Phi Delta Lambda

Phi Delta Lambda logo-01

Phi Delta Lambda was founded in the 1940s as the international honor society of the colleges and universities of the Church of the Nazarene. Trevecca’s Phi Delta Lambda chapter, Zeta, is comprised of graduating seniors with a GPA of at least 3.80 and who are in the top 15 percent of their class. An induction dinner is held the Friday before graduation when each recipient receives a certificate of membership and a Phi Delta Lambda Zeta chapter pin to wear at graduation

The organization has a dual purpose: to create an atmosphere of scholarship and camaraderie among graduates in the academic institutions of the Church of the Nazarene as well as promote ideals of academic achievement, character and Christian service. A love of wisdom and commitment to righteousness are also emphasized above all else. It is the hope of Trevecca that the students who achieve this distinction will embody these characteristics with fervor as they leave The Hill and move on to whatever God has called them to next.

A PDL Endowed Scholarship fund has been established to yield scholarships to high achieving, outstanding junior class members who are also first-generation college students. Selected recipients must have a GPA of 3.75 or higher. Recipients must also demonstrate the PDL tenets of wisdom, righteousness, and service.
