181st Annual Meeting of the Lambda Iota Society

Saturday, October 7, 2017

Over the last year, UVM has taken significant decisive actions against Greek houses on campus. The BOG is interpreting this as a clear sign that the university intends to cut ties with fraternal/sororal groups in the not-too-distant future. On these grounds, we are preparing a plan to move forward as Lambda Iota Society, with or without a formal undergraduate affiliation with UVM Greek Life. Details of this plan will be discussed at our annual meeting. The schedule is below.

10:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
Open House and Tours

12:30 p.m.–1:30 p.m.
Society Luncheon
(Lunch by donation)

1:30 p.m.–2:30 p.m.
Annual Business Meeting
The Annual Business Meeting will include a presentation from the Board of Governors regarding the operating plan for the foreseeable future.

2:30 p.m.–3:30 p.m.
Annual Chapter Room Meeting

3:30 p.m.–5:00 p.m.
Society Social and Cocktail Hour
(Cash bar)

Please note that there are no events scheduled for Friday this year. However, if you’re in town and would like to stop by to see the Nest, Owls are always welcome to visit. Just identify yourself as a brother, and please be mindful of Mansfield Hall’s alcohol- and tobacco-free policy.

About Lambda Iota

Lambda Iota Society, the oldest local student society in the nation, stands as a notable part of Burlington's and UVM's history.

The society was formed in 1836 by a group of 13 students in protest of a campus ban on smoking.

Members were Byron-esque poets and fledgling writers--much like the group in the popular movie The Dead Poets Society.
