Phi Eta Sigma

Phi Eta Sigma is a national honor society inspired by the past and dedicated to the future. It is their goal to encourage and reward academic excellence among full-time, first year students in institutions of higher learning.

Induction is an outward recognition of personal accomplishment and serves as an incentive for continued high scholarship. It provides members the opportunity to meet freshman scholars from all academic disciplines on their campuses and to join them in promoting academic excellence. Members may apply for scholarships available from national and from local chapters.

The UCF chapter strives to continue to exemplify the qualities of Service, Excellence, and Community. Members of Phi Eta Sigma have access to a network of local, active members, and opportunities for service and learning and receive a family atmosphere with support from fellow members and officers. Presently, there are over 200 active members of Phi Eta Sigma and membership will be extended to first year students at the end of fall and spring semesters.
