The Georgia Southern University chapter of the Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society recently inducted 242 new members. To become a member of Phi Eta Sigma, a student must earn a GPA of 3.5 or greater during their freshmen year at the University.
“Membership in Phi Eta Sigma recognizes the elements of an unimpeachable character, a body that is well cared for and a well-disciplined mind,” said Christopher Caplinger, faculty advisor to the chapter and director of the University’s First Year Experience program. “Once inducted, individuals are members for life.”
Phi Eta Sigma was founded at the University of Illinois in 1923, and a chapter was established at Georgia Southern in 1991. There are chapters at more than 330 institutions.
