Alpha Chi National Honor Society


Alpha Chi logo

Alpha Chi is a prestigious national honor society open to the top 10% of Juniors and Seniors academically. Membership is by invitation only.

Since 1922, Alpha Chi has been promoting academic excellence and exemplary character among college and university students—and honoring those who achieve such distinction. As a national honor society, Alpha Chi provides many opportunities for leadership, as well as undergraduate and graduate scholarships. In fact, Alpha Chi typically awards $60,000 a year in 26 scholarships and fellowships to individual members. The society also publishes the Recorder, a scholarly journal for student publications, and offers conventions for students to gain valuable experience in presenting their work, as well as win cash prizes.

In 2015, Shorter Alpha Chi members attended the convention in Chicago, and we had one national presentation winner, two scholarship winners, and one student elected to national office. Shorter University students have thus achieved four national awards, as well as three national scholarships in the past six years. Alpha Chi is a great accomplishment—and a key differentiator for honorees in their future endeavors. Faculty sponsor, Dr. Kathi Vosevich, emphasizes, “The honor society not only promotes academic excellence, but also exemplary character. These students are truly among the best of the best.” In 2015, Shorter University was also recognized as a Star Chapter for the SIXTH year in a row.
