Sigma Chi Eta Chapter Honored Nationally

October 29, 2008 – Collin College’s chapter of Sigma Chi Eta, the national communications honor society, was named as one of two Raymie E. McKerrow Chapters of the Year by the National Communication Association (NCA).

The award was bestowed on a chapter that best exemplifies the goals of the NCA including recognizing and foster academic achievement in communication studies, stimulating interest in communications, promoting professional development, providing a stage to exchange ideas and explore options for community college students who plan to transfer to a university.

There are 28 Sigma Chi Eta chapters across the nation.

Sigma Chi Eta began in 2000 and the Collin College chapter began last year. Students must maintain a 3.0 grade point average with at least 12 semester hours or a 3.25 grade point average for communication studies courses with nine credit hours completed.
