Alpha Chi inducts 43 students
Alpha Chi held its annual induction ceremony on March 22, 2022, to recognize students for their academic excellence at Charleston Southern University. This year, 43 students were inducted into the South Carolina Zeta Chapter of Alpha Chi. The achievements of these scholars indicate they understand and uphold the ideals of Alpha Chi – truth and character.
Dr. Maxwell Rollins, professor and director of graduate programs in the Hans A. Nielsen College of Business, said this ceremony is one of the highlights of the year. “The students being inducted into Alpha Chi are recognized for striving for and achieving excellence,” he said. “It gives us an opportunity to honor our brightest scholars at Charleston Southern University. Although it is a celebration of their accomplishments, we encourage them at the ceremony to use their knowledge and talents to serve and love others so they can see the love of Jesus Christ through them.”
Founded in 1922, Alpha Chi celebrates its 100th 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. Alpha Chi is a general honor society that admits students from all academic disciplines and 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.
