The History of Lambda Chi Alpha
On May 20 1918, the first 27 undergraduates of Wabash College were initiated into, what is now one of the largest national fraternities in America, and currently the fastest-growing with over 207,000 initiates. The Brothers of Alpha Kappa Zeta and their traditions moved to different locations around Crawfordsville before making their permanent residence at 515 West Jennison Street in Crawfordsville, IN.
Lambda Chi Alpha has a rich history of academics, athletics, and extracurricular activities. We continue to be very competitive academically on campus as well, maintaining a house GPA within the top three living units, annually. Not only are we the largest fraternity on campus, but also a house of leaders. Brothers and associates are active in Student Senate, Interfraternity Council, Newman Center Catholic club, Society of Physics Students, Unidos por Sangre, AMPED, and Alpha Phi Omega. We also have eight members of the Sphinx Club as well as several captains of Wabash athletics teams.
We have brothers who perform exceptionally in swimming, track, baseball, basketball, football, rugby, the wind ensemble, the jazz band, the glee club, Spanish club, the biology society and the chemistry club. We also field very competitive intramural schedule, where we finished first on campus for the 2010-2011 academic year, and won several of the sports. Members of Lambda Chi Alpha know how to keep busy and make a difference.
