Non-traditional students inducted into honor society

Twenty non-traditional/adult students at SUNY Cortland have been elected to membership in Alpha Sigma Lambda on Wednesday, April 27. The university defines non-traditional students as undergraduate students who are 24 years of age or older or, regardless of age, may have dependent children, be working full time, have military experience or have made a break in education at some point after high school.

Recognizing academic achievements, they were elected to the honor society by the SUNY Cortland chapter, Lambda Omicron. The induction ceremony and dinner, which celebrated its 23rd year at SUNY Cortland, was held in Corey Union Exhibition Lounge. SUNY Cortland has inducted 692 student members over the past 23 years.

Alpha Sigma Lambda national standards indicate that students elected to membership are in the top 20 percent of all students at the university age 24 or older who have completed 24 credits of work at SUNY Cortland with a grade point average of 3.2 or better.  For the inductees to be in the top 20 percent of students at SUNY Cortland this year, they needed to have a grade point average of 3.7 or higher. The GPA range for this group of students inducted was 3.7 to 4.0.

Cheryl Smith, chapter councilor and coordinator of student outreach and non-traditional student support in Advisement and Transition, hosted the induction ceremony. President Erik J. Bitterbaum recognized the students, asking each how they came to attend SUNY Cortland. 

Honorary Alpha Sigma Lambda member Lori Schlicht, associate director for academic engagement in Advisement and Transition, explained the ideals of the honor society.
