Community Service is an extremely important part of Lambda Theta Alpha. This is when we have a chance to give back to those who gave to us.

Beta Alpha Chapter's goal this year was to develop a chapter philanthropy and increase the number of community services we participate in. Well, we succeeded in both. Our chapter philanthropy is Habitat for Humanity; and due to our hard work, our National Board honored us with the Outstanding Community Service Award.

It reads:

We were also recognized by the University of Hartford for our work. There is an awards, "Women making a difference," which we were nominate for. Out of eighty students, we were the only organization and one of the five finalist along with our beautiful sister, Luanda.
