About Alpha Chi
The Massachusetts Delta Chapter of Alpha Chi is a national college honor society that accepts only the top 10 percent of juniors, seniors, and graduate students in all academic fields and that recognizes and promotes scholarship. Once a member, students are eligible for regional and national scholarships, and may apply to attend Alpha Chi’s annual national convention (at a subsidized cost), where they could present their work to fellow members and faculty from across the country. During the induction, each member receives a certificate suitable for framing and a lapel pin. In addition, the chapter will purchase and provide an official Alpha Chi medallion to be worn by each member at Commencement.
Pine Manor’s chapter of Alpha Chi was established in 1991 with 16 members. The Massachusetts chapter is the Delta Chapter, as we are the fifth college in Massachusetts to establish a chapter.
In order to qualify for membership a student must be enrolled full time, be a junior or senior with at least one year of residency, have a cumulative GPA of 3.5, and at least one semester with a 3.75 GPA.
