HU inducts 14 students into Alpha Chi Honor Society

Huntington University inducted 14 new members into the Indiana Beta Chapter of Alpha Chi during a convocation held September 30 at the university. 

“Membership in Alpha Chi is the highest academic honor at Huntington University and represents both a recognition of scholastic achievement and a commitment to promoting academic excellence and integrity on and off campus as well as service,” said Dr. Ruth Nalliah, faculty sponsor of Alpha Chi and professor of chemistry.

The Indiana Beta Chapter of Alpha Chi National College Honor Scholarship Society was established in 1967 and is one of more than 300 chapters in Alpha Chi. It is active in the regional and national activities of Alpha Chi and was named the National Chapter of the Year in 2001 and 2015.
