Alpha Sigma Lambda nontraditional honor society inducts new members

Wednesday, June 7, 2017


MANHATTAN — Kansas State University inducted 24 students into the university's chapter of Alpha Sigma Lambda for 2017.

The national honor society was founded in 1945 and recognizes adult students who achieve and maintain high scholastic standards. It is the oldest and largest chapter-based honor society for full- and part-time undergraduate adult students.

New members were inducted at the Kansas State University Global Campus Honors and Awards Reception May 3.

"Nontraditional students often balance career, family and community with their education," said Rebecca Dale, academic advisor and student services coordinator at Kansas State University Global Campus. "This year's inductees have demonstrated a commitment to learning that inspires others toward the highest academic achievements."

To be eligible to join Kansas State University's Omega Xi chapter of Alpha Sigma Lambda, nontraditional students must be currently enrolled with a minimum of 24 credit hours completed toward an undergraduate degree program at the university and have a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher.
