On April 5, 2019, Holy Family University’s School of Arts and Sciences inducted 62 new students into six different Honor Society Chapters. The Chapters that were inducting these students included Alpha Phi Sigma, Kappa Mu Epsilon, Lambda Pi Eta, Phi Alpha Theta, Psi Chi, and Beta Beta Beta.
The Dean of Arts and Sciences, Dr. Shelly Robbins, began the night with a brief speech that highlighted th_e societies and the great opportunities that the new members would experience. After the speech was completed, the new inductees along with their families and friends, went up to an assigned room to have their respective Chapters host their own induction ceremony. Once the ceremony was completed, the new members were able to take pictures with their family and other members.
According to new Lambda Pi Eta member, Daniel Ortiz, he was excited but nervous for the induction.
“I am getting inducted with some people that are on the same level as me”, said Ortiz.
When asked what advice he would give to the new future inductees, Ortiz said, “It takes a dedication to get better, studying a lot, asking questions, and maintaining focus.”
In order to qualify for each Honor Society Chapter, a student must have a certain number of credits, maintains a high GPA for their field of study and cumulative GPA, and needs to be a student in good standing at Holy Family.
