Celebrating 90 years of Lambda Chi at UCLA.

Lambda Chi Alpha

Over our 90 years at UCLA, Lambda Chi Alpha is a tremendously accomplished fraternity. Among its achievements, the chapter has consistently won First Place in UCLA’s Standards of Excellence over multiple years, maintains one of the highest cumulative GPAs in the UCLA Greek System, and has had the most successful and selective recruitment of any fraternity over the last few years. In 2013, the chapter was awarded the Grand High Alpha Award, the highest honor in Lambda Chi Alpha. Chapters only become eligible for this distinction after three consecutive years of sustained excellence.

Lambda Chi Alpha has a packed social calendar, a history of athletic excellence, and an exceptional record of philanthropy. Brothers directly influence the daily operations of the chapter, from creating the operating budget to planning and executing all of the chapter’s events. Additionally, our incredible network of alumni connections provides brothers with many opportunities to capitalize on the skills they develop during their undergraduate years.

Lambda Chi Alpha is one of the largest men’s general fraternities in North America. The youngest of the 20 national social fraternities, it has initiated more than 300,000 members at more than 300 universities.

A Lifetime of TRUE Brotherhood.
What we can offer you

Networking

Very few international organizations can boast of membership as large as 300,000. Our alumni and national members constantly create lifetime bonds and help brothers further their professional careers.

Academics

Academics are our priority. Our chapter has consistently had the highest GPA of all 200+ international Lambda Chi Alpha chapters (and recently at UCLA). Dedicated study hours, academic support programs, test banks, and a library of textbooks give our brothers an environment to succeed. Plus our 110+ academically driven members are invaluable sources of knowledge and actively work to help the academic success of others.

Leadership

Weekly executive meetings, involvement as an officer, UCLA workshops, and intranational retreats are some of the ways our brothers gain hands-on leadership experience. All Members, even Associate Members, have the ability to hold an officer position, attend multi-day regional conferences sponsored by our chapter’s alumni, and learn from others what it takes to become a strong leader.

Community

Our brotherhood is built upon giving back to the community through philanthropy. We partner locally with organizations to benefit our community and also with national groups such as Feeding America in our fight to end hunger.
