Sitting at the corner of Broadway and West Lindburg, the newly built chapter house of Lambda Chi Alpha stands as a testament to the lifelong membership and ideals of the fraternity. The chapter house was recently built by alumni to house the newly re-established chapter.
Lambda Chi Alpha strives to prepare and encourage collegiate men of good character, high ethics, and noble ideals to contribute positively to the world in which they live. In order to achieve this aim the men of Lambda Chi Alpha focus on personal character development through leadership, scholarship, community service and positive social experiences.
Lambda Chi Alpha is one of the largest men’s general fraternities in North America with chapters at more than 300 universities. At Boston University in Boston, Massachusetts on November 2, 1909. The Fraternity was founded with the expressed objective purpose of bringing about the association together of college students of good moral character, to establish brotherly love, mutual aid, close personal connection between alumni and undergraduates as well as testing each with courage, self-control, obedience, democracy and courtesy toward all with whom they may come in contact. The Lambda Chi Zeta chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha was founded in 1969. Throughout the 1970’s, 1980’s and early 1990’s the chapter was consistently recognized both locally and nationally for academic excellence and philanthropy. In the spring of 2006, the chapter died down to one active member and one year later, the chapter is growing rapidly with twenty-two men.
The North American Food Drive is Lambda Chi Alpha’s nationally sponsored philanthropy. It started as a Pantry Raid at Lambda Chi Alpha in Millsaps College and became an international event that has raised over 21.3 million pounds of food for the hungry.
