About Lambda Chi Alpha at Michigan State University
Lambda Chi Alpha was established at Michigan State University in 1922 and was the first Greek Lettered Fraternity allowed back on campus since the ban in the 1880s. Lambda Chi Alpha is the 3rd largest fraternity nationally and our chapter, Gamma Omicron, has over 2,200 alumni. In 2011, we were awarded and recognized for having the Chapter of the Year, Best Member Education program and the President of the Year. We have weekly social events that include tailgates, sorority mixers, date parties, brotherhood events and many others. But our fraternity involves much more. We place a high value on academics, with our chapter having the highest GPA on campus among fraternities. Becoming a part of the brotherhood of Lambda Chi Alpha is an incredible way to develop close friendships that would otherwise be challenging on such a huge campus. We are always looking for great men to add to our brotherhood to carry on the tradition and excellence of Lambda Chi Alpha.
If you have any questions or would like to find out more about Lambda Chi Alpha please feel free to contact any of the brothers to the right.
Philanthropy Event: Brothers Feeding Others
The men of Lambda Chi Alpha hold their annual Pumpkin Smash philanthropy event every fall, in an effort to raise money and canned food donations for the North American Food Drive. The brothers invite sororities from every house on campus over to the Lambda Chi house to participate in numerous field events such as the second-story pumpkin smash contest and relays. Additional proceeds are raised during the spring semester, through the Lambda Chi Alpha Watermelon Bust. All of the canned food contributions raised by the participants are donated to Saint John’s Student Parish of East Lansing. Aside from supporting the North American Food Drive, the brothers give back to the community through volunteering their time at local food banks as well as actively participating in other fraternity and sorority philanthropy events throughout the year. The brothers of Lambda Chi Alpha place a high value on giving back to the community and actively do so throughout each semester.
