Nu Chapter of Sigma Omicron Pi was established on August 10, 2008 at Binghamton University by eight dedicated Asian American women. The founding sisters are Christine Chan, Angie Lin, Jacqueline Lee, Irene Lee, Linda Su, Jennifer Chung, Keli Huang, and Rose Chau.
These eight sisters wanted to bring SOPi to campus for its respectable reputation, values, and close knit nationwide sisterhood. The concept of a "sorority" in college culture came with negative connotations and more than a few unpopular stereotypes and that was exactly what the founding sisters envisioned to change at Binghamton University. Their was goal to have a sisterhood that embraced uniqueness and individuality within our sisters, not take it away. To always support one another, build each other up and never leave each other behind, to gain professional confidence, and be strong Asian-American female leaders. Since then, our chapter has grown in active members and our reputation has developed to become one of the most respectable organizations on campus. We continue to withhold the strong traditions of our sorority, bounded by our four objectives:
UNITY, FRIENDSHIP, LEADERSHIP, AND SERVICE.
