If you have a strong academic record, you may be invited to join the University’s chapter of Lambda Pi Eta National Communication Honor Society. The original chapter of this organization was begun at the University of Arkansas in 1985 under the direction of Dr. Steve Smith and subsequently it was chartered into a national organization, which received the official sanction of the National Communication Association. The name, Lambda Pi Eta, represents the first letters in Greek of the three types of proofs that Aristotle presented in his teaching and writing in Rhetoric: Logos (Lambda), Pathos (Pi), and Ethos (Eta). Currently, Lambda Pi Eta has over 400 chapter affiliates worldwide.
You may qualify for our chapter if you meet all of the following qualifications:
(1) Completed 60 semester credit-hours with a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA
(2) Completed 12 semester credit-hours in communication studies with a minimum 3.25 GPA
The purposes of the Communication Honor Society are as follows:
- To recognize, foster, and reward outstanding scholastic achievement in communication studies
- To stimulate interest in the field of communication
- To promote and encourage professional development among communication majors
- To provide an opportunity to discuss and exchange ideas in the field of communication
- To establish and maintain closer relationships and mutual understanding between speech communication studies faculty and students
- To explore options for graduate education in communication studies
In the past, the Alpha Chapter has sponsored distinguished lectures, hosted social events for students and faculty, and raised funds for students to travel to present their research at regional and national conferences.
