The fall 2023 Lambda Pi Eta cohort.

Lambda Pi Eta, the honor society for communication majors, held their fall 2023 Induction Ceremony on Dec. 5. Lambda Pi Eta welcomed 43 new members in the fall 2023 cohort. Students must be invited by the LPH adviser, Jake Dionne, to become members of the honor society after meeting the academic requirements.

To be invited to be a member of Lambda Pi Eta, students must have completed 60 semester credit-hours with a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA and completed 12 semester credit-hours in communication studies with a minimum 3.25 GPA. Students in LPH are in the top 35% of their class and are encouraged to develop their studies through undergraduate research.  

At the ceremony, LPH officers President Ally Holsted and Treasurer Alicen Grindstaff gave speeches addressing the new members, family, friends and department faculty in attendance. Their speeches featured their contributions to the U of A Lambda Pi Eta chapter and the opportunities that the honor society has provided them. 

The new members, officers, alumni and faculty engaged in an uplifting discussion about opportunities seized and opportunities ahead of them, thanks to their participation in LPH, internships and the U of A Department of Communication.

The original chapter of Lambda Pi Eta began at the U of A in 1985 under the direction of professor Steve Smith. It was subsequently chartered into a national organization, receiving 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 teachings of rhetoric. They include Logos (Lambda), Pathos (Pi) and Ethos (Eta). Currently, Lambda Pi Eta has more than 500 active chapter affiliates worldwide.
