1. What would you like students to know about your organization?

Alpha Psi Lambda was established on February 11, 1985 at Ohio State University and has grown to 25 chapters in 7 states with over 2,200 members. Our fraternity promotes academic achievement, leadership development and cultural awareness.

Being the Nation's first and largest co-ed Latino-based fraternity, we are proud to say that we are more than a Brotherhood, more than a Sisterhood; we are a Familia (familly).

We strive for excellence and place the strong emphasis on education as well as serving the campus and outside community. Our goal is to enhance an individual's leadership abilities and help pave the way for future success.

2. What does your organization do for our campus and surrounding community?

As an organization, we emphasize community service. We were founded on the basis of serving our universities and communities, and we focus on fulfilling those duties throughout the year.

Each semester we spend time helping out at the Boys and Girls Club in Bloomington. Our sisters and brothers enjoy being able to help out the children who attend their after school programs.

We also spend time cleaning the highways in the Bloomington area. We currently have our own highway in downtown Bloomington that we personally take care of.

Recently, some of our brothers and sisters participated and raised money for the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics held in Bloomington-Normal.

3. Any past events you would like to highlight?

An event that our fraternity hosted on campus is #toimmigrantswithlove. People around campus were able to write letters to immigrants to show that they stand with the immigrant community no matter what. This was a great way to get students involved and it was a success.

4. What's one event that has impacted the campus?

This semester we hosted a community service event for Project Linus where we made several nice blankets for kids in need.

Also, each year our chapter offers a scholarship opportunity for ISU students who meet the requirements. We believe that giving back to the community in several ways is very important.
