The Hastings College chapter of Alpha Chi, the all-discipline collegiate academic honor society, inducted 11 students during its recent fall induction service earlier this summer.
The purpose of Alpha Chi is to promote academic excellence and exemplary character among college and university students and to honor those who achieve such distinction. Students from across all academic disciplines who are in the top 10 percent of their class are invited to join.
Students with membership in Alpha Chi help host activities on campus such as Alpha Chi Trivia Night, Bronco Brain Buster Quiz Bowl and Academic Showcase.
