Samford will induct approximately 120 freshman into the Alpha Lambda Delta (ALD) national honor society March 25.

Founded in 1924, ALD seeks to "encourage superior academic achievement... to promote intelligent living and a continued high standard of learning, and to assist students in recognizing and developing meaningful goals for their unique roles in society."

Membership in the organization is awarded to students who earn a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or better and rank in the top 20 percent of their class during their first term of full-time college enrollment. For Samford’s freshman class, that meant that the 2015-2016 initiates earned grade point averages of 3.69 or better.
