Founded at Purdue University in 1978, we have since grown to include chapters at

  • Ferris State University
  • Fresno State University
  • Penn State University, Wilkes-Barre
  • The Ohio State University

    Chapters are currently being formed at other universities, and these will be announced soon.

    Each initiate makes a Lambda Sigma survey stake that is signed by the membership at the initiation ceremony.
