We welcome your submissions. Please take a moment to review the type of content we’re seeking. Then click on the link below to submit your article idea. We appreciate your contributions to Lambda Chi Alpha.
What We Need
Chapter News: This is our most read section. We are looking for news (and photos, 300 dpi preferred) about chapter awards, fundraisers, community service events, and member accomplishments (varsity athlete, student government, etc.). If you are an alumnus and your chapter hasn’t submitted news in a while, contact them, and encourage them to send updates for the Cross & Crescent. It’s important to remember that the General Fraternity cannot post anything about a chapter if we don’t receive updates.
Alumni News and Reports of Death: We also publish alumni news (and photos, 300 dpi preferred) and reports of death. Alumni news includes professional accomplishments, promotions, volunteer efforts, awards, and any participation in any Lambda Chi events or activities. For reports of death, please include a link to an online obituary.
Feature Stories: Each month, we publish at least two 1,500-word stories about prominent or interesting alumni (and sometimes about undergraduates, too). We need your help identifying members at the very top of their chosen career, contacting them, and writing their stories for upcoming issues.
What We Do Not Publish
Personal News: Family news like weddings, births, graduations, and the like are not accepted. (Reports of death are accepted.)
When We Need It
Being a monthly publication, our official deadline for content is the 25th of the month. Sometimes, we will accept content submitted after the deadline. And sometimes, when we have too much content, we hold content for the next issue. Regardless, please send us your content at any time and we will consider it for the next available issue.
You are also promising us that you wrote the content or took the photograph yourself, and agree that Lambda Chi Alpha may freely alter and publish your submitted content as its own. Though your content becomes Lambda Chi Alpha property, we work hard to give credit where it is due.
How to Submit Content
You can log into MyLCA and click the link to submit chapter/alumni news. If you are the High Gamma, you can log into Officer Portal to submit content as well.

Please provide as much information about each person or chapter you mention; noting a full name, school of initiation, and graduation year. For obituaries, please include their date of death.
