On Friday October 14, 2016 at the Lettinga campus an initiation ceremony and charter induction for Alpha Lambda Delta (ALD) was conducted with over 200 people in attendance. Mr. Anthony Helms from Western Michigan University presented Patricia Hollemans student president with the official charter membership. Patricia and fellow officers, Randi Koogler and Timothy Miller assisted co-advisors Joe Bishop and Cari Weymouth, and lead academic advisor Dr. Jodi Hicks with the induction ceremony.



During the ceremony an impressive 82 students were recognized for their high academic achievements that they earned during their first year at DU. Special honorary memberships were awarded to Dr. Irene Bembenista, Dr. Linda Rinker, Dr. Jodi Hicks, Joe Bishop and Cari Weymouth.

Alpha Lambda Delta was founded in 1924 specifically to honor excellent academic achievement by students in their first year of study in higher education.  The constitution states its purpose as follows:  ”… to encourage superior academic achievement… to promote intelligent living and a continued high standard of learning and to assist students in recognizing and developing meaningful goals for their roles in society.”

​Congratulations Inductees!​
