Description: The Voice of the Adult Student – ASL Alpha Chi: Celebrating 50 Years of Academic Excellence is a digital exhibit tracing the first years of Alpha Chi, the 45th Chapter of the Alpha Sigma Lambda National Honor Society for Non-Traditional and Adult students at Pitt. The exhibit showcases photos, newspaper clippings, and archival documents chronicling events through the 1970s, with special emphasis on the period between 1971-1975.  

The exhibit tells the story of the chapter's founding members, highlighting their efforts that led to establishing a strong student cabinet and the Alpha Chi chapter, as well as the many individuals (students, staff, and faculty) who advocated for the non-traditional student at Pitt.
