Kansas Wesleyan University

A select group of 25 Kansas Wesleyan students was inducted into the Alpha Chi national honor society on Sunday, Nov. 17 at KWU’s Fitzpatrick Auditorium.

Alpha Chi is an American collegiate honor society, headquartered at Harding University in Searcy, Ark. It is an open society that invites juniors, seniors and graduate students who rank in the top ten percent of their class to join. More than 11,000 new members are inducted into the ranks of Alpha Chi each year. The KWU chapter frequently travels to the society’s annual convention, including this year’s in Albuquerque, N.M., and four of KWU’s students have been national scholarship recipients or alternates from the society during the past decade.
