Phi Eta Sigma
The Dean of Students Office is proud to advise and support the Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society, a freshmen honor society with an active chapter at UNM. Recruitment for each academic year will begin at the beginning of the spring term. Interested members are invited to apply by downloading the application here (when applicable) or by picking up an application at the Dean of Students Office. By joining Phi Eta Sigma, students have the opportunity to:
- Meet peers and build a community
- Develop leadership skills
- Participate in monthly community service activities
- Earn participation points for annual chapter scholarships
- Network with UNM staff, faculty, and Albuquerque community members
Any freshman with a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.5 at the end of any full-time curricular period are automatically eligible for membership. In addition, they need to have completed a normal academic load acceptable toward a bachelor's degree and rank in the upper 20 percent of their class. Lifetime membership is conferred upon induction, and maintaining the grade-point average after induction is not required.
