Sigma Lambda Alpha

This Chapter and The Honor Society's primary purpose is to give formal recognition of scholarship to students in Landscape Architecture. The recognition of achievement by students, faculty, and professionals is through election to membership. It is open to scholars of character from the Landscape Architecture Program at Oklahoma State University, and its activities are designed to serve creatively as The Society strives for the realization of its motto: "Scholar, architect of the land, embrace the whole of nature and art; fit mankind to the earth and the earth to mankind."

Further, the Chapter and Society endeavor to emphasize leadership and character and to strive for the improvement of the Landscape Architectural Profession, also to preserve valuable traditions and customs and to foster a spirit of amiability among those who have displayed a marked ability in this environmental design discipline.

While the primary purpose of the Chapter and Society is to give formal recognition to scholarship, it encourages its members to be of service to the school, to promote high ideals in landscape architecture education; and to provide a collegiate organization which might assist in worth endeavors for the benefit of the profession of landscape architecture. The social functions of the chapter are incidental, and may occur in connection with installations or initiations, dinners, meetings, lectures, exhibitions of work, awarding of prizes, etc.
