Chi Kappa Rho
Chi Kappa Rho is a local sorority founded by nine freshmen women in 1963 at the University of New Haven, making us the first Greeks on campus. XKP is a secret sorority that thrives on community service and social events at the University of New Haven and in the local community. We believe in promoting a better understanding and friendship among the women at the University of New Haven. In addition to helping the community, XKP lends a hand to the University for numerous events including the Alumni Ball and Family Day.
Our founding advisor, Virginia M. Parker, is honored annually with a Fashion Show held in her honor in addition to a scholarship being given out each year in her name. We are the only Greek organization on campus to have a scholarship. Our philanthropy is Mothers Against Drunk Driving which we raise money and awareness for each year. Some of our major events include: CT Flavors, Taco Social, Freeze Pop Social, Annual Fashion Show and our formal known as the Sweetheart Ball.
The sisters stick by their motto which is "share the friendship and spirit," not just within the close bond of the sisters, but within the UNH community.

Hermandad de Sigma Iota Alpha Inc.
Hermandad de Sigma Iota Alpha, Incorporada was founded on September 29, 1990 in four founding schools in the state of New York. The Alpha Lambda Chapter at the University of New Haven was founded on January 13th 2006 becoming the first undergraduate chapter in the state of Connecticut. SIA strives to promote education and unity among women. We endeavor to foster a sense of pride for our heritage, and in doing so hope to abolish ignorance, prejudice, and racism in the society at large. Our sorority strives to serve our community by participating in local, national, and international causes. We encourage all women, whether they are in the Hermandad or not, to promote a diverse cultural and social environment. Our endeavor is to work as sisters united through common goals; however, we value personal identity and individualism. Through the bonds of sisterhood, we develop leadership, scholarship, sportsmanship, and friendship.
Lambda Psi Delta
Lambda Psi Delta was founded on March 9, 1997 at Yale University by nine strong, intelligent, and dedicated women in response to the growing need on campuses to unite all women who believe in unconditional sisterhood, self-upliftment and commitment to the community. It was their mission to create an organization whose primary goal was the upliftment and empowerment of women and their communities through intellectual and leadership development and cultural awareness. They sought to create an organization where each woman could fight for her own cause in her own community, at the same time uniting all other communities to support and aid in the struggle through the works of the sorority. And so, Lambda Psi Delta, a multi-ethnic, service based organization, for women by women and about women, was formed to give all women a chance to experience true sisterhood.

The Iota Mu Chapter has seen great success in the two years that they have been on the University of New Haven campus.
