1. Academic excellence - Ensuring that our brothers earn their degree is a main focus within Lambda Sigma Upsilon. We believe that our brothers will go beyond the extra mile to ensure that all academic goals are achieved.
2. Cultural awareness and diversity - Lambda Sigma Upsilon maintains a strong emphasis on cultural awareness. We do not go by a typical "Greek" system (Alpha, Beta, etc.); rather we let each new chapter create its own identity, ensuring that their legacy is passed down. The diversity of the fraternity is very evident amongst our brotherhood. Over 40 countries are represented in Lambda Sigma Upsilon, thus making LSU one of the most diverse fraternities in the country.
3. Brotherhood - LSU prides itself on its unique and diverse brotherhood. Brotherhood provides not only a group of individuals a sense of family away from home; it helps individuals gain a new perspective on college life. Brotherhood also provides various networking opportunities with individuals who share common interests.
4. Being role models to the community - Lambda Sigma Upsilon is well known for its service to the campus community and the community-at-large. Various projects include a charity basketball game vs. the New York Giants and Jersey City Police Department, AIDS Walk NY and NJ, NetAid Global Campaign for Education, and the American Red Cross Remembers September 11th Campaign.
