Students Inducted into Alpha Chi Honor Society at USciences

Alpha Chi InducteesNearly 45 students at University of the Sciences were inducted into the Kappa Chapter of Alpha Chi national honor society during a special ceremony held on Tuesday, Nov. 3.

“Through involvement in our local chapter and the regional and national levels, Alpha Chi members have the opportunity to develop leadership skills and gain experience in professional activities, such as making scholarly presentations,” said Alison Mostrom, PhD, Alpha Chi advisor and associate professor of biology.

During the ceremony, a select group of 44 inductees were introduced by their faculty advisers or department chairs who highlighted each student’s accomplishments. Alpha Chi is open to the top 10 percent of juniors, seniors and graduate students in all majors except pharmacy and psychology/health psychology. That’s because pharmacy students are eligible for Rho Chi and psychology/health psychology students are eligible for Psi Chi, which are both exclusive international academic societies for their respective disciplines.

Natalie Stella DPT'18, current president of USciences’ Alpha Chi chapter, addressed the students and congratulated them during the ceremony. Family members were also present to share in the dinner and ceremony, and were acknowledged for the support and encouragement that they have provided their children.
