How Can You Get Involved?
Understanding the Chrysanthemum
As you know, the chrysanthemum is the Fraternity flower. But what does it signify? The roots are alumni who provide a strong foundation. The stem represents current members who contribute the framework for new and continual growth. And student members are the blossoms who will grow, develop, and flourish from the support of the roots and stem.
We encourage members to branch out and make their dedication to LKS fully bloom by actively contributing to the framework of their own personal and professional growth. From your local chapter to the national level, LKS offers many opportunities for student members to flourish!
Become a Leader
Future employers desire candidates who possess not only academic knowledge but who also have real-life experiences leading others and working as a team.
Through your chapter, you have many opportunities to develop project-management and team-building skills. Members can offer to oversee a fund-raiser supporting our national philanthropy, Project HOPE, or maybe host a professional seminar for the campus and community focusing on our Women’s Health Issue topic of reproductive health.
Eventually, consider applying for a national committee position!
Become a Chapter Officer
Expand your leadership role even more by running for one of your chapter’s elected positions. It’s a terrific opportunity for you to guide your chapter’s members in participating in leadership programs, volunteering, and events on campus and in your community.

Utilize the LKS Educational Grants Program
The Lambda Kappa Sigma Educational Trust was established in 1974 for the purposes of perpetuating a financial program to assist members in reaching their goals in pharmaceutical education. Each year, the Educational Trust offers grants for undergraduate and graduate students. The application deadline is January 15th annually. It is important for chapter leaders to encourage members to apply for these grants.
