Testimonials from Current Members
"Something I have always noticed in ALD members is how they welcome the challenge of being held to a higher standard--whether in academia, campus leadership, or serving others. In this increasingly fast-paced world, it is encouraging to know that college students understand the importance of putting others before themselves, and doing all that they can to make a difference in this world."
- Natasha Hongsermeier, Morningside College
"ALD has made such an impact on my college career. Through ALD I have gained experience in areas that otherwise wouldn't have been possible. On a national level, ALD provided me with a scholarship that helped me study abroad in Germany for a month last summer. On a local level, my chapter of ALD has built and honed my leadership skills, and through the organization I have met some of my best friends."
- David Kane, Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis
"My time with Alpha Lambda Delta has taught me that the hard work and collaboration of young people can bring about meaningful social change. ALD has fostered my love for service and has taught me to be a more compassionate, socially-conscious individual. Without ALD, I would not be the person I am today."
- William Covington, University of Colorado - Colorado Springs
"Alpha Lambda Delta has impacted my life tremendously. Ever since my induction into the honor society I have been more confident in my academics and in my leadership. Being recognized by your colleagues as a freshman because of your academic achievements instills a confidence in you that you can build upon in your collegiate future."
- Darius Williams-McKenzie, Penn State - Altoona
