Alpha Sigma Lambda

Alpha Sigma Lambda’s aim is to recognize the special achievements of adults who accomplish academic excellence while facing competing interests of home and work. Alpha Sigma Lambda is dedicated to the advancement of scholarship and recognizes high scholastic achievement in an adult student’s career. By so doing, this Society encourages many students to continue toward and to earn associate and baccalaureate degrees. 

The national society awards scholarships to high-achieving adult students. Application packets are available during the spring semester. Membership in Alpha Sigma Lambda is not a requirement for the scholarship.

Drury University’s Evening College established its Alpha Xi Chapter in 1969 and has inducted over 1,000 students to date. We enjoy celebrating our hardworking adult students each fall and spring at our induction ceremonies.
