Phi Eta Sigma Inductions 2017

Last weekend, more than 30 students were inducted into Phi Eta Sigma, the International Honor Society rewarding first-collegiate-year scholarship, during a ceremony held in Peterson Chapel.

In addition, Dr. Alexa Yesukevich, adjunct professor of sociology, was inducted as an honorary member. Dr. Yesukevich was selected based on her ability to create an engaging, positive environment for discussion and debate on social topics. 

Phi Eta Sigma, the oldest and largest first-year honor society, was founded in 1923 at the University of Illinois with the goal of encouraging and rewarding academic excellence among full-time, first-year students in institutions of higher learning. 

The Society has established chapters in over 350 institutions of higher learning in the United States. Elmira College is the 289th chapter, established in 1990.

The three Greek letters, Phi, Eta, and Sigma, represent the basis of the organization’s membership, in that they mean literally “lovers of wisdom.”
