National Communication Honors Society

Lambda Pi Eta was founded in 1985 at the University of Arkansas. The National Communication Association established LPH as an affiliate organization and as the official national communication honor society for undergraduates in 1995. In February, 1996, Lambda Pi Eta was certified by the Association of College Honor Societies. Now, there are nearly 500 chapters worldwide. Our chapter at UofSC Aiken, the Nu Rho Chapter, was established in 2001 by Dr. Charmaine Wilson at the urging of student Jason J. Hancock.

To be invited for membership, students must have earned at least 60 hours and have a GPA of at least a 3.0. In addition, students must have completed at least 12 hours in communication and have earned at least a 3.25 in those classes.

Students will be able to participate in a public speaking competition. Each section of Public Speaking (COMM 241) will send two representatives, selected by the professor and/or student votes from that section, to compete. The speech should be persuasive and focus on a policy change. Students must also prepare an outline to be submitted, alongside the 7-10 minute speech.
