For Parents
We realize that as a parent, you have sent your son to college to get ahead in life. And by joining Lambda Chi Alpha, we believe that he will benefit from his college experience even further. Here's why:

For starters, we think that if your son had to join a fraternity, Lambda Chi Alpha would be his best choice. Founded less than 10 years ago, we have made some impressive accomplishments.

You can start by taking a look at some of the many awards we have earned. Or, perhaps, you'd be impressed to learn that two of our members have been appointed to serve on a national undergraduate boards. One of our members even worked on Lambda Chi Alpha's national staff for five years.

We think that this shows how highly our national office thinks of our chapter. They even presented us with their highest award in 1999, the Grand High Alpha award.

On a more local level, our chapter continues to perform well in many areas of operations, which you can see from our comparison chart. You'll likely appreciate that our chapter's average GPA is consistently higher than the All Men's Average. Meaning that your son has a better chance of earning a higher GPA by joining our chapter than if he decided to not join at all.

The best part about having your son join Lambda Chi Alpha is that he will gain confidence and leadership skills that will help him for years to come. In addition to encouraging your son to become active in extracurricular activities on campus, there are plenty of opportunities for him to become involved within our chapter. We have more than a dozen elected positions with yet another dozen committees that require chairmen.

If you think about it, a fraternity is really a small nonprofit organization that is managed by 19-year-olds.

Since 1909, Lambda Chi Alpha has had many great leaders and successful individuals emerge from its ranks. Here is just a brief list of some of our most notable alumni:

This really is just a brief list as we are omitting a half dozen state supreme court justices, a dozen Fortune 500 CEOs, a handful of Congressmen and Senators, and a long history of professional athletes.

In summary, Lambda Chi Alpha is a very successful fraternity (the third largest of more than 60 national fraternities) that produces many members who become successful members of society. We hope that you son will become a dynamic part of our organization and benefits from his membership. Should you have any further questions, please feel free to contact our chapter officers or alumni volunteers directly.
