Phi Sigma Rho
About phi sigma rho
Phi Sigma Rho is a social sorority for women and non-binary people in technical studies that is dedicated to serving members and the community by promoting high standards of personal integrity, lifelong bonds of sisterhood, and academic and professional excellence with a social balance.
The Alpha Chapter of Phi Sigma Rho was founded in 1984 at Purdue University by Abby McDonald and Rashmi Khanna. Due to the demands of their engineering program, they were unable to participate in traditional sorority recruitment, so they set out to start a sorority that provided the flexibility necessary for the rigor of their engineering courses while maintaining a commitment to sisterhood. The Nu Chapter was founded in 2003 by Christina Yang and Vivian Ku and continues to be the only sorority of its kind at UCLA.
