Phi Eta Sigma

What is Phi Eta Sigma?
Phi Eta Sigma is a national honor society for college freshmen. Our goal is to encourage and reward academic excellence among first year students in institutions of higher learning. The oldest and largest freshman honor society, Phi Eta Sigma was founded at the University of Illinois on March 22, 1923. We now have more than 300 chapters throughout the United States and more than 625,000 inducted members.

Who is eligible to join?
All first year students are eligible to join who have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.5 for the first semester of their first year. Invitation letters are sent to all eligible students in mid-February of each year.

What you get for your membership fee:
Your membership fee pays for your academic key or tie tac and your membership certificate, as well as a portion of the cost for the induction ceremony reception. The national magazine, the Forum of Phi Eta Sigma, and the study pamphlet, Hints on Learning Studying, are provided to you on a complimentary basis. Additionally, a portion goes to national and local scholarship funds.
