Lambda Pi Eta was founded in 1985 by Dr. Stephen A. Smith of the University of Arkansas. The Speech Communication Association established Lambda Pi Eta as an affiliate organization and as the official national communication honor society for undergraduates in 1994. Lambda Pi Eta is composed of undergraduate students who have a strong interest in the communication field and have achieved academic excellence. Some requirements include completing the equivalent of 12 semester hours of courses in communication, having a grade point average of a 3.25 in these courses, and be in the upper 35% of their graduating class.
Ashland’s Lambda Pi Eta chapter, Alpha Alpha Rho, looks forward to exploring the unique opportunities associated with this honorary, and they look forward to inducting new members as the Communication Studies Department continues to grow. For more information about Lambda Pi Eta, contact Mr. Cody White, President of the Alpha Alpha Rho Chapter, Ashland University.
