ACADEMIC HONORS SOCIETIES

Lambda Pi Eta (LPH) has over 400 active chapters at four-year colleges and universities worldwide. LPH was founded in 1985 at the University of Arkansas. It became a part of the National Communication Association in 1988, and the association’s official honor society in July 1995.

LPH is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS) whose mission is to build a visibly cohesive community of national and international honor societies, individually and collaboratively exhibiting excellence in scholarship, service, programs, and governance.

Founded in 1897 at the University of Maine, Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest, largest, and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines. Its chapters are on more than 300 campuses in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. Each year, approximately 30,000 members are initiated.

Juniors must have completed at least seventy-two credit hours and rank scholastically in the top 7.5 percent (or higher depending on local chapter standards) of their class. Seniors must rank in the top 10 percent (or higher depending on local chapter standards) of their class.

Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Golden Key has been synonymous with excellence. The world’s largest honor society, and the only one to be based on a foundation of Academics, Leadership and Service, Golden Key was founded November 29, 1977, at Georgia State University in Atlanta.
