Lambda Pi Eta Honor Society


Lambda Pi Eta (LPH) is the official communication studies honor society of the National Communication Association (NCA). There are more than 400 active chapters at four-year colleges and universities worldwide.

LPH was founded in 1985 at the University of Arkansas. LPH became a part of the National Communication Association (NCA) in 1988, and the official honor society of the NCA in July 1995. LPH represents what Aristotle described in his book, Rhetoric, as the three ingredients of persuasion: Logos (Lambda) meaning logic, Pathos (Pi) relating to emotion, and Ethos (Eta) defined as character credibility and ethics.

To be eligible to join the FSU chapter of Lambda Pi Eta Honor Society, a student must be a Communication major or a Communication Science & Disorders major with a minimum of 15 hours completed in the major and a 3.5 GPA overall.

In addition, students must have completed 60 hours of coursework overall, with no grades of D or F, no grade of Unsatisfactory on a pass/fail course, and no more than one Incomplete.
