On November 2nd, 1909 Lambda Chi Alpha was founded at Boston University. Yesterday, we showed you the most notable SigEps, so we thought it’d be only fair to showcase some of the more noteworthy Lambdas. They’re one of the largest fraternities in North America, having initiated more than 280,000 members and held chapters at more than 300 universities. It’s also one the youngest of the fifteen largest social fraternities, but has initiated the third highest number of men ever, based on NIC statistics. Its open mottos are Vir Quisque Vir (Latin) Every Man a Man; Per Crucem Crescens (Latin) Growth through the Cross; and Χαλεπα Τα Καλα (Greek) Naught Without Labor.
We didn’t have Lambdas at Hopkins but we did have the pledge class Lambda, whom we dubbed “Lame-da” because they refused to do ANYTHING we told them. They just chanted, “Or What?!” over and over. Actually, that’s kinda bad-ass. Check out the most notable Lambdas in our slideshow below.
