Lambda Pi Eta
Lambda Pi Eta (LPH) is the honor society of the National Communication Association for four-year institutions of higher education. LPH represents the first letters of what Aristotle described in The Rhetoric as the three modes of persuasion: Logos, Pathos and Ethos.
The official colors of LPH are crimson to represent the communication discipline and silver in recognition of speech and oratory skills. The purpose of the honor society is to promote outstanding academic achievement in the communication discipline.
LPH was founded in 1985 and has over 400 active chapters at four-year colleges and universities worldwide. The Niagara University chapter of LPH is Omicron Iota. Invitation to the honor society is based on academic standing of students in their junior and senior years. An induction ceremony is held each spring semester.
