Gamma Lambda Rho

Mission and Purpose

Gamma Lambda Rho Sorority was founded during the 1972-1973 academic school year, making us the oldest sorority at Iona College. This rich tradition has given us a foundation on which to expand and thrive in the Iona Community. Gamma is a dedicated group of diverse women who form a strong sisterhood. Gamma values involvement on campus and in the community while providing a home away from home for its sisters. Although Gamma is the oldest sorority on campus we are young with potential and not afraid to make changes or take risks. These unique young women pride themselves on being smart, fun, and philanthropic leaders who know they can count on each other.


Every Monday at 10 p.m. in the McGrath Room. Meetings are closed. Any open meetings will be advertised around campus.
