  • Introducing LCA:Made

    social-master
    Lambda Chi Alpha would like to introduce its newest campaign, LCA:Made. This new initiative puts the spotlight on members of our brotherhood that have been forged in Lambda Chi Alpha and came out as leaders, innovators, survivors, difference makers and vanguards. For the first time, the fraternity will place a priority on telling stories in a visually compelling manner. Capturing a firsthand look and feel of our brother’s accomplishments and journeys in a more captivating way than traditional print and photos. LjackhcCA:Made will showcase tangible examples of the fraternity’s core values and illustrate that our men “practice what they preach.” To begin, we feature Jack Hesser of Ball State. Through his sense of duty, Hesser propelled himself into the positions of High Alpha and SGA President. “When you have a sense of duty for an organization or a cause it really reflects on your passion for it.” You can find more of from his story here. But this is only a small first step; brothers across the country just like Jack have stories to tell and a light to shine on just what type of men make up Lambda Chi Alpha. So let us pay you a visit. Send us your candidates and stories to communications@lambdachi.org with the subject line, “LCA:Made” and we’ll do the rest. Share-story
  • The Zeta-Upsilon Story

    His3
    by Mike Raymond (Miami-OH 1967) INTRODUCTION Oxford, Ohio, located in picturesque southwest Ohio, is home to Miami University. The university was founded in 1809 by the state legislature. Miami is known as the “Mother of Fraternities.” While others may claim that title there is no doubt that Miami has a right to it. Four fraternities and one sorority originated on Miami’s campus. Beta Theta Pi was founded in 1839, Phi Delta Theta was organized in 1848, Sigma Chi in 1855, Phi Kappa Tau started in 1906, and Delta Zeta in 1902. Miami has had a long and well established fraternity system for nearly 170 years. It is among the oldest college fraternity systems in North America. THE ADANERION CLUB His2Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity came to Miami in 1950. However its roots go back to 1940 when then president of Miami, Alfred Upham, invited a group of men to form a new organization on campus. These men named their organization the Adanerion Club. The meaning of the name they gave their club is unknown though it is probably derived from “Adelpos” which is Greek for brotherhood. From the beginning the purpose of the group, as written in the club’s minutes, was “…to start an organization that upon gaining a stable membership would be qualified to receive a charter from some well-founded and nationally prominent fraternity.” Within a short time the Adanerion Club had officers, a constitution, the backing of the university administration, a fair sized membership of thirty-nine men and a house. Once the group was recognized by the university it created a ritual and designed a badge. World War II put an end to the Adanerion Club. By 1944 only five members were left in the club as the other members went off to serve in the military. In 1946 the Adanerion Club was reactivated with the return of twelve of its original members from military service. A COLONY OF LAMBDA CHI ALPHA In 1947 the group grew large enough to assume the name of Alpha Gamma Pi in preparation to petitioHis3n a national fraternity. The local fraternity became a colony of Lambda Chi Alpha due much to the efforts of a transfer member of Lambda Chi by the name of Jack Hendry. He was an enthusiastic supporter of affiliating with Lambda Chi Alpha. Jack became the colony president at the same time his wife Lorraine became the president of Alpha Omicron Pi sorority. This husband and wife team was likely the first to simultaneously hold their Greek group’s highest office. Jack later became the chapter’s High Pi and was named the “Advisor of the Year” at Miami in 1965. In 1950 the Miami Colony was installed as the Zeta-Upsilon Zeta of Lambda Chi Alpha over a three day long installation celebration. The chapter house, located at 308 North Bishop Street, was occupied in the spring of 1950. ZETA-UPSILON ZETA During its first full year as a chapter, Zeta-Upsilon began its famous “Chariot Race” as a major event of Greek Week. This event featured a handcrafted simulated chariot that was pulled by four fraternity men. The race was a single elimination series of 100 yard heats with four men pulling a sorority girl who tried to guide the chariot! There were accidents but fortunately no one was ever seriously injured. The Chariot Race lasted for fifty years as the culminating event of Greek Week. Often the outcome of this race determined the winner of the Greek Week Trophy. Huge crowds, sometimes numbering a thousand or more, attended the event at the old Miami Field. Unfortunately, Zeta-Upsilon never won its own event. His1A new house was started in 1960 at 307 North Bishop Street directly across from the old house still owned and occupied by the fraternity. The new house was completed in 1964 with a capacity of 32 Brothers. It was a unique building for Miami’s predominantly Georgian architecture. It looked more like it belonged in the Rocky Mountains as a ski lodge! This house would serve the brothers well for nearly fifty years. Over the years Zeta Upsilon has amassed a large number of awards and recognition from the General Fraternity and Miami University. Zeta-Upsilon has been recognized by the General Fraternity with three Grand High Alpha Awards. Six of Zeta-Upsilon’s members have been selected as recipients of Lambda Chi Alpha’s Order of Merit. This is among the largest group of Order of Merit recipients in a chapter to date. Brother Mike Thomas was the Duke Flad Outstanding Undergraduate Award recipient in 1989. In addition to this high honor, Mike was also chapter president and Student Body president in 1987.Tom Fritz and Mike Daughters both served on the headquarters staff of our fraternity. Jonas Dominque was the first member of Zeta-Upsilon to serve on the Grand High Zeta as a student representative in 2008. Two years later another member of Zeta-Upsilon was elected as Grand High Phi of our Fraternity. Scholarship has always been a hallmark of the chapter. Zeta-Upsilon has been recognized as the top scholastic fraternity on campus many times in its history. It has received the Phi Beta Kappa Scholarship Award and the Top Fraternity Scholars Award in the past. One of a number of successful Brothers from Zeta-Upsilon Zeta is Rich Graeter (1986) who is now the CEO of Graeter’s Ice Cream. Rich is a fourth generation owner of the business that just marked its 146th anniversary. Graeter’s Ice Cream has won many awards and much public acceptance over the years. He recently opened a new store in Oxford, much to the delight of his Lambda Chi Brothers! RECOLONIZATION After a four year hiatus, the chapter came back as a reorganized colony in 2007. After a slow start in recruiting, the chapter began a remarkable quest for excellence at Miami. During its time as a colony, Brother Sam Brown was elected president of the IFC despite the fact that the IFC’s rules did not permit a colony representative to hold an office. The group suspended its rules in order to elect this outstanding Lambda Chi. After four years of difficulty in recruitment, the chapter met all of the colonization requirements and a new Zeta-Upsilon Zeta was born. Exceptional leadership and hard work on the part of the brotherhood has resulted in a strong chapter at Miami. ZETA-UPSILON IS BACK Today Zeta-Upsilon is experiencing an upswing in its membership and operations. From eleven actives in 2008, it now boasts seventy members with formal recruitment taking place in January. The chapter has brought even more distinction upon itself with recognition in philanthropy, scholarship, brotherhood and sisterhood and community service. The Greek Affairs Office selected Zeta-Upsilon as Chapter of the Year and a past president as the Outstanding President of the Year. In 2009 Zeta-Upsilon Zeta raised 219,918 pounds of food to gain the number one spot in Lambda Chi Alpha’s North American Food Drive. In 2014, Brother Tom Newton received an appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point. Currently, the Zeta-Upsilon Zeta House Corporation and chapter officers are pursuing new housing for their members. At this time fourteen brothers are living in the Beta Theta Pi Annex building. It is likely that the former Sigma Nu house will be leased by our housing corporation for the next two or three years. Approximately 45 men can be housed in this modern facility that features the customary accommodations of a chapter house. It is in excellent condition. This move presents an exciting prospect for the future growth of the chapter. The Zeta-Upsilon Zeta Alumni Association will be sponsoring a banquet to recognize early members of the colony and the Chapter. The banquet festivities will also celebrate 65 years of Lambda Chi Alpha at Miami University. The members of Zeta-Upsilon have a lot to be proud about as they look back over their 65 years as a part of Lambda Chi Alpha. They have had a long history of success mixed with some disappointments as a Chapter. Zeta-Upsilon Zeta has learned from its past and is poised now for a bright future.
  • Heritage Night

    LBZ2
    by Kyle Jones (Montevallo) Regional and local chapter traditions across Lambda Chi Alpha’s many zetas can be a historic and significant part of the chapter’s history and identity. These unique customs, when done correctly and with good reason, have a way of strengthening the local brotherhood and bridging generational gaps and experiences. The University of Delaware Lambda-Beta Zeta’s “Heritage Night” does just that. Incorporated into their formal recruitment, the chapter reaches out to over 45 years of alumni members to join them in meeting current active members and most importantly, potential new members.LBZ1 Beginning in 2010, the small and struggling chapter looked for ways to set themselves apart and achieve a new level of success. With less than 30 active members, they were a third of the size of the largest fraternities on campus. Those other organizations had a seemingly huge competitive advantage over Lambda-Beta Zeta in recruiting, such as, they could sell the larger brotherhood, larger budget for programming and the ability to mix with sororities who were typically 250 members. Having only initiated five new members the following spring, something different and within the chapter’s means had to be done. Noticing this, former High Pi and current associate director of alumni involvement, George Taylor, contacted alumni member Lyman Chen, a former alumni chairman during his active days with the chapter. “I knew we could drastically improve on this,” said Chen. “Analyzing our strengths, I realized that most of the fraternities on campus had been kicked off from one time to another and brought back in different incarnations. Most of the fraternities were five years old at the most. Although we had very tough times and had even gotten down to single digits at one point. We had survived continuously for 45 years with about 800 alumni coming through our bond, many local and quite successful. This was our competitive advantage. Especially considering that in 2010, we were in the very heart of the economic recession and getting employment after graduation was especially a dire proposition.” LBZ2After reaching out to their network of alumni brothers, “Heritage Night” was born. Uniting the active and alumni resources yielded an associate class three times the size of the prior semester, and the tradition continuing on for the next ten semesters. Current High Rho of Lambda-Beta Chris Mule spoke on the latest Heritage Night and the event’s initial impact on his joining. “We had about 30 in attendance,” said Mule. “There has been a lot of excitement with our 50th anniversary coming up and the opportunity for actives and potential new members to meet alumni from the past 50 years made it a really fantastic event.” “The reason why I joined about two and a half years ago was because of this event. You expect to talk to just a few actives, but you meet people who are working in the real world. It really brings it close to home and shows how deep and strong our brotherhood of Lambda Chi Alpha is,” he added. Mule also noted the event puts the aspect of brotherhood in perspective for potential new members, where other groups could only talk about brotherhood and a lifetime bond, the Lambda-Beta Zeta are able to showcase that in the flesh. “One thing Lambda Chi has always been great at is having high ideals and putting things on paper for what we strive for. Heritage Night takes those words off the paper and gives an example. It shows an 18 year old man what we believe, right there in person,” added Chen. LBZ3“There’s guys 45 or 65 years old at the event, and they don’t have to be there. It takes an effort that they want to come, not because we paid them or something. Its very sincere and you can see how much passion is there.” With only a month or two of planning and an emphasis on communication, Lambda-Beta’s alumni officers have been able to connect and utilize about 95 percent of their alumni base and incorporate them into the semesterly event. “We’re still a brotherhood,” said Mule. “It’s the real deal. I don’t think it would be as strong and we wouldn’t have this generational bond without an event like this.”

    Lambda Chi Alpha raises $20,000 for charity

    By Chloe Barrett Clarion, University of Denver student publication disabledDU’s chapter of the Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity recently donated $20,000 to the National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD), one of the world’s largest therapeutic recreation agencies with an array of year-round sports and recreational experiences offered for all disabilities and diagnoses. In the winter, participants can enjoy cross-country skiing, alpine skiing, snowboarding, Nordic hut trips, ski racing and snowshoeing with the mountain programs. In the spring, summer and fall, partakers can go rock climbing, swimming, sailing, camping, horse riding, river rafting, canoeing and kayaking. “They are an amazing organization headquartered in the Mile High Stadium,” said Nicolas Salvini, Lambda Chi Alpha’s Philanthropy Chair. Half of the donation money was generated from members growing 1970s-style mustaches and asking friends and families to sponsor them by donating to the NSCD—the greater the mustache, the greater the donations. Additionally, each member of the chapter was expected to donate at least $50. The rest of the donation money came from ticket sales for Mustache Bash: a benefit concert where party-goers don their most extravagant disco garb and dance to throwback ‘70s hits played by a live band. To make the event as accessible and safe as possible, Lambda provides transportation to and from the venue and utilizes sober monitors both in the busses and at the concert. “We really want people to be aware of what an amazing impact the NSCD has,” said Salvini. The DU chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha has raised over $100,000 for the disabled from many years of mustache antics, and Salvini said they look forward to another successful fundraising period come springtime.

    Lambda Chi raises $10k in inaugural color run

    By Arnelle Jones The Herald, Arkansas State University student publication colorrun“I’m ready to get messy!” said Casey Williams, sophomore Spanish education major of North Little Rock, before walking in the inaugural Lambda Chi Alpha’s Color Run for the Kids. Arkansas State University students, alumni and members of the Jonesboro community came together to walk, run and raise money for the Arkansas Children’s Hospital as well as have some child-like fun with colored powder. The energetic mood was apparent early Saturday morning as the participants gathered in front of the Arkansas State University Biosciences Institute to checkin, mingle and get pumped up to music by DJ King Vick. Jason Woodworth, sophomore accounting major of North Little Rock and Lambda Chi Alpha member, said 100 percent of the profits from the more than $10,000 raised will go to Arkansas Children’s Hospital. The planning for the event began in July, and was headed by the Lambda Chi Alpha Philanthropy Chair Jared Dietz. Earl Morris, Lambda Chi Alpha alumnus and 2015 Wilson Award recipient, said he was glad to see the volunteerism at the race. “I’m really proud of these guys for putting this on. It’s really cool to see them give back to the community,” Morris said. As the air became accented with purple, green, orange and blue powder, a countdown was initiated as the runners and walkers arrived at the starting line. When the countdown finally arrived to one, participants tossed the remaining amounts of their colored powder into the air began the race. The 5k route began and ended in front of the Biosciences Institute and wrapped through campus by Centennial Bank Stadium, down University Loop, and past the Convocation Center. Despite this being their first time hosting a color run, Lambda Chi was met with great success. According to organization’s official Instagram, the event raised over $10,000. Many participants are already excited to attend the next one. Lambda Chi is grateful for all who showed their support for this event. In the words of Woodworth, “Thank you to everyone that came out and supported us.” This article originally appeared at http://www.astateherald.com/news/lambda-chi-raises-k-in-inaugural-color-run/article_c1230662-72c7-11e5-b696-434fb848ee62.htm

  • Lambda Chi Alpha Resigns Its Membership in the North American Interfraternity Conference

    Carmel, Ind., October 27, 2015 – Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. has resigned its membership in the North American Interfraternity Conference, effective immediately. A proud and active member of the fraternity trade association for 106 years, Lambda Chi believes the NIC’s new direction is counterproductive and does not support a co-curricular partnership with our host institutions. The decision to resign was voted on and approved by the fraternity’s Board of Directors. “For more than a century, we have supported the NIC’s efforts and advocated for its stated principles and values,” said Fletcher McElreath, chairman of the Board, Lambda Chi Alpha. “Unfortunately, the NIC has recently elected to pursue counterproductive tactics that we believe are antithetical to our values and we cannot support them.” Recently, the NIC has been struggling from internal governance dysfunction that has led to in-fighting and the development of factions that are a distraction from the pursuit of the NIC’s mission. “We face many challenges in the Greek system today and this internal squabbling has rendered the NIC increasingly paralyzed in its efforts,” said Bill Farkas, chief executive officer, Lambda Chi Alpha Lambda Chi Alpha prides itself on being an organization that meets or exceeds all NIC standards and the fraternity will continue to hold its chapters and members accountable to standards that are equal to or greater than those advanced by the NIC. “Lambda Chi Alpha will continue to pursue the development of strong co-curricular partnerships with our host institutions across North America and to promote an environment where all like-minded Greek organizations can be successful,” Farkas said. “Unfortunately, we will do so outside the umbrella of the NIC, unless or until, we are convinced that the NIC’s policies and values are consistent with ours and consistent with the best interests of our campus communities.” About Lambda Chi Alpha Headquartered in the Indianapolis suburb of Carmel, Ind., Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity is one of the largest men’s general fraternities in North America with more than 280,000 initiated members and has held chapters at more than 300 universities.

  • Editorial: Students must reconsider how community service fits into their lives

    Brothers from the University of North Dakota raise over 8,000 pounds of food.
    This article was originally posted by The Daily Northwestern here.
    Rovik Robert, Columnist October 25, 2015 • We all can agree that college provides some of the best memories we get in life. From extracurriculars to academics, much of what makes college great is the fact that we are able to have experiences that will last a lifetime. Beyond that, everything we do in college builds our character and allows us to transform into mature adults. Yet worryingly, Northwestern students do not seem to make the effort to do community service, and when they do, they do so indirectly in the form of philanthropies that are less effective in helping students glean a greater understanding of the world around them. Let’s first address the following question: What’s the role of volunteering and community service in our society? Our world is a complex one, where people are driven by incentives and utility. Most of the time, this equates to an individualistic manner of living — what can I do to improve my state of being? Yet among all this ambition, there exist communities that have fallen through the cracks — people who have either gotten the short end of the stick or lost their way. Sometimes we talk about communities that lack a voice. To help these communities, nonprofits and charities take on huge costs. Without volunteers, the equivalent volunteer wage of $23.07 would have to be paid to employees. Volunteers are a necessity for many charitable groups. So clearly, community service and volunteering are important. But how do we approach it at NU? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the volunteering rate is lowest for people just about to enter the workforce, namely upperclassmen and recent college graduates, with a volunteer rate of 18.7 percent. On NU’s campus, there are numerous clubs and groups that claim to promote community service. From service groups to advocacy groups, it would appear that the campus has a strong culture of community involvement. Yet, I question if that’s actually the case. Because NU comprises 8,405 undergraduates, it would be unreasonable to make sweeping claims about students’ view of community service. That said, we can look at quantitative evidence to get a picture. The city-wide event NU Gives Back had about 470 people sign up last year, and although that’s a record number for them, that number (which also included staff and alumni) is but a small proportion of the student population. The University hasn’t released many statistics on the level of community involvement on campus and the college climate toward it, but I have some thoughts on why community service is not taking greater precedence in the lives of students. For one, it is becoming more and more acceptable to consider philanthropy (essentially fundraising) as a substitute for volunteer work. Students may consider buying pork buns in the Technological Institute or attending a Greek organization’s event and paying $5 as their contribution to the community. While philanthropy goes a long way in helping organizations that need aid, it in no way reduces the need for volunteers and actual involvement. Many Greek organizations are starting to realize this and are modifying their service strategies. In Lambda Chi Alpha, as the vice president for philanthropy, I overhauled the system to ensure brothers commit an equal amount of direct service and philanthropy. As a result, brothers have shown a better awareness of the issues behind food scarcity and the importance of Feeding America’s work, only because they directly worked with the organization as opposed to simply raising money from the comforts of the campus. Some philanthropies result in students focusing on events so much that participants forget who the beneficiary even is. While there are other reasons behind the lack of direct community involvement, the general attitude of college students is likely the largest. We want to think we are doing good work but still want to remain comfortable in the college bubble. The truth is that community service is all about being uncomfortable; it’s about realizing that there are needs in this world that have to be addressed and that we need to step up to help communities gain access to a decent quality of life. By making volunteering an option now, we instill in ourselves the habit of being involved in our communities. That’s the best gift you can give your adult self.
