Student Development and Campus Life

Honor Societies

High academic achievers may join a variety of honor societies in recognition of their accomplishments. Students who meet the criteria for any of the six National Honor Societies with chapters at Berkeley College are invited to join.

There are numerous benefits to joining academic honor societies. Nationally, only a small percentage of college and university students are eligible to become members of academic honor societies, so membership is a mark of distinction. Each society provides members with networking opportunities, so students can connect with others beyond their Berkeley College honor society chapter. Some societies provide additional scholarship or leadership development opportunities to members, as well.

Students can find more information regarding honor societies in the Student Development and Campus Life section of Blackboard.
