Membership

The Georgia Southern Armstrong chapter of Phi Eta Sigma extends offers to join in December to students who 1) begin at Georgia Southern as new college students the spring, summer or fall of that calendar year; 2) take at least 12 hours in the fall; and, 3) have earned a cumulative Georgia Southern GPA of 3.6 or higher. The chapter sends letters to students’ permanent home address as well as via email. If you have not received communication about joining by the beginning of spring classes and believe you should have, contact faculty advisor Dr. Joshua Williams at jlwilliams@georgiasouthern.edu.

National Scholarships

Active Georgia Southern Phi Eta Sigma members have been very successful in the organization’s national scholarship competition over the past decade. The chapter advisor with the assistance of a committee, screens the applications to put the strongest candidates forward each year. The pool of nominees typically comes from members who apply for local scholarships. Nomination packets are typically due March 1 and often require a significant amount of revision. The number of nominees we can put forward is determined by the size of the previous year’s initiation class. Georgia Southern has nominated three students for the past several years.

Service Activities

Phi Eta Sigma members collected a total of 276 pounds of non perishable food items to donate to the local America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia.  The donation was made on April 15th and was the first service project of 2019 which involved new inductees from our 2019 induction. Fantastic Start!
