CONGRATULATIONS are in order for the newest initiated brothers of Lambda Chi Alpha Lambda Iota Zeta.  Fall 2010 grades are in and the men posted an impressive 3.15 cumulative GPA.  Way to go men.  The 932 brothers before you are impressed by your hard work and dedication.  Keep up the good work men. You make us proud.  A special thanks goes out also to Nick “Pokes” Weisensel on his dedication and hard work with these men.  Ever since their return, Nick has driven home the importance of grades and education.  Nick deserves just as much recognition as the undergrads. Way to go guys.

Lambda Chi Alpha Coat of Arms: Lion

Friday, July 20th, 2007

COALionThe Coat of Arms was always a great learning experience when discussed as an undergrad. Because of the complexity of our COA, much of the symbolism becomes muddied and misconstrued. Many of the elements which were adopted from Theta Kappa Nu, especially, have these problems.

The Lion, rampant*, which is displayed on the escutcheon of our Coat of Arms is often the source of much talk. The Lion on Theta Kappa Nu’s COA was red. Jack Mason thought a red lion looked like a “ketchup spill” in the middle, so the Lion’s color was officially changed to black (another of TKN’s colors). However, it often appears in white, silver or gold, depending on the artist or printing company.
