Interesting Facts Lambda Chi Alpha:
-We have initiated more brothers than any other fraternity on campus (1405).
-We are the third largest fraternity in the world with well over 250,000 initiates since our creation on November 2nd, 1909.
-We have a ghost named Abigail who has existed in the house as far back as our alumni can remember.
-In 1972, we were the first fraternity to abolish pledging, at which we coined the term ‘Associate Member’ for those seeking to join our brotherhood, and gave them the same rights and treatment as a brother. They can even hold office before being initiated.
