Class of 2017 Graduates

As the Spring semester comes to a close, a new wave of graduates start their next chapter in life. We would like to congratulate the Spring 2017 graduates on this great achievement, and give a special congratulations to our brothers that will set forth on their new endeavors. Time will come and go, but the traditions, principles and ideals of Lambda Chi Alpha will never fade. Strive to continue the leadership that has made you grow as a student, man and a brother. As always; naught without labor.

Brothers in Action – Rush Elementary

Brothers in Action – Rush Elementary

The Brothers of Lambda Chi Alpha took time out of their finals week to meet up at Rush Elementary and help their staff began the process of refurbishing a locker room for a pool owned by the school. Painting, caulking, taping and cleaning up trash from the premise. We spent the afternoon giving back to the local community and in return we grew a deeper passion for the Lubbock community.

Today the gentlemen of Lambda Chi Alpha were able to help the Lubbock Dream Center by participating in their food pantry and adopt-a-block program. Brothers served in activities such as trash pick-up, packaging food, and distributing meal packages to those in need through their mobile food truck. The Lubbock Dream Center is an amazing organization that works extremely hard to inspire, aid, and support the Lubbock Community.

Excited to be in the Heart of Lubbock

Excited to be in the Heart of Lubbock

As you may have heard, the alumni-established Sigma Nu Zeta Housing Corporation of Lambda Chi Alpha has recently purchased 1901 33rd St. and are excited to be a part of the Heart of Lubbock community. The Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity sets as its supreme goal the development of men to the highest standards and principles. As such, it is the vision of Lambda Chi Alpha to extend itself beyond the traditional social fraternity by giving back to the community through philanthropy, leadership development, alumni relationships, and a focus on academics; where our undergraduate members have an average 3.018 GPA and are #3 out of all 23 fraternities (the all men’s campus average at Tech was a 2.751 GPA).

To better develop a member’s sense of community and service undergraduate members invest hundreds of hours every semester toward local and national philanthropic events that include:
– Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity.
– South Plains Grub Farm where we planted seeds, painted a chicken coup and did gardening.
– South Plains Foodbank where we’ve provided over 3,600 meals to the local Fight Against Hunger campaign.
– The Rush Elementary fall festival helping run mini carnival games and the concession stand.

We understand that some of our new neighbors are hesitant about us moving into the neighborhood, and we want to address your concerns. Please allow me to share with you the following information about the actions currently underway and restrictions that we already have in place:
– Significant refurbishment, security and safety upgrades, and maintenance will be completed in the next 2-3 weeks on the premises.
– At full capacity, there will only be 4 undergraduate students living on the premises.
– Large fraternity parties/mixers will NOT take place on the premises.
– Parking will NOT impact traffic flow or neighbors’ access to street parking.

We look forward to getting to know you as neighbors and community partners.

Watermelon Bash 2016

Watermelon Bash 2016

The 2016 Watermelon Bash was a huge success! We got together 540 watermelons from our local farmers; having a good majority of them thrown and beaten with bats, but the best were saved for a watermelon eating contest to establish the true winning team. We had a total of 23 teams come out to our event, totaling to about 120 girls. We partnered up with Lubbock’s local South Plains Food Bank raising up to 1,205 dollars and providing 3,615 meals for our local community. Watermelon Bash is one of our most charitable and favorite events of the academic year, and we couldn’t have done it without our helpful Alumni and Parents. We would like to thank Marc Mousseau and other alumni for donating that awesome Lambda Chi Alpha flag, it has helped out our tailgates exponentially. We look forward to seeing all of our Alumni and Parents throughout the semester.
