Honor Societies

Miami is home to over 20 recognized honorary societies on campus. Honor societies differ from general registered student organizations in that they recognize and provide membership to students who meet specific criteria set forth by their national advisory board, and require formal invitations to join. Each has its own set of eligibility requirements, focuses, and benefits.

Benefits of Joining an Honor Society:

  • Connecting with other high achieving students at Miami University and other institutions.
  • Becoming more involved in the university community.
  • Developing leadership skills.
  • Affiliating with a nationally-recognized organization.
