Lambda Pi Eta is the National Communication Association’s official honor society at four-year colleges and universities world-wide. The fraternity represents what Aristotle described in The Rhetoric as three ingredients of persuasion: logos (lambda), meaning logic; pathos (pi), relating to emotion; and ethos (eta), defined as character credibility and ethics. Lambda Pi Eta recognizes, fosters, and rewards outstanding scholastic achievement while stimulating interest in the communication discipline.
