The new chapter at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee joined the ALD family on October 12, 2013.
University of Wisconsin Milwaukee Milwaukee, Wisconsin October 12, 2013 Installed by Michelle Gross It was a chilly, rainy, Saturday afternoon in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on October 12, 2013. The gloomy weather did not take away from the excitement and pride that was definitely present in the Fireside Lounge of the University Union on the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) campus. This weekend also happened to be the annual Parentâ€™s Weekend celebration at UWM, making it an ideal time to have an installation ceremony. Numerous family members and guests of the students watched as Michelle Gross, Professional MemberAt-Large, installed a chapter of Alpha Lambda Delta at the second largest institution in the state of Wisconsin. Fifty-seven students were initiated along Alpha Lambda Delta
with six honorary members at this, the fifth chapter of Alpha Lambda Delta in Wisconsin. Before the ceremony, Michelle met with the Chapter advisor, Colin Daly, along with chapter officers Evan Braun, President, Kate Young, Vice President, Scarlett Young, Secretary, Kelley Moran, Treasurer, and Danielle Stobb, Editor. Colin serves as the Assistant Director of First Year Student Success at UWM. Samantha Glazer, Graduate Assistant of First Year Student Success, was also assisting in the set-up of the ceremony. The Fireside Lounge was a very cozy location to have the ceremony, featuring couches and stuffed chairs as the seats of choice for the student initiates. After the new initiates were given their insignia pins and certificates, they signed the chapter roll. Next, Ms. Gross installed the honorary members. Bronce Adam, Amanda Brittain, and Ciera
Lewis are all peer mentors who received an honorary membership. Samantha Glazer and Colin Daly were also initiated as honorary members. Finally, Dr. Tim Gordon, the Dean of Students at UWM, having just started his position on July 1, 2013, received his honorary certificate. The new officers of the UWM chapter of Alpha Lambda Delta took their oath of office, and the President, Evan Braun, provided a very motivating speech to provide their chapter with a strong start to their membership in Alpha Lambda Delta. Dr. Tim Gordon shared some inspirational and motivational words before the ceremony came to an end. Michelle Gross thanked everyone for coming to the event and shared her pride in another Wisconsin chapter joining Alpha Lambda Delta. The new members of Alpha Lambda Delta took a group picture in the main stairwell of the UWM University Union to commemorate the event.
