Alpha Lambda Delta

First-Year Programs oversees the NKU chapter of Alpha Lambda Delta (ALD), the National Honor Society for First-Year Students. Eligible students are formally inducted in the spring of their first year and become part of a community of scholars for the remainder of their college experience.  ALD organizes social, academic and service events for its members every semester.
