Honoring academic excellence in a student's first year.
Alpha Lambda Delta is one of the oldest and most prestigious honor societies in our nation, recognizing the brightest students in their first academic year of college. There are more than 225 Alpha Lambda Delta chapters nationwide and we are proud to be recognized at the University of Memphis. Our purpose is to encourage superior academic achievement, promote intelligent living and a high standard of learning, and assist students in recognizing and developing meaningful goals in society. If you have been invited to join, go ahead and toot your own horn. Take a bow. It is an exclusive accomplishment — achieved by only the top 20% of your class.
Yes, it's a feather in your cap, but what else does becoming a member mean? It is your first step towards big-time honors and awards during college. Think of it like a spotlight suddenly shining on you and your studies here at UofM. Big things are expected from you and an Alpha Lambda Delta membership clearly positions you as a student to watch!
Other membership benefits include: Forming lifelong friendships with other students who share your passion for academic excellence; lifetime membership; local and national awards; over $100,000 in available scholarships; certificate of membership; lapel pin or charm; and an annual national magazine subscription.
