FSU Chapter of Lambda Pi Eta grows by the dozens

The Florida State University Chapter of Lambda Pi Eta (LPH), the official communication studies honor society of the National Communication Association (NCA), has grown to nearly 70 members from a mere 6 actives in September 2014.

Lambda Pi Eta was founded in 1985 at the University of Arkansas with foundations in logic (Lambda), emotion (Pi), and character credibility and ethics (Eta). There are over four hundred active chapters at four-year colleges and universities worldwide. Florida State University members must have a 3.5 GPA or higher and be a Communication (COMM) or Communication Science & Disorders (SCSD) major in the College of Communication and Information with a minimum of 15 completed hours in the respective curriculum.

Andrew Brady of the FSU Office of Institutional Research greatly facilitated the outreach for FSU Lambda Pi Eta by crunching tens of thousands of numbers to create a spreadsheet of eligible students in the college. After calculating potential members by GPA and credit hours, Brady created a list of students with their email addresses.

“We sent emails to folks who qualified and the rest is history, I suppose,” Group Advisor, Dr. Davis Houck said. Under the leadership of Kyndal Wiewel, FSU’s chapter of Lambda Pi Eta emphasizes service work under the three C’s: Community, College and Campus.
