A letter from our president

Hello all, and welcome to our website! 

My name is Madeline Trotter and I am beyond excited to be serving as the president of the Nu chapter of Phi Sigma Rho here at UCLA. Phi Sigma Rho is an associate Panhellenic sorority for women in the hard science and engineering fields. Our goal is to serve our sisters and the community alike by promoting high standards of personal integrity, respect, and character, lifelong bonds of sisterhood, an appreciation for diversity and inclusion, and a healthy balance of academic excellence and social prosperity. 


Of course, life for us looks a bit different during the pandemic, but our values remain at the center of what makes us a sisterhood. We are doing what we can to continue holding virtual events, meetings, and philanthropies; in fact, in the spring we were able to host over 30 small scale virtual events for our sisters. Our goal during this time is to continue providing members with a sense of normalcy and support, and maintain the strong community we have already established. 


It is without a doubt that my time at UCLA has been tremendously improved having been a part of this sisterhood. Through Phi Rho, I’ve found an incredible community of awe-inspiring, high achieving, fun loving women, and it’s through this sorority that I’ve met some of my best friends. Through highs and lows, I know I will always have this amazing group of women to laugh, stress, cry, and smile with. I am so grateful for the community I’ve found and the support I’ve received in Phi Rho, and I know it will last me a lifetime. 

So with that, I invite you to browse the following pages: check out our fall recruitment schedule and registration, read about our philanthropies, Light the Night and Phi Rho Your Boat, and learn a little bit about what makes us Phi Rho. Feel free to use the contact page to reach out with any questions you may have! Thanks so much for visiting


With love

Madeline Trotter
