These twelve founding sisters first existed as the sorority interest group, KPDL, which stood for Knowledge, Perseverance, Diversity, and Legacy. After six enduring years, KPDL’s hard work and determination became a reality as they brought on California State University, San Marcos’ first Asian-Interest Sorority. This establishment of aKDPhi’s 50th chapter is devoted to embodying the principles of sisterhood, leadership, scholarship, service, and Asian American awareness throughout the Greek system and the University as a whole, while aspiring to achieve meaningful college experiences and eternal friendship through the everlasting bonds of sisterhood.

alpha Kappa Delta Phi was established at the University of California at Berkeley in the fall of 1989, and recognized by the College Panhellenic Association on February 7, 1990. The fourteen founding sisters: Betty Chu, Karin Co, Susan Kim, Nancy Lee, Sherri Leung, Annie Loo, Belinda Ma, Anita Ng, Serene Ngin, Fannie Pon, Josie Sun, Daisy Wu, Jill Yoshimura, and Reina Yuan, dedicated themselves to establishing a strong and lasting organization, which would provide Asian American women the opportunity to participate in the Greek system. Soon after being recognized by the College Panhellenic Association, the founding sisters brought together a diverse group of women who shared with them the goals of sisterhood, scholarship, and leadership. These ideals were to later set the foundation for alpha Kappa Delta Phi's purpose.
