A Georgia Baptist Institution
|PI KAPPA LAMBDA|
The primary objective of PI KAPPA LAMBDA is the recognition and encouragement of the highest level of musical achievement and academic scholarship. The Society is convinced that, by recognizing and honoring persons who have enhanced their talents by serious, diligent, and intelligent study, others will be stimulated to do the same. Moreover, the Society feels that it serves the interest of the student capable of meeting its criteria by granting a charter to institutions that provide the atmosphere conducive to musical achievement and academic virtue.
PI KAPPA LAMBDA was organized in 1918 at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois with a charter granted by the State of Illinois.The first chapter, Alpha, elected as its first member Peter Christian Lutkin, Dean of the School of Music. His initials in their Greek equivalent - Pi Kappa Lambda - provided the name of the Society. There are more than 200 active chapters. In 1940 the Society of PI KAPPA LAMBDA was admitted to the Association of College Honor Societies as the representative in the field of music. The Epsilon Beta Chapter at Shorter University was established on April 25, 1981.
