Dear current and future members of Alpha Lambda Delta and Phi Eta Sigma,

I am excited to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year! This year holds the promise of self-growth and new opportunities. The executive officer team is working on creating a beneficial membership with both of the honor societies that will help you grow as a person through leadership, service, and scholarship.

We have events throughout the school year along with awarding two scholarships in the spring. One event that we as an officer team are very passionate about is the Big Red Thanks. This is an event that allows these societies to give back to the University of Nebraska Lincoln campus.  Each semester we show our gratitude to a group of faculty on campus who have helped support our campus. In the spring we support Relay for Life, which is a fundraiser event on campus through the American Cancer Society benefitting cancer research and treatment. The societies put together a team of members and also donate money. More information can be found under the service projects tab.

These societies also provide the opportunity to be a leader on campus. Each year new officers are elected to continue to grow and improve the society. Being an officer also allows you to grow as a person and make a difference in your college community. You will learn skills that will help you after graduation.

If you are currently a member, thank you for being part of one or both of these organizations and supporting all that we do. You are the reason we continue to hold events and help this campus grow. If you are looking into becoming a member, the executive team encourages you to look through the website especially under the Eligibility, Benefits, Scholarships, and FAQ tabs to learn more about what we as two honor societies can offer you. If one or both of these organizations interest you, we encourage you to take the next step and join. These societies have been honoring students who strive academically on the UNL campus since the 1970s.
