Welcome

Welcome to the Alpha Lambda Chapter of Phi Mu!

"From the outside looking in, you can never understand the love of our Sisterhood; and from the inside looking out, you can never explain it."
 
Here at Louisiana Tech University, Phi Mu is more than a sorority, letters, or a creed... it is our home away from home! From the very beginning, members are committed to community service, campus involvement, academic excellence, and social accomplishments. We strive to exemplify Phi Mu's three ideals:  Love, Honor and Truth.
 
Together, we sisters share an extremely special bond; it is something that you can only fully understand once you have experienced it for yourself. While looking at our website, we hope you will get a little glimpse of our remarkable sisterhood.  
 
 
Thank you for visiting our website!
