ALEXANDRIA - LSUA's commitment to excellence and inclusivity in online education was on display this past week with the inaugural induction event of the Chi Chapter of Omega Nu Lambda (ONL), the only national collegiate honor society exclusively dedicated to online students. Led by Amber Weidner, LSUA's Learner Support Coordinator, the induction ceremony welcomed 67 new members into the prestigious society, marking a significant milestone in recognizing the academic achievements of LSUA's 100% online students.

Omega Nu Lambda (ONL) celebrates academic excellence among full-time online students who have demonstrated outstanding commitment to their studies. To qualify for membership, students must be enrolled in a 100% online degree program, have completed a minimum of 15 credit hours at LSUA online, and maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher. The inaugural class of ONL members comprises students from all five academic colleges at LSUA, representing a diverse array of disciplines and backgrounds.

Amber Weidner, LSUA Learning Support Coordinator, spoke of the new chapter, “I am incredibly proud of our first cohort of ONL students for their unwavering dedication to their studies. Establishing the Chi chapter at LSUA fosters a sense of community and belonging amongst our online student community, while also celebrating the achievements of this diverse group of students.”

Founded with the mission of fostering a supportive community and recognizing the achievements of online learners, Omega Nu Lambda offers a range of benefits to its members, including scholarship opportunities, networking events, and access to resources designed to enhance the online learning experience. By acknowledging the academic accomplishments of online students, ONL aims to create a sense of belonging and camaraderie among members, empowering them to thrive in their educational journey.

With 23 chapters nationwide, Omega Nu Lambda provides a platform for students to connect, collaborate, and succeed. LSUA's Chi Chapter adds to this legacy, reinforcing the university's commitment to serving the diverse needs of its online student community and ensuring their academic success.
