Alpha Chi Honor Society holds fall 2017 induction

The Texas Nu chapter of Alpha Chi National Honor Society held its fall induction in early November. The organization inducted students from the San Antonio, Houston and Rio Grande Valley campuses as well as online students.

During the ceremony, Cullen Grinnan, PhD, associate professor of Education, served as the keynote speaker. Elizabeth Dyer, PhD, assistant professor of music, and OLLU’s women’s quartet, the Sweet Adelines, provided live entertainment.

The Texas Nu Chapter of Alpha Chi was founded at OLLU in 1922. It was the 13th chapter to be established. Although the national society has invited graduate students to join since 2007, this was the first year that graduate students were invited to join at OLLU. Consequently, the chapter accepted 95 students – the largest group of initiates at OLLU.

For those students interested in joining the Alpha Chi Honor Society, the OLLU Texas Nu chapter automatically emails invitations to eligible candidates each fall. Students must be a junior, senior or graduate student and in the top 10 percent of their class to be invited to join.

The Texas Nu chapter would like to express its gratitude to the following groups that helped make this year successful:

  • Student Leadership and Development
  • Student Government Association
  • Events Services
  • Accounts Payable
  • Houston campus staff
  • Rio Grande Valley staff
  • Marketing and Communications
  • Alpha Chi national office staff
