Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity comes to Huntingdon

This fall Huntingdon College welcomes the newest member of Greek Life, Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity.
Lambda Chi Alpha was founded in 1909 at Boston University in order to facilitate the association of college students of good moral character. The fraternity's founding fathers hoped to foster a highly moral and spiritual standard of life based on Christian ideals by promoting friendship, intellectual excellence and the greatest advantages in college life. Today, Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., is one of the largest men’s general fraternities in North America with more than 280,000 initiated members, and is the first International fraternity to eliminate pledging in the early 1970s. It remains a leader in the fight against hazing, alcohol abuse, drugs, and other challenges facing today’s college students by focusing on its “Core Values” and teachings: shaping who its members are, what they know, and what they can do. By offering an experience that focuses on developing the maturity of today’s college man, it is the vision of Lambda Chi Alpha to extend itself beyond the traditional social fraternity in practice and principle. On a campus like Huntingdon where everything from curriculum to choir is centered around growth in wisdom and service in faith, Lambda Chi Alpha will surely find its place among the Greek community.
