Founded in 1924, Alpha Lambda Delta (ALD) is a national honor society in which only full-time, degree-seeking, first-year students who have achieved at least a 3.5 GPA in the first semester of study are invited to become members. The mission of ALD is to encourage superior academic achievement among students in their first year in institutions of higher education, 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.

UNC Greensboro’s chapter was founded May 8, 1988, and currently has over 500 current members here on campus. Once inducted, members participate in a variety of academic and social service opportunities. ALD members enjoy study nights, social events, and leadership development opportunities throughout their academic careers at UNCG.

Here are just a few ways ALD at UNCG has made a difference in the community:

  • Creating Birthday Boxes for children at Mary’s House, a residential facility for mothers recovering from substance abuse, and their children
  • Volunteering at Scarowinds
  • Hosting CANstruction, an event to collect canned goods for the Spartan Open Pantry and Greensboro Urban Ministry
  • Volunteering at Guilford Nursing Home
  • Participating in Operation Christmas Child to provide holiday gifts to children
  • Hosting Pennies for Puppies to raise money for local animal shelters
  • Participating in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life
  • Collecting Box Tops to raise money for Archer Elementary School

Alpha Lambda Delta members also enjoy study nights, social events, and leadership development opportunities.
