"Lambda Tau Omega Sorority, Inc. (ΛΤΩ) is a non-profit, Greek-letter organization that was founded on the principles of womyn empowerment, multiculturalism, and commitment to service. In Spring 1989, three determined womyn, Serafina Agnello, Renee P. Hobson and Iris V. Cruz, decided to go on the journey in search of a promising sisterhood. They knew of the need for such organization on the NJIT campus, where womyn were scarce in population. Inclusively, at the time, there was not a sorority on campus they felt catered to the needs of womyn from diverse backgrounds. On April 6, 1989, these three womyn established Trilogy Gamma Chapter at New Jersey Institute of Technology. Later in the years, Trilogy Gamma Chapter became the first metro-chapter of Lambda Tau Omega Sorority, Inc., expanding to Rutgers University-Newark, where the existence on both campuses have achieved nothing less than Excellence through Unity, Knowledge and Dedication in all their endeavors."
