The National Communication Honor Society, Lambda Pi Eta, now has an official chapter here at Regent University. On Friday, February 13th, the new LPE faculty adviser met with several students to finalize the details of this society. All of this is due to the efforts of senior Alicia Mathis.
Alicia has been diligently working to make this chapter a reality since this time last year. And despite multiple changes in faculty advisory, as well as transitions in the student services department, Alicia and faculty adviser Dr. Kevin Crawford have made the start of this student organization official.
So what does this mean for all you communication majors out there?
Upon joining, students will have the opportunity to learn about potential internships, get the chance to network and develop their resumes, as well as get the chance to wear Lamba Pi Eta honor cords and pins at graduation. Yes, even for students graduating this semester. Finally, and perhaps the most important benefit, is that once you become a member you are a member for life.
If you are interested in joining, all you need to have are the following qualifications:
- Have completed over 60 credit hours,
- Have completed a minimum of 12 credit hours (4 courses) in the Undergraduate Communication (COMM) program at Regent,
- Have at least an overall 3.00 GPA,
- And have at least a 3.25 overall GPA among your Undergraduate Communication (COMM) Courses taken at Regent.
The official new officers of Lambda Pi Eta are Alicia Mathis serving as President, Charlie Jones as Vice President, Brandon Vera as Secretary, and Hannah Clark as Treasurer.
