Chi Alpha Epsilon National Honor Society
The Chi Alpha Epsilon National Honor Society was founded by Dr. Elbert Saddler in 1989 at West Chester University of Pennsylvania. It was organized in response to an increased need to acknowledge the continuing success of students in the Academic Development Program. Dr. Saddler recognized that these students could serve as significant models to others who shared similar experiences.
The Epsilon Alpha Chapter of the Chi Alpha Epsilon National Honor Society was formed to recognize the outstanding academic achievements of students enrolled in the Percy Ellis Sutton SEEK Program of Hunter College. The chapter aims to promote continued high academic standards, to cultivate increased communication, and to honor academic excellence achieved by its members.
The Epsilon Alpha Chapter's eligibility criteria are as follows:
- Students must maintain a minimum of a 3.0 cumulative GPA for two consecutive full-time semesters
- Students must have been admitted to Hunter College through the auspices of SEEK
- Alumni who graduated with a 3.0 or better may subsequently be inducted into the Epsilon Alpha Omega Chapter
The Epsilon Alpha Chapter at Hunter College joins over 100 college and university chapters nationwide, including Michigan State University, Villanova University, SUNY Stony Brook, Baruch College, Brooklyn College and John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
