The Anthropology Department houses the Omicron Chapter of Lambda Alpha, the national anthropology honor society. To become a member, a student must be a major and have completed 60 credit hours and have an overall GPA of 3.5 or better and involvement in anthropological activities. Each semester, majors with the requisite GPA are sent an invitation to apply for membership by the chapter officers. Upon completion of the application, the current membership of the chapter votes on who will be offered membership. The names of the candidates are submitted to the faculty for approval, after which they are inducted into the chapter at the end of each semester.
