Historical Note

Phi Eta Sigma was founded at the University of Illinois in 1923 as an academic honor society for freshman students. North Carolina State's chapter was granted on 16 May, 1930, with the distinction of being both the 12th chapter nationally, and the first within the state of North Carolina (because of this, NC State's chapter was for a peroid of time known as the "Alpha Chapter of North Carolina"). Membership is open to those students who achieve a 3.5 GPA or better (on a 4.0 scale) during their first undergraduate semester. NC State's Phi Eta Sigma chapter remained active as of 2008.
