Alpha Sigma Lambda nontraditional honor society inducts new members

Tuesday, June 14, 2016

 

MANHATTAN — A national honor society that recognizes adult students who achieve and maintain high scholastic standards has 46 new members from Kansas State University.

The university's chapter of Alpha Sigma Lambda inducted its new 2016 members at the Kansas State University Global Campus Honors and Awards Reception on May 4. Founded in 1945, Alpha Sigma Lambda is the oldest and largest chapter-based honor society for full- and part-time undergraduate adult students.

"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.
