University Inducts 33 New Members into Academic Organization

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—Gardner-Webb University inducted 33 members into Alpha Chi, a national collegiate honor society, in a ceremony held Nov. 13 in Blanton Auditorium on the GWU campus.

Alpha Chi promotes academic excellence and exemplary character among college and university students and honors those who achieve such distinction. Membership is open to students with junior and senior classification who demonstrate strong character and whose GPA ranks them in the top 10 percent of their academic classes.

Gardner-Webb’s Alpha Chi chapter earns consistent national recognition for its academic achievements, including honors for presentations at the annual Alpha Chi National Convention. A group of 22 GWU students—the largest in chapter history—presented a range of undergraduate research findings at the convention this year in Washington, D.C. Several earned significant prizes or scholarships for their presentations. The GWU North Carolina Zeta Chapter of Alpha Chi was established in 1972.
