood between all women and also serves as a call to action to eliminate domestic violence, alert and educate the public, empower victims/survivors of domestic abuse and to unite our voices. Alpha Phi Gamma exists to provide service, whether it is towards Asian-Awareness or domestic violence awareness or other worthy causes, to the University and the surrounding communities for the betterment of society.
