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 2016-2017 academic year, the following twenty 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.:
Florida Institute of Technology, Florida State University, Georgia Southern University, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis*, Kennesaw State University, McKendree University, Missouri State University, University of Nebraska-Kearney, New Mexico State University, New York Institute of Technology, North Dakota State University, Otterbein University, Purdue University, San Diego State University, South Dakota School of Mines & Technology, Southeast Missouri State University, University of Tennessee, Texas A&M University, Wartburg College, and University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
From among the Pyramid chapters, one elite chapter was selected to receive the Capstone Award, which also bears a cash award of $100.
