Phi Beta Lambda – Athens State University

Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) is open to all majors of Athens State University. This association assists students preparing for careers in business and business-related fields. Membership meets once per month during the regular university calendar. We make every effort to have a guest speaker to discuss interesting or useful topics and food is usually served. Currently, membership dues are $25 per year. The goals of the club are:

  • Develop competent, aggressive business leadership.
  • Strengthen the confidence of students in themselves and their work.
  • Create more interest in and understanding of American business enterprise.
  • Encourage members in the development of individual projects that contribute to the improvement of home, business, and community.
