EAC awarded chapter in the Honor Society of the National Communication Association

By Jasmine Brown

Thatcher, AZ— Eastern Arizona College’s new Communication Studies program has been awarded a charter for the Alpha Nu chapter of Sigma Chi Eta Honor Society. This organization was established in 2000 to recognize excellence and to honor students who excel in communication at two-year institutions by the National Communication Association.

To be awarded a chapter, schools must submit an application for consideration and a copy of the program of study at their school. The program is reviewed and a decision is made. “Our new Communication Studies program was approved after just two days of review,” said Gayle Houser, EAC’s Communication Studies instructor and advisor. “We were then notified of our charter being approved and assigned the Alpha Nu chapter of Sigma Chi Eta.”

Members of EAC’s Alpha Nu chapter may have the opportunity to attend a national conference and serve on national committees related to Sigma Chi Eta. For more information about EAC’s Communication Studies program or the opportunities available with new chapter of Alpha Nu, contact Houser at (928) 428-8489 or by email at Gayle Houser.
