Adelphi Chapter Takes Home Outstanding Chapter Award


The NY Phi Lambda Chapter at Adelphi University received the George A. Beck Outstanding Chapter Award at the 2012-2013 Presidential Awards Banquet earlier this month.  The George A. Beck Award is the highest chapter award given by Pi Lambda Phi Fraternity.

Realizing their members are first students, NY Phi Lambda made academics a priority for their chapter. By stressing the importance of academics through both Recruitment and New Member Education, this chapter looks for men committed to excelling both in and outside of the classroom. To further reinforce their commitment to academic excellence, the chapter conducts three academic workshops per semester to help brothers meet the minimum GPA requirement of a 2.75 cumulative.

Campus Engagement

NY Phi Lambda believes that as a chapter one of their goals is not just to improve their chapter but improve the overall quality of their campus. In order to do this, Brothers of this chapter actively participate in various campus organizations. In addition to requiring all members to get involved within at least one organization, Brothers of this chapter are also involved on campus as Resident Assistants, Orientation Leaders, Peer Assistant Leader, Commuter Assistant and various other on campus leadership positions.

Six out of seven resident halls have at least one Pilam serving in them as an RA. This past year NY Phi Lambda co-sponsored Relay for Life, which hosted hundreds of people in an effort to raise awareness and funds for the American Cancer Foundation. NY Phi Lambda also works hard to maintain positive relationships between the chapter and faculty and staff of the university. NY Phi Lambda prides itself on being one of the most active organizations on their campus.

Community Service & Philanthropy

NY Phi Lambda also excels in Community Service & Philanthropic work. This chapter requires that all members complete at least fifteen hours of community service each semester. Through this commitment, the chapter was able to participate in numerous service events. These include participating in "Adelphi Gives Back Month," a series of various community service events including "Pay it Forward" and "Up Till Dawn." Also, many brothers went above and beyond their chapter requirements by participating in nationally recognized community service organizations such as Circle K and C.A.L.I.B.E.R. In regards to Philanthropy NY Phi Lambda hosted multiple events to promote and support the Elimination of Prejudice.

The chapter raised over $1000 in support of the Elimination of Prejudice, along with supporting other national philanthropies including The American Cancer Society, The Ronald McDonald House and many Hurricane Sandy Relief Funds. Overall, this chapter contributed 1,255 hours to their community.


This past year, New York Phi Lambda saw consistent recruitment success. Starting with the fall semester the chapter had 100% acceptance, offering ten bids and having all ten accepted. They initiated eight new brothers during the fall and continued with a strong twelve man class and initiated ten men during spring semester.

NY Phi Lambda believes their recruitment success was directly related to their chapter wide emphasis on Dynamic Recruitment. The chapter promotes that their brothers become involved in the various leadership opportunities on campus. This has led to brothers meeting countless students and building relationships that eventually lead to men joining the chapter.

Risk Management

NY Phi Lambda makes Risk Management a top priority from early on during a member’s time within the organization. They have made Risk Management a core topic discussed throughout the New Member Education process by having the Vice President of Programming and Risk Management present this topic to the new members. To keep Risk Management a focus for the entire chapter they host a Risk Management Workshop within the first month of each semester during a chapter meeting and give consistent reminders that the chapter has zero tolerance for hazing.

New Member Education

NY Phi Lambda focuses on teaching New Members national history, values and traditions, as well as their local history, organizational needs and chapter culture. The primary goal of the program is to prepare the new members to successfully operate as full, active brothers immediately following initiation while installing the five expectations and obligations of every Brother. With continued success utilizing Pi Lambda Phi University, the Vice President of Education and Development was able to empower the chapter’s new members by having them plan various events hosted by the chapter, including an original philanthropy event supporting the Elimination of Prejudice.


This chapter went above and beyond during the Spring 2013 semester by showing true fraternalism when they hosted the Re-Founding Father retreat for the New York Beta Omicron colony from St. John’s University. As the most recently chartered chapter, brothers from the NY Phi Lambda chapter attended the retreat to share their valuable knowledge with the men from St. John’s University. They also gave their time to help initiate the thirty-three men.



The George A. Beck Outstanding Chapter award is presented annually to that Chapter of Pi Lambda Phi which has the most excellent Chapter Operations.
