Student Organizations and Activities
ALPHA SIGMA LAMBDA
Alpha Sigma Lambda, the premier national honor society for adult students, was inaugurated at La Salle in December 1966. The La Salle University Alpha Delta chapter is open by invitation to men and women who have been enrolled in a college or university for an average of four semesters, completed a minimum of 30 semester credits at La Salle, and have a minimum academic index of 3.4. The Alpha Delta chapter seeks to promote and recognize the efforts and accomplishments of adult scholars through a formal induction and reception, which is usually held once each academic year.
ALPHA EPSILON SOCIETY
The Alpha Epsilon alumni honor society was instituted at La Salle University in 1936 to recognize “high scholarship in the pursuit of a Christian and liberal education together with the exceptional but unrewarded participation in the extracurricular life of the University.” Members are selected each year from the upper fifth of the senior class, which includes Professional and Continuing Studies students.
The Society also inducts, from time to time, members of the faculty and alumni who have demonstrated loyalty and service to the University.
SIGMA THETA TAU
Sigma Theta Tau, an international honor society for nursing, was initiated at La Salle in 1988. It is open to students who have demonstrated superior achievement and scholarship in nursing. Inductions occur in the spring semester of each academic year.
