Communication students admitted into Lambda Pi Eta National Communication Honor Society
Students inducted during NSU Multimedia Conference
On Jan. 28, six NSU communication students were inducted into the Upsilon Zeta chapter of Lambda Pi Eta. The induction ceremony, held during the NSU Multimedia Conference, aimed to honor undergraduate students who have declared an interest in the field of communication and have achieved a high level of academic excellence.
"I always look forward to the induction ceremony, because it gives us the chance to recognize the academic accomplishments and hard work of these majors,” said Faculty Adviser for Lambda Pi Eta and DWC Associate Professor Megan Fitzgerald. “We are so proud of their achievements and know that they are going to continue to do great things."
To be eligible for membership, students must have completed 60 semester hours in undergraduate credits and 12 in communication courses, have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and 3.25 in communication courses, be in the upper 35% of their graduating class, and be enrolled as a full-time student in good standing.
“Being inducted into Lambda Pi Eta Honor Society and recognized for all my hard work as a communication studies major was an incredible feeling,” said Tiara Baldoni, a communication alumna and inductee. “Knowing that all the time, late nights and stress finally paid off made it all worth it.”
The NSU chapter of Lambda Pi Eta has offered membership to eligible communication undergraduate students since 2006.
“I remember seeing peers of mine being inducted into the society some time ago and thinking about what a huge honor that was,” said junior communication student and inductee Michaela Greer. “So when I found out that I was going to be inducted, I was a bit surprised, but it felt good to know that my hard work was paying off and that I was noticed.”
