The pyramid on the Phi Eta Sigma Honor Society crest symbolizes strength, stability, and long-standing tradition. Phi Eta Sigma seeks to recognize and reward the local campus chapters that demonstrate those characteristics by presenting annually the Society’s Pyramid and Capstone Awards.
Chapters may earn Pyramid status each year by meeting specified requirements for consistency in new member inductions, appropriate communication with the national office, proper reporting of activities, and participation in the national scholarship program. For the 2017-2018 academic year, the following thirteen chapters of Phi Eta Sigma earned Pyramid status and received a certificate of achievement and publicized recognition in the FORUM of Phi Eta Sigma, as well as on the national website and social media pages.:
Abilene Christian University, Florida Institute of Technology, Gannon University, Georgia Southern University, University of Illinois, Kennesaw State University, McKendree University, University of Nebraska at Kearney, Pittsburg State University, University of Tennessee, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, University of Virginia, and Wartburg College.
From among the Pyramid chapters, one elite chapter was selected to receive the Capstone Award, which also bears a cash award of $100. Capstone chapters must meet all Pyramid requirements, in addition to other criteria including service or leadership events/projects and participation at the national level. The Capstone Award recipient chapter for 2017-2018 is:
Georgia Southern University
