Welcome to Lambda Kappa Sigma of Ferris State University! 

 

Lambda Kappa Sigma girls are we
To thee we give our very best
In the face of joys and sorrows we'll be true
To our dear old colors gold and blue
You have set the pace for us we know
And we will strive to follow through
Fortune and fame we know you'll gain
And loyal to you we'll remain.

 

Wishing you a happy and healthy semester!

Meeting Details

What else should people know about your meetings? Do you only meet once a month? Do attendees need to be added to an agenda? Is the location hard to find? If attendees need ADA accommodations, whom should they contact?

Lambda Kappa Sigma meets every Monday of the semester. If there are no classes on a Monday due to holidays such as Martin Luther King Day, we generally meet the Tuesday following for an informal meeting. All meetings are mandatory for members unless expressly stated otherwise. There are also other mandatory events throughout the semester that are further explained during the associating process.

The dress code for our meetings is business attire.

The length of the meetings depend on the time in the semester and upcoming events but average length is 1.5 hours.

Selection Process

If your organization has selective membership, please describe the selection process. This may include a GPA requirement, try-outs, degree program, etc.

To become a member of Lambda Kappa Sigma, a potential new member must be a Pre-Pharmacy or Pharmacy student. An average grade point of 2.5 is required for all potential new members. Upon attending an open recruitment event, the potential new member will fill out a Q and A and then have an interview. After that, they begin their orientation period with the help of their Big Sister and lamb pals, fellow new member candidates, and LKS sisters. Membership orientation lasts approximately 5 weeks, and upon completion, the New Member Candidate is initiated to Lambda Kappa Sigma and transitions to Collegiate member status. After becoming a collegiate member a GPA of 2.0 must be maintained to be a member in good standing.

What do you want people to know about your group?

Why should people join? What makes your group special? What will students gain by being a member?

Lambda Kappa Sigma provides opportunities to network with Professional and pre-pharmacy students as well as alumni who are upstanding leaders in the profession of pharmacy. We also provide varied community service opportunities in the Big Rapids community. Each year we host a speaker to discuss various women's health topics, which will be held in the new pharmacy facility in Grand Rapids this year.

Philanthropy

Does your group have a fundraising, volunteer, or service initiative? Do you consistently work with a non profit organization?

Project HOPE is our official philanthropy. HOPE stands for Health Opportunities for People Everywhere. Since 1958, Project HOPE has worked to make health care available for people around the globe. They are committed to long-term sustainable health care. Their work includes educating health professionals and community health workers, strengthening health facilities, fighting diseases such as TB, HIV/AIDS and diabetes and providing humanitarian assistance through donated medicines, medical supplies and volunteer medical help.

We raise money for Project HOPE by selling refreshments in the Pharmacy building daily and hosting an annual College of Pharmacy Chili Cook Off. Please contact Andrea McCarty at mccarta8@ferris.edu if you are interested in participating in either of these events.
