The mission of Lambda Chi Alpha is to offer the best fraternal experience, focusing on personal character development through leadership, scholarship, community service, and positive social experiences. Lambda Chi Alpha is more than an organization to belong to. LCA is a unique opportunity to create and build lifelong friendships and brotherhood. It is a great feeling to walk across campus knowing that there are other men who have agreed to be there when you need them most. Brotherhood is the heart and soul of Lambda Chi Alpha.
When you need someone to talk to, you will always find a brother who is genuinely interested and who really cares about what happens to you. You will find a brother who understands that you are only human and are seeking to improve yourself in many ways. You will find a brother who offers to help before you have a chance to ask. Deciding to become a member of Lambda Chi Alpha has the possibility to change your life by molding you into a man of integrity and honor.
LCA holds a variety of events that benefit their Feeding America philanthropy. Some of these events include their Teeter-Totter-A-Thon, Pumpkin Smash, and Kick Away Hunger kickball tournament. LCA also holds their annual White Rose Formal in the spring. In 2017, LCA was awarded the Highest Fall 2016 Fraternity Chapter GPA Award. Additionally, an alumnus of LCA was awarded the Alumni Volunteer of the Year Award.
One of the mottos that LCA strives to conduct their fraternity by is the Greek motto “Vir Quisque Vir” or “every man a man.” Lambda Chi Alpha was the first fraternity to abolish pledges when associate membership replaced pledging in 1972. Since that time, associate members have had full and equal rights in the chapter, including voting privileges and the ability to hold office, attend all meetings and functions, and wear the letters and regalia of the Fraternity. Associate members are expected to have a minimum GPA of a 2.5 to be initiated.
