Alpha Lambda Delta is a national society that honors academic excellence during a student’s first year in college.
Founded as an honorary society for freshmen women at the University of Illinois in 1924, Alpha Lambda Delta became a national organization as chapters were established at Purdue University in 1926 and DePauw University in 1927. The Shenandoah University chapter was chartered in 1998. Its purpose is to encourage superior academic achievement among students in their first year in institutions of higher education, to promote intelligent living and a continued higher standard of learning, and to assist women and men in recognizing and developing meaningful roles in society. Eligibility is based on grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 or higher during the first year or semester of college.
40% of freshmen qualified for Alpha Lambda Delta during the 2015-2016 academic year.
Of the 144 students who were eligible to participate for the 2014-2015 academic year, 99 accepted membership.
