Membership of ALD is invitational, and this life-long connection is offered to freshmen who excel academically. During the spring semester, selected freshmen who have earned a spot in the top 20% of their class will receive an invitational e-mail. If a student decides to join this prestigious honor society, then he or she will pay a one-time life membership due ($50) and attend the induction ceremony during the spring semester (parents are welcome!).
ALD is the perfect platform for becoming more involved on Clemson's campus as well as in the local community. As a service-based organization, ALD works to give back to those in need through numerous service projects and fundraisers. ALD has even sponsored several in-house service projects that members have personally created and executed in order to contribute to the community. In addition to service projects, ALD is a wonderful way to meet other Clemson students that are academically driven.
