What is Alpha Lambda Delta?

Hello Vikings! This Friday, February 24th, first years will be inducted into Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society! It seems like just yesterday I was inducted into the society, and there are so many opportunities that await you!

Becoming a member of Alpha Lambda Delta means you become a part of a national society of students who have achieved academic success their freshman year of college! Alpha Lambda Delta began as a women’s society in 1924, and was made coeducational in 1976.

The charter of the first Alpha Lambda Delta chapter at the University of Illinois, 1924

Alpha Lambda Delta has since initiated over one million students and have awarded members with millions of dollars worth of scholarships.

“The mission of Alpha Lambda Delta is to encourage superior academic achievement among students in their first year in institutions of higher education, to promote intelligent living and a continued high standard of learning, and to assist students in recognizing and developing meaningful goals for their roles in society.” (www.nationalald.org)

Once initiated, being a part of an honor society is a great resume-builder for graduate schools as well as future employers! Being in ALD gives you an opportunity to be a part of the community, and help others through community service.

ALD gives out more than $207,000 worth of scholarships every year, and many students have the opportunity to study abroad through these fellowships! Through Alpha Lambda Delta, you can develop leadership skills, increase your academic success, and find common ground with the rest of your “ALD family”!

We cannot wait to welcome you to our ALD family Friday night! This is just the beginning of what’s sure to be lifelong academic success!
