Lambda Pi Eta
Lambda Pi Eta (LPE) is the official communication studies honor society of the National Communication Association. LPE was founded at the University of Arkansas in 1985 and has grown into a national organization with more than 400 active chapters at colleges and universities across the country. After it reached a reasonable size, LPE became a member of the Association of College Honor Societies.
The Communication Department historically inducted senior majors who finished an honors thesis into LPE. This was an appropriate way to recognize a significant academic accomplishment, but it meant the department was inducting majors at the very moment they graduated and left the Heights.
In an effort to make our chapter more active, the department changed when we inducted new members in 2009. Rather than waiting until students finish the honors program, eligible majors will be inducted when they start taking honors classes. This means the department will be inviting our very best majors to join LPE during their junior year with the hope that they will decide to write a thesis their senior year. Under the new scheme, everyone in the honors program will be eligible for LPE and those who complete a thesis will graduate with department honors.
