A chapter of Lambda Pi Eta, a national honorary society for communication students, has formed at Miami University. Charter members were inducted November 16.

Lambda Pi Eta recognizes communication students who are exceptional within the field, have earned outstanding scholastic achievement in communication studies and are leaders in the department.

Members will network with communication students, faculty and professionals as well as work with other campus organizations to foster relationships between communications and other areas of study.

As one of its first activities, Lambda Pi Eta will co-sponsor a visit by an intellectual property lawyer next semester with PRSSA (Public Relations Student Society of America). “Lambda Pi Eta is a great organization for students in the communications field who have a genuine passion for their major,” said Lauren Warner, president.

Lambda Pi Eta is the official communication studies honor society of the National Communication Association and has nearly 420 active chapters at colleges and universities worldwide. It was founded in 1985 at the University of Arkansas.

To be eligible, members of Lambda Pi Eta must have completed 60 credit hours in addition to 12 hours of communications courses. Students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and a communication GPA of 3.25 and demonstrate a commitment to the field of communications.
