History of Alpha Phi Gamma:
Alpha Phi Gamma emerged in the Fall of 1993 and became a reality on February 1st, 1994, as the first Asian-American Interest Sorority on the campus of California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. The Founders were Allex Choi, Candy Cunanan, Christine Nguyen, Sandie Rillera, Kolleen Kim, Grace Hsieh and Jennifer Oku. These Sisters wanted to bring together all women of different nationalities through the bonds of friendship and sisterhood. The sorority was established to promote service and Asian-Awareness to the University and to the community, allowing for all different nationalities to discover what other cultures have to offer. Alpha Phi Gamma's basis is it's pride in being open to new ideas and the understanding of the lifestyle of an Asian American woman.
In the hopes of creating strong minded leaders, Alpha Phi Gamma strives to provide opportunities for its members and for all women of different nationalities within our campus and our communities. We work alongside different organizations in order to hold academic, social, fundraising, service and philanthropy events. Our philanthropy events are geared towards raising awareness of the different nationalities, cultures and heritages we encounter everyday as well as towards raising awareness of the fight against violence towards women. Our Sisters seek to spread awareness of this cause to build support in our communities year-round.
Mu Chapter History:
On October 9, 2009, the Asian Sorority Interest Group (ASIG), was founded by Kaonue Xiong to create a foundation for women to form bonds of friendship, and most importantly, sisterhood.

By embracing and celebrating the differences of each sister, we empower women to reach their fullest potential and to create a strong community. Our mission is to promote growth through higher education, scholarship, professional opportunity, networking, and community service. Our hopes are to engrave in every Sister's heart an unforgettable bond that will last a lifetime. This legacy shall continue with each woman that enters our Sisterhood.
