Alpha Kappa Delta

Alpha Kappa Delta is an international sociology honor society. Loyola University Chicago's Alpha Kappa Delta chapter was started in 1928. Sociology students inducted into AKD must be advanced students with demonstrated excellence in both the major and the university at large. New initiates join a long line of distinguished sociology students at Loyola and around the world. Each initiate receives a lifetime membership certificate and a year's subscription to AKD's journal, Sociological Inquiry. Graduating AKD members receive AKD cords, which they wear proudly during graduation ceremonies.‌
