The Paedagogus – Cenetennial Edition

The 51st Edition of the Paedagogus just came out…and highlighting the Centennial of our Fraternity.

The cover of the Paed is a deep green and embossed in gold leafing with the title and the Centennial logo.

The first thing you will notice about this Centennial Edition is that it is printed completely in color! A beautiful surprise, to say the least. Also, this education manual has been updated with all of the latest Lambda Chi Alpha information, logos, officer descriptions, Chapter Histories and other Lambda Chi national information. And while Lambda-Iota Zeta was not an active Chapter while this book was published, there are quite a few obvious (and 1 or 2 subtle) Lambda-Iota references.

Lambda-Iota references include:

p.55 Our Heritage (Emblems and their significance)
The Flag of Lambda Chi Alpha

*Note: I was on the Lambda Chi Alpha Graphics Committee from its beginnings in 2005(?) and one of my tasks was to re-create the LCA Flag. Of course it had to show chapter designation, and what better chapter to show designation, than Lambda-Iota. Take a peak at our chapter representing! Kinda snuck that one in there.
