The Lambda Phi Epsilon Alumni Association is a national organization and network formed to promote and coordinate our fraternity’s alumni activities and communications. At the local level, the Alumni Association’s duty is to continue to uphold the fine traditions and ideals of our brotherhood. They endeavor to assist and support both our active members and our respective communities in whatever capacity deemed necessary or applicable. With each new infusion of graduating brothers into our network, the Alumni Association becomes larger and stronger. The Alumni Association also rewards scholarships to undergraduate members who epitomize the ideals of Lambda Phi Epsilon. The Foundation also plays a role in organizing professional development workshops to connect active undergraduates with distinguished alumni in their industry of choice.

MR. JEREMY VALDEZ

Profile

Alias: #1, “GenQ”
Birthday: March 23, 1993
Ethnicity: Filipino
Hometown: Renton, WA
Major: Civil Engineering

Narrative

A Brotherhood is a path that a group takes, and through this path they go through obstacles together, but as a team they take care of each other and go through this experience together to accomplish their goal. Once the journey ends, and the fellowship is created, the Brotherhood does not cease. It continues to grow with more experiences and the Brotherhood can become even stronger. During the intake process, our brotherhood has been tested by the hardships we endured, and by going through it and helping each other out, I was able to open my eyes and see that I want to continue to help my brothers. We operate as a unit, and when one fails, we all fail. With this concept we learned to work together, and we learned a lot about each other along the way. A Brotherhood is a lifetime commitment and shouldn’t be taken very lightly. Being a Lambda is not only a privilege, it’s a lifetime commitment to living the ideals of the fraternity.

MR. GABRIEL DUMBRIQUE

Profile

Alias: #2, “Kuriboh”
Birthday: June 15, 1993
Ethnicity: Filipino
Hometown: Long Beach, CA
Major: Psychology

Narrative

Everyone may have a different explanation for what the brotherhood may be. Each variation is no more significant than another one. I believe what makes a true brotherhood meaningful is the foundation on which its members base their values upon. It is the collective experiences shared among that group that help determine whether or not they are actually growing as a band of brothers and not just any other group of guys. There are times during the day when I randomly start feeling angst and all I am able to think about is the next time I get to be in the presence of my brothers. I believe that this feeling is a big indicator that I am literally a part of a true brotherhood. There are, of course, many other ways that I believe exemplify a true brotherhood. Ultimately, to me, brotherhood means that I will stand and fight wholeheartedly alongside my brothers against any force that opposes any of us and I will never back down and quit on them as long as I am able to breathe.

MR. DAVID SHARKEY

Profile

Alias: #3, “Young Holmes”
Birthday: March 29, 1991
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Hometown: Battle Ground, WA
Major: Criminal Justice

Narrative

As brothers, we function as a unit and go through all the tough and enjoyable times together. We know each other’s strengths and weaknesses and do whatever we can to take care of one another. A brotherhood is a bond that few people get to share and experience. True brotherhood is internal and can overcome any deep emotional hardship. No matter the race or ethnicity, we all come together as a unit and achieve what we all strive for the most. Brothers should be able to understand one another’s way of life. Everyone is treated equal and not blinded by pride or our own beliefs and understandings. We develop each person to their fullest potential and to encourage personal growth. As each day passes, the love for each other grows stronger every day. Brotherhood is like a second family that you learn to cherish every moment you have together and you will always have that bond until the day you die and beyond.

MR. TYLER CRUZ

Profile

Alias: #4, “Tysseus”
Birthday: January 5, 1994
Ethnicity: Marshallese, Guamanian, Black
Hometown: Upper Marlboro, MD
Major: Computer Science

Narrative

Brotherhood is a special bond. This is a bond that you share with a select few people. Everyone in this brotherhood has these bonds with each other that outsiders may not understand. These bonds allow you to instill faith in and depend on your brothers in your time of need. Brotherhood comes with helping a brother out if they need you, no matter the circumstances. If they’re not there for you physically, they’ll surely be there for you in spirit. Brotherhood isn’t all about the good times in my opinion. It is also about the struggle. The struggle is real. During my pledge process, my brotherhood consisted of Jeremy, G, David, Adrian, Zhi, Ronald, Sebatian, Randy, and MJ. These are my brothers outside of my biological blood. We’ll cry, sweat, and bleed with each other throughout the years together, as we begin a new journey at Washington State University. We’ll have each other’s backs through thick and thin because we’re brothers, while making memories that’ll last a lifetime.

5

MR. ADRIAN WONG

Profile

Alias: #5, “Charlie”
Birthday: March 8, 1992
Ethnicity: Chinese, Vietnamese
Hometown: Kent, WA
Major: Social Work

Narrative

Loyalty is a value that our Interest Group has developed first in terms of brotherhood. We have developed a sense of loyalty where it did not matter what any one of us was going through—we knew that there would always be a brother that would be there for us and have our back no matter what the circumstances. Though we were forced to put that blind faith into each other, it really taught us a small but important sample of what it meant to be able to support and trust each other. Now that faith has increased exponentially. Going through all these experiences with everyone in the group has given me a very different perspective on what brotherhood means to me. Every person has their own definition of brotherhood, but my definition has been shaped by this process and all the things I have done during it. With that said, brotherhood to me means everything: all the collective experiences shared during this process and the personal hurdles I have overcome alongside my brothers.

* MR. ZHI HU

Profile

Alias: #6, “Hai-dini”
Birthday: June 16, 1992
Ethnicity: Chinese
Hometown: Battle Ground, WA
Major: Accounting

Narrative

As brothers, we are never stronger more than when we are tested. Of course, there are always the good times and the bad with any family, but during our chartering process, we have learned how to function as a unit as we experienced overcoming some of the most challenging of obstacles. True brotherhood is not from the outside of physical appearances. It is internal and very deep and emotional. I believe that brotherhood transcends friendship. Lambda Phi Epsilon has taught me that this brotherhood can be leveraged as a platform to work towards a common goal. Brothers are there as someone to rely on and depend and vice versa. I have learned to put the interests of my brothers ahead of myself. Our brotherhood is like a glass that is half full and half empty: we take the initiative to ask each other how we can fill their glass full up to the rim. As each day passes, the camaraderie I have for all of my brothers deepen with love and respect.

MR. RONALD RAMONES

Profile

Alias: #7, “Hulky Kong”
Birthday: January 20, 1994
Ethnicity: Filipino
Hometown: Waianae, HI
Major: Mechanical Engineering

Narrative

Brotherhood to me is an enduring relationship because it demands the most dedication out of a person. Brotherhood is that instant connection gained amongst each other showing that everyone loves and cares about each other like how brothers should be. For my class, even though starting out as strangers, I know now that we are forever linked as brothers. The die hard loyalty we established as charters throughout the new member education journey was the reward I discovered. I know that with brothers, I will have the connections and the support for life. With my brothers at my side, I will be able to depend on them when I need them the most and those will be the men that I will share the important milestones of my life. I have come to learn that pain is temporary; brotherhood is eternal. The meaning of brotherhood is much more than just someone to bond with, it is someone who you know will be there for you for the rest of your life.

MR. SEBATIAN KALILIKANE

Profile

Alias: #8, “MaFiosO”
Birthday: July 17, 1994
Ethnicity: Hawaiian, Thai, Filipino
Hometown: Issaquah, WA
Major: Electrical Engineering

Narrative

I have journeyed brotherhood through three steps: The Search, The Abyss, and The Light. Beginning with The Search, each individual enters the group as strangers. Shortly after the formation of our Interest Group, we began exploring why we were doing what we were doing. Continuing with The Abyss, this is where all of the men in our group had become comfortable of each other’s presence, and soon we had stepped through the threshold, from being just strangers, to acquaintances working toward a common goal. It was here where I had the opportunity to find out exactly what each person was like, how they acted, and where they came from. Lastly, The Light. It was here where the beginnings of true brotherhood had been conceived. It was here where all of our views and morals were tested, and only together would we be able to achieve anything greater than if we were on our own. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us. One thing is for sure, the best is yet to come.

MR. RANDY CHO

Profile

Alias: #9, “Lil Kim”
Birthday: April 17, 1994
Ethnicity: Korean
Hometown: Shoreline, WA
Major: Biology

Narrative

The concept of brotherhood is constantly thrown around in the common experience of close friends, but there is much more to it, and in reality, it is likely to find that only a small percentage of people get to experience the incredible values and bonds of true brotherhood. To me, this term should not be spoken only, but rather must be lived. I used to be one of these people that abused the term, but not because I intentionally wanted to throw around the term to my friends like it was nothing, but because I actually did not know any better; I never really had the chance to learn what brotherhood was all about because I had yet to go through any experiences that would develop such a relationship and create this once in a lifetime bond. Even if at first we fail, triumph is inevitable when we can count on our brothers and have entire faith in placing our well-being in their hands without a doubt. I am grateful to have found eternal brotherhood in Lambda Phi Epsilon.

MR. MICHAEL JACKSON

Profile

Alias: #10, “Boji Bryant”
Birthday: February 7, 1992
Ethnicity: Caucasian, Black, Chinese
Hometown: Las Vegas, NV
Major: Economics

Narrative

I look at my brothers as competition: teachers and students who I can learn something from, teach something to, or just strive to be better than in life. A brotherhood means having a group to fall back on when you’re at your lowest point, too. It’s a cold world out there and everyone needs someone to lean on at some point. Balancing the chartering process, college coursework, and part-time work, my brothers kept me sane since they were going through the same experience. They gave me an outlet to vent about my problems or just kick it so I felt like I had a social life. Brotherhood is a feeling of belonging that you feel when you have the worst day of your life but you’re laughing 10 minutes later because your brothers are there for you. Or at your wedding day when one of your brothers decides to give a toast and brings up the time you got so drunk you wet the bed that night. Companions for life, I know my brothers are still here to help me out for anything.

MR. ANDREW CRISTIANI

Profile

Alias: #11, “Green Lantern”
Birthday: April 15, 1993
Ethnicity: Filipino
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
Major: Landscape Architecture

Narrative

You know the feeling when you arrive on campus and say, “This place is my home?” Brotherhood is the exact same thing. Arriving into an environment where you immediately click is one of the best feelings a human can experience. Experiencing this feeling shows that you belong there with the environment and the people. The individuals of the group hold different characteristics, but unite as one to form an overwhelming amount of personality, experience and intelligence. My purpose of joining this eternal brotherhood is to expand my network and to have a closer relationship with the Wazzu family. I have experienced a number of life changing actions and thoughts and for that, I am very grateful. Everything has a beginning, middle and an end; except for brotherhoods. Brotherhoods do not hold an ending. Our brotherhood evinces an eternal connection once the bond is made. I am proud to be in the unbreakable brotherhood of Lambda Phi Epsilon.

MR. JACE GOULART

Profile

Alias: #12, “BAzhookah”
Birthday: December 20, 1987
Ethnicity: Korean
Hometown: Spokane, WA
Major: Biology/Teaching

Narrative

Throughout this process I have been faced with defining what brotherhood means to me. In order to become a dependable brother, you need to have a strong sense of yourself. You need to believe in yourself before others will. Building upon your beliefs and creating a strong sense of identity is crucial. Personal conviction cannot be faked. You cannot put up a façade and expect people to believe in you if you do not believe in yourself first. In brotherhood, everyone represents a cog in the machine. If one link is broken or weak, then the rest of the group cannot properly function. Being able to trust each other fully is the core element of a successful society. Only when a puzzle is put together can you see the entire picture as a whole. If one piece is missing then the picture is lost. We are not alone anymore and we will always have each other to fall back on when life presents us with unthinkable trials that we don’t expect.

MR. DEREK GASPAR

Profile

Alias: #13, “Squishy”
Birthday: August 8, 1994
Ethnicity: Filipino
Hometown: Kapolei, HI
Major: Zoology

Narrative

Brotherhood is a bond that is not easily made, it is earned through trials and overcoming challenges with each other. I understand this definition with the men who stand beside me, shoulder to shoulder, as we all go through the intake process together and become better individuals from it. A bond this strong is something that I have never experienced myself before. I have experienced friendship and camaraderie in the past, but none that is this strong. Through new member education, I have formed strong bonds with my brothers as we overcome challenges together and learn to trust one another in any situation, not just within the process itself. Though brotherhood can be defined in many ways, the concept is still the same. Without trust, brotherhood cannot exist. Very few things in our lives last forever, but the bonds of brotherhood within Lambda Phi Epsilon will always be there and will never fade away.

MR. ANTHONY VUONG

Profile

Alias: #14, “T.K.Dragon”
Birthday: October 20, 1993
Ethnicity: Chinese
Hometown: Oakland, CA
Major: Business

Narrative

I spent a good year thinking about whether to join Lambda Phi Epsilon. I ignored all of the cons that are stereotypically said about fraternities because I was tired of hearing the hasty generalizations. I had to experience Greek life for myself, so I took the dive into the unknown and have not since regretted it. Through my intake process, I’ve come to learn that brotherhood can build a solid foundation of courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit. I learned how to obtain enduring respect for myself and others out of politeness and humility; maintain a strict ethical code of honesty and loyalty; acquire the skills of dedication to persist in challenging times in spite of opposition or discouragement; demonstrate patience and discipline to exert my will power over my emotions and impulses; and show courage by having the right attitude in maintaining inner strength regardless of winning or losing. Lambda Phi Epsilon is now a brotherhood I can call my own.

MR. ALEX SONG

Profile

Alias: #15, “The Transporter”
Birthday: March 30, 1986
Ethnicity: Korean
Hometown: Seattle, WA
Major: Accounting, MIS

Narrative

Before the start of my intake process with Lambda Phi Epsilon Fraternity, I didn’t think much about the concept of brotherhood. I am an only child with no brothers, nor any siblings. During new member education, my definition of brotherhood has been enhanced. I now have 6 pledge brothers who I have spent a lot of time with. We’ve come to rely on each other for support throughout process and trust each other with our most intimate thoughts. Starting out as complete strangers, I’ve learned about my brothers’ history, their perspectives, and even their quirky mannerisms. We have quickly made strides towards working as a functional unit, utilizing the advantages that one brother has and filling in for the shortfalls of another. This is what a brotherhood should be like—not just one individual I can trust implicitly, but several individuals that I can trust and who can function as one to help achieve our goals.

MR. PAOLO DE GUZMAN

Profile

Alias: #16, “Sprinter Sensei”
Birthday: January 19 1993
Ethnicity: Filipino
Hometown: Silverdale, WA
Major: Kinesiology, Sports Management

Narrative

Why did I decide to get into this brotherhood? This is because I saw Lambda Phi Epsilon Fraternity as a unique opportunity to begin a new chapter of my life. I knew I could look back on the experience and say it had made a positive impact. The connections I have already made throughout Lambdas, such as the invaluable networking among numerous actives and alumni throughout the region and the world, as well as the leadership skills and professional development are undoubtedly beneficial for my future. Throughout the long and enduring new member education process, even though there had been bumps into the wall and struggles along the way, the brotherhood within my class was never shattered. Instead, it grew stronger. The process was long and not meant to be easy. Memories have been created with each pledge brother and bonds have been cemented among our class. I am grateful for being able to start and finish this process with them and no one else.

MR. GARVIN PRICE

Profile

Alias: #17, “Ravengerz”
Birthday: December 4, 1994
Ethnicity: Chinese, Caucasian
Hometown: Shanghai, China
Major: Chinese, MIS

Narrative

Before I joined Lambda Phi Epsilon, brotherhood was just another word in the dictionary. My pledge brothers and I started out as complete strangers, but through our brotherhood events and shared experiences from our intake process, we grew as one class—united. We do not throw each other under the bus because as brothers, we look out for each other. Perhaps one of the greatest things about brotherhood is that it comes naturally. We begin to offer to help pay for each other’s mistakes; we begin to lean on each other without every having to question our loyalties. While experiences help shape and build stronger bonds between brothers, the significance each one of my pledge brother’s hold in my life cannot change. That is why I believe most people may never have a chance to experience a bond as stronger as one in a brotherhood. Who knows where we will all be in ten years? Yet, one thing is for certain: I know I will still be in contact with my pledge brothers.

MR. JEREMY GARCIA

Alias: #18, “Velvet J Sweettooth”
Birthday: February, 28 1994
Ethnicity: Filipino
Hometown: Kent, WA
Major: Pre-Pharmacy

Narrative

I went through many obstacles in my life, but there are some people who were given the opportunity struggles with and experience situations with them that you never even expected. I was luckily one of them. People within your brotherhood understand your ins and outs. I never understood brotherhood fully and did not care for brotherhood until I joined Lambdas. Brotherhood is more than just simply friendship. They are ones who you can see at your wedding and graduation. You can clearly tell the difference between when I am with my brothers and when I am with my friends that I made throughout the school year. I have created memories with my brothers and it continues to become more memories. I have told them stories that I have never told anyone before. It is simply amazing how much this brotherhood has been changing me.

MR. CAMERON SASAKI

Profile

Alias: #19, “Samurai Kilauea”
Birthday: February 11 1995
Ethnicity: Japanese, Hawaiian
Hometown: Honolulu, Hawaii
Major: Architecture

Narrative

Life can be unpredictable and unfair, often throwing challenges at us which we have no clue how to solve. Whether it is school, people, or sports people never know what to expect. When you’re born into a family you don’t get to choose who you end up with, and in a brotherhood you may not all get along. Even though there may be times of quarrel and disagreement, the trials and tribulations that brothers go through is what keeps them together in a brotherhood. Brothers know that the word brotherhood does not simply mean people sharing common interest, or being similar to one another. They know the word to mean something deeper, not just a simple definition, but a collection of memories, the blood sweat and tears shed together. Words can be simply defined by words, but some require the time invested to truly understand the meaning of the word to its fullest. I personally may not have understood the word brotherhood to its true definition, but I am always learning and gaining new understandings to what it means to be in a brotherhood.

MR. EDDIE XU

Alias: #20, “T.K.D.Luffy”
Birthday: July 22, 1993
Ethnicity: Chinese
Hometown: Qingdao, China
Major: Hospitality Business Management

Narrative

The definition of the word brotherhood is totally different with the word friendship. I can consider everyone as my friend, but I will not calling them as my brother. For me personally, the concept of brother is whether you are in adverse situation or you are successfully they always there for you and got your back. The premise of a brother is that people must go through difficulties with you and during the process we built up a trust with each other. As a brother for each other, I will always try my best to help them. Every time you find something fun or something happy, you want to share with them; or sometimes I face difficult challenges, I will be looking forward to their advice and suggestions. If we take situations as a war, I will never win it by myself. It is all about how much you care about your brothers and how much you trust your brothers. I feel like I can do anything with my brothers. Beta class is strong like no other.
