Founding Experience

New Chapter

You get to be an entrepreneur.

It takes personal courage to step out of the established and start something new; by joining a colony, you are doing just that! Founding fathers dare to do the hard work of establishing the foundation of a new fraternity. It is hard work and at times the colony may even struggle, but through hard work and commitment you have the opportunity to create a long-lasting legacy that sets the standards for what it means to be a member of Lambda Chi Alpha; thousands of men are going to be following your example.

You have committed to something that is bigger than yourself.

From the day you sign your bid to the day you die, you will be representing Lambda Chi Alpha. You have committed yourself to an international organization and to living its values each day. Lambda Chi Alpha’s Seven Core Values are Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Service & Stewardship, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage. In living these values and committing to this brotherhood you have an opportunity to contribute to the community, enhance your leadership skills, form lifelong friendships, and discover a brotherhood that has been changing lives for over 100 years.

You have joined a network of more than 300,000 men.

Joining Lambda Chi Alpha opens you to a vast network of alumni brothers who are leaders in their communities, professions, and on their campuses. This network presents you with mentors, colleagues, and friends. The men you meet on your Lambda Chi Alpha journey will be some of the best in your life.
