The Indiana Lambda Chapter at the University of Southern Indiana is extremely proud to announce that a 32-man Phikeia class has been recruited this fall. The class has the potential to become the the largest initiation class in Indiana Lambda’s history. The chapter’s recruitment success can be attributed to the leadership of Recruitment Chairman Jacob Noe and his recruitment committee. The chapter noticed organizational issues during its previous few recruitment seasons, but worked to fix the issue through diligent tracking of those potential new members and a focus on social media outreach. Indiana Lambda is ranked in the top three for fraternity grades on campus, and is the reigning all campus intramural, Greek Week, and Greek Olympic champions. Along with the chapter’s success, the University of Southern Indiana had its most successful Greek recruitment season this fall. More than 100 men and 250 women joined Greek organizations this semester and made the choice to “become something greater than themselves.”
On October 2, Indiana Lambda hosted their annual “Buy a Phi” fundraiser to benefit The ALS Association. The event is hosted each year following the pinning of the new Phikeia class and is hosted in an auction setting where members of the crowd bid on the brothers and Phikeias. The highest bidder is able to work with the brother or Phikeia on two hours of service. Services can range anywhere from cleanings, laundry, homework help, or even volunteering their time at a homeless shelter. Regardless of the service, the main purpose of the fundraiser is to raise money for The ALS Association. Indiana Lambda is very proud to announce that this year, they raised more than $2,500 for The ALS Association.
