For Parents and Families

Though Lambda Chi is our family at school, our families at home are never far from our minds. Every April, we sponsor a Parents Weekend at the house so that everyone can meet and mingle over a barbecue, wine tour, or other activities.

We know that our parents worry about us, but Lambda Chi Alpha is a safe, supportive place as well as a fun one. We abolished the “pledgeship” model of fraternity education in 1972, and the Cornell chapter has a long tradition fighting hazing. We strive to make our active and diverse brotherhood everything a 21st-century, Ivy League fraternity should be.
