Stevenson University's department of communication will soon induct new members into Lambda Pi Eta, the National Communication Association’s official honor society at four-year colleges and universities. According to the LPH website, LPH has more than 500 active chapters at national four-year colleges and universities. The organization became a part of the National Communication Association in 1988, and the association's official honor society in July 1995. It is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies.
LPH represents what Aristotle described in his Rhetoric as three ingredients of persuasion: logos (Lambda), or logic; pathos (Pi), relating to emotion; and ethos (Eta), character and ethics.
At Stevenson, Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus is the organization's advisor and helps to guide club members and officers in planning and executing the annual induction ceremony, which will be held in the afternoon on April 25 in the Rockland banquet room. Student officers are in charge of the induction ceremony.
Students are invited to join based on their grades. According to the LPH website, "Student membership requires a 3.0 cumulative GPA with 60 semester or 90 quarter credit hours completed and a 3.25 GPA for Communication Studies courses with 12 semester or 18 quarter credit hours completed."
