Phi Chapter was founded on December 10th, 1995 by 9 men of different backgrounds, but with the same goal of fulfilling the needs of our community. For thirteen years, Phi Chapter has done an extensive job on establishing a presence for Latinos at the University of Maryland through various community service initiatives and educational programming such as our annual Latino/a Bienvenida welcome orientation, and annual Toy Drives. Considering that we are undergraduate students, we continue to think of and expand on new programs to educate the University and Latino community.
We hope that your visit here is both informative and helpful.
