Lambda Pi Eta

Lambda Pi Eta (LPH) is the communication honor society sponsored by the National Communication Association with over 500 chapters worldwide. CNU received its charter for the Sigma Kappa Chapter of LPH in 2004 under the leadership of Dr. Michaela Meyer.

Since its inception, Sigma Kappa developed a national as well as campus reputation for promoting the academic study of communication. Sigma Kappa received honor as Rookie Chapter of the Year in 2007 and as Chapter of the Year in 2009 and 2010.


LPH is a highly selective honor society whose membership consists of less than ten percent of the communication majors and minors at CNU. In order to be eligible for induction into LPH, students must meet the following requirements set forth by the Association of College Honor Societies:

  • have completed a minimum of 60 semester hours of course credit
  • have completed a minimum of 12 semester hours of communication courses
  • have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • have a GPA for communication courses of 3.25 or higher
  • be enrolled as a student at CNU in good standing

At the beginning of each semester, the faculty advisor sends invitations that contain information on the application process to all students who are eligible for membership in LPH.
