Forty-one Charleston Southern University students were recognized for academic achievement and inducted into the South Carolina Zeta Chapter of Alpha Chi March 23.

Dr. Maxwell Rollins, one of the faculty sponsors, said, “The achievements of these scholars indicate they understand and uphold the ideals of Alpha Chi – truth and character.” Other faculty sponsors are Dr. Charles Smedley and Dr. John Kuykendall. Dr. Jackie Fish, vice president for academic affairs, was the speaker for the ceremony.

Alpha Chi, founded in 1922, is celebrating its 101st anniversary this year. It is a coeducational society whose purpose is to promote academic excellence and exemplary character among college and university students and to honor those who
achieve such distinction.

A general honor society that admits students from all academic disciplines, Alpha Chi is a member in good standing of the Association of College Honor Societies. To qualify for an invitation, students must be in the top 10% of their junior or senior classes.
