About Us

We are Lambda Kappa Sigma, Alpha Pi Chapter located at St. John’s University in Jamaica, New York.

The mission of Lambda Kappa Sigma is to provide lifelong opportunities for women in pharmacy through professional excellence and personal growth.

Lambda Kappa Sigma is an international, professional pharmacy fraternity that incorporates undergraduate and graduate pharmacy students and practicing pharmacists. Since its establishment in 1913 at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy, LKS has grown to over 22,000 members with 49 collegiate chapters and 38 alumni chapters internationally.

Alpha Pi Chapter was founded on May 6th, 1961! It was the 38th collegiate chapter. It was originally formed as an organization in 1948 and called Lambda Pi with the purpose to nationally join LKS. Fifteen women became charter members.
