Founded at Yale University in 1895, Pi Lambda Phi was the first non-sectarian fraternity in the United States, accepting men of good character without regard to race or religion. We aim to cultivate a community of men who promote academics, leadership, social skills, and lifelong fraternal bonds. The University of Virginia’s Omega Alpha Chapter, founded in 1932 and located at 504 Rugby Road, has had a strong and effectual presence at the University for over 80 years.
Today, Pi Lambda Phi continues to maintain a strong, diverse brotherhood and hosts a myriad of successful social and philanthropic events.
