UCI's First Asian American Interest Sorority
Phi Zeta Tau is UCI's first Asian American Sorority founded in February 1983 dedicated to empowering women and illuminating our campus communities. Our founders were originally Lil Sisses of Lambda Theta Delta, the first Asian-American Fraternity on the UC Irvine campus, and saw the need for an Asian-American Sorority at UC Irvine. After much planning, effort, and recruiting, the founding members made Phi Zeta Tau a reality. The year 1983 marked a successful beginning and introduced the Alpha Class. Determination and enthusiasm filled the newly formed sorority and proved to be prevalent in the years to follow. Since then, the sisters of Phi Zeta Tau have been involved on the university campus, the surrounding community, AGI (Asian Greeks of Irvine) and AGC (The Asian Greek Council of Southern California). Phis has grown into a strong community of inspiring women who continuously give back to our community for about 40 years.
