Clayton State University is one of 14 institutions in the state of Georgia to hold a chapter of National Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society for first-year students.
Dr. Glenda Earwood, executive director of National Alpha Lambda Delta, delivered the keynote address, and the Clayton State chapter inducted 27 students on Tuesday, Mar. 18 in the ballroom of the University’s Student Activities Center.
Founded in the spring of 1924 at the University of Illinois by Dean Maria Leonard, Alpha Lambda Delta is a national honor society that recognizes and encourages academic excellence among first year students. Today, Alpha Lambda Delta has more than 270 chapters throughout the United States and more than 850,000 students have been initiated into membership since the first chapter was started. Membership in Alpha Lambda Delta is open to full-time freshman students who earn a scholastic average of 3.5 or better at a four-year college or university.
Alpha Lambda Delta emphasizes that educated persons have a responsibility to “have tolerance in your dealings with all persons, generosity in giving to those in need, and insight into the feelings of others” says Earwood. Members are challenged to make a “meaningful contribution to society.”
