Your Son’s Home Away From Home

Parents

Now that your son is in college, he will never have a finer opportunity to learn, to grow and to become the best version of himself than he will have as an undergraduate. That’s where Lambda Chi Alpha comes in.

We’ve helped college men pursue ethical lives of growth, service and leadership since 1909. Forget stereotypes and the cultural perceptions of college fraternities. This is our house, and we do things differently. Lambda Chi Alpha brings timeless ideals to a modern legacy—one of loyalty, courage and focus. We are committed to creating a powerful cycle of authentic men-who want to serve, lead and make a positive impact on themselves and society. We’ll provide academic programming and structured study schedules, and help your son balance academic and social life.

Just as importantly, we’ll treat your son like family. Because he will be family. He’ll be our brother. 

Hazing Is A Thing Of The Past.

We were the first fraternity to abolish pledgeship in 1972 and have denounced hazing in all forms. From day one, your son will fully experience Lambda Chi Alpha membership and will enjoy every aspect of brotherhood as an Associate Member. He’ll be educated on our history and values and learn what it means to lead with loyalty and purpose.

Joining a fraternity can change your son’s college experience. Joining Lambda Chi Alpha will change his life.

A Lifetime Of Brotherhood Awaits

Your son will learn that when he leaves college, Lambda Chi Alpha never leaves him. Not when he leads a company, raises a family, or serves the community. Because Lambda Chi Alpha is one of North America’s largest fraternities, the contacts he enjoys in the professional world will prove invaluable. We fulfill a lifelong obligation to our members through networking opportunities, support and engagement.

A Bold Way to a Better World

Lambda Chi Alpha is an international fraternity of men who serve, lead and make a positive impact on themselves and society through intentional and meaningful experiences. Thousands of young men have taken this path before your son. We call this journey a bold way to a better world.
