The Delta Lambda Chapter of Phi Gamma Nu Professional Business Fraternity is one of three business fraternities at the University of Pennsylvania. Phi Gamma Nu values professionalism, brotherhood, and diversity. Our driven and dedicated group of brothers represent all four of Penn's schools and come from all around the world, with a common interest in business and a goal of developing professionalism both individually and within the Penn community.
Every year, we host a variety of professional events both independently and in conjunction with other organizations. Our reach extends beyond just business; we participate in several philanthropy events and social gatherings. Brothers of PGN are extremely active both within and beyond the fraternity. We engage in diverse interests and are leaders of other organizations on campus. We encourage brothers to pursue their passions and in turn, truly value and benefit from the different contributions of our members.
Since our inauguration, we have followed the Governing Principles of the National Chapter. As a chapter of the Phi Gamma Nu National Fraternity, we embrace the personality and spirit of its founding members. At the University of Pennsylvania, we are unique in having created an organization open to all. We believe that opportunities for the study of business should be provided to every individual, regardless of social or academic background.
We were founded in September 2003 by the Founding Five: Shachar Golan, Ian Lin, Kelsey Schwenk, Kathy Cernocky, and Sara Haq. The Chapter was officially initiated by the National Office on December 7, 2003. Since then, the Delta Lambda Chapter has grown to become a thriving organization that has changed the nature of professional fraternities at the University of Pennsylvania. Through the initiatives of Professionalism, Philanthropy, and Community, Phi Gamma Nu has established a tradition of excellence.
