Lambda Pi Eta Background
Lambda Pi Eta (LPH) is the official communication studies honor society of the National Communication Association (NCA). With more than 400 active chapters at four-year colleges and universities worldwide, LPH represents what Aristotle described in his book Rhetoric as the three ingredients of persuasion: Logos (Lambda) meaning logic, Pathos (Pi) relating to emotion, and Ethos (Eta) defined as character credibility and ethics.

To be eligible for membership, however, students must have completed 60 semester hours in undergraduate credit courses; have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0; have completed the equivalent of 12 semester hours in courses in communication; have a grade point average of at least 3.25 in these courses; and be currently enrolled as a full-time student in good standing with their institution.  All persons considered for membership shall exhibit high standards of personal and professional character and shall support the purposes of the honor society.
