New members in the Lambda Chi Alpha are immediately welcomed as potential brothers in the bond through the Fraternity’s exoteric Associate Member Ceremony.  Over the course of eight to ten weeks, they learn about Lambda Chi Alpha, its history, how we are organized, how we function as a group, how we govern ourselves, how we develop leaders for our chapter, our campus, our country, and, most importantly, how we develop Brotherhood.

New members are provided with a foundation of conceptual understandings and practical skills facilitating developmental growth as men and contributing Brothers of Lambda Chi Alpha. The Fraternity offers knowledge, skills, support, and opportunities in a structured, brotherly environment, yet the opportunity to move forward is still inherently placed upon the individual to make what they will of the experience.
