COVID-19 Updates

Our guidelines have been updated for this coming fall.

Honor and Recognition Societies

The idea which underlies the honor societies in American colleges and universities is threefold.

They exist primarily to recognize the attainment of scholarship of a superior quality. In the second place, a few societies recognize the development of leadership qualities, character, and good campus citizenship in addition to a strong secondary scholarship record. In the third place, and to the degree that they make this recognition a thing to be coveted, they encourage the production of superior scholarship and leadership.
