Alpha Lambda Delta was founded at the University of Illinois in 1924 specifically to honor excellent academic achievement by students in their first year of study in higher education. The constitution states its purpose as follows: "...to encourage superior academic achievement...to promote intelligent living and a continued high standard of learning and to assist students in recognizing and developing meaningful goals for their roles in society." In addition to the initial recognition described, the Society has numerous programs to encourage continued superior classroom performance, such as awards, national workshops, campus activities and fellowships and loans for undergraduate, graduate, and professional study.
Alpha Lambda Delta is a national society that honors academic excellence during students first year in college. The Sam Houston Chapter of Alpha Lambda Delta was founded on November 13, 1970. The purpose of this organization is to encourage superior academic achievement among students in their first year in institutions of higher education, to promote intelligent living and continued high standard of learning, and to assist women and men in recognizing and developing meaningful goals for their roles in society.
