Meanwhile, Coastal Carolina University student Amber Rahman, an exercise and sport science major from Elkton, was also inducted into Phi Eta Sigma.
Phi Eta Sigma was founded in 1923 at the University of Illinois. It is the nation’s oldest and largest honor society for first-year college and university students in all disciplines. Phi Eta Sigma has chapters across 378 colleges in the U.S. and has inducted more than 1.1 million students.
In order to be inducted, students must have a GPA of at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale at the end of any semester. They also must be full-time students and rank in the upper 20% of their class.
