Honor Society + Student Awards - Coastal Carolina University
In This Section

Lambda Pi Eta is the honor society from the National Communication Association. The chapter at Coastal Carolina University is Upsilon Eta.

Lambda Pi Eta is an invitation-only honor society, meaning you can be invited to join by your instructors in the Department of Communication, Media, & Culture if you meet the following criteria:

  • Be currently enrolled at Coastal Carolina University and in good-standing
  • Be in the upper 35% of your academic class
  • Have completed 60 credit hours total
  • Have completed 12 credit hours in COMM, JOUR, and/or PRSC courses
  • Have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.00 overall
  • Have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.25 for all COMM, JOUR, and/or PRSC courses

Because the honor society's members are the students faculty consider most deserving to be honored, members must also exhibit high standards of personal and professional character and support the purposes of the honor society.

The name Lambda Pi Eta represents the first letters of what Aristotle described in The Rhetoric as the three modes of persuasion—Logos (logic), Pathos (emotion), and Ethos (ethics).
