Alpha Lambda Delta National Honor Society for First-year Students
Alpha Lambda Delta is a national honor society for first-year students. If you have maintained a 3.5 or higher GPA (on a 4.0-point scale) during your first year at the University of Massachusetts Boston, you will be invited to join this prestigious society.
Alpha Lambda Delta was founded in 1924 at the University of Illinois specifically to honor excellent academic achievement by students in their first year of study in higher education. When you join Alpha Lambda Delta, you become part of a recognized, well-established honor society with over 850,000 lifetime members.
The Alpha Lambda Delta mission is 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 unique roles in society.
On campus, Alpha Lambda Delta engages in community service and civic engagement projects, leadership development training, and opportunities for students to apply for scholarships. Students inducted into the honor society receive a membership certificate, insignia pin, and cords to wear at commencement. Membership in Alpha Lambda Delta is for life, and members become part of an organization with nearly one million members nationwide.
