Alpha Phi Delta's youngest chapter is maturing quickly. Epsilon Lambda Chapter (made up of students attending the University of New Haven), Founded as a colony in fall of 2015, and chartered as Epsilon Lambda Chapter in February 2017, the Chapter returns this fall with 27 undergraduate brothers. The brothers are shown here supporting our Italian Heritage by displaying our Fraternity's greek letters in Green, White and Red — the colors of the Italian flag. The National Fraternity is looking forward to a very successful year on the campus of University of New Haven due to the fraternal zeal of our Epsilon Lambda brothers. Faciamus!
The National Council of Alpha Phi Delta Fraternity, on February 18, 2017, vote unanimously to grant our UNH colony a charter as our Epsilon Lambda Chapter (our 104th chapter), composed of students attending the University of New Haven, in New Haven, Connecticut. The new chapter was placed in our Connecticut District, joining our Gamma Xi Chapter, Connecticut Alumni Club and Merrimack Valley Alumni Club.
