About Lambda Iota

Lambda Iota Society, the oldest local student society in the nation, stands as a notable part of Burlington's and UVM's history. The society was formed in 1836 by a group of 13 students in protest of a campus ban on smoking. Members were Byron-esque poets and fledgling writers--much like the group in the popular movie The Dead Poets Society.
