Mar 11th, 2013 | By

Congratulations to the following students who were elected into the following offices!     History of Alpha Sigma Lambda Alpha Sigma Lambda is a nationally recognized honor society devoted to the advancement of scholarship and to the recognition of full- and part-time non-traditional adult students. The founding chapter was established in 1946 by Dr. Rollin Posey, Dean of University College at Northwestern University, to recognize the accomplishments of those returning to academic pursuits after the close of World War II.  Dr. Posey realized that a measure of encouragement and recognition accorded an adult student’s scholastic achievement at an early stage of his/her program could provide the thrust of desire to achieve his/her educational objectives.  Dr. Posey founded a society, Alpha Sigma Lambda, to honor those dedicated adult students, who while adroitly handling their life responsibilities, achieve and maintain high scholastic standards. Alpha Sigma Lambda stands as an inspiration to scholastic
