Robert Morris University held an Honor Society Ceremony to recognize students inducted into the Accounting Honor Society, Sigma Beta Delta, and Lambda Epsilon Chi. Congratulations to the following students.
Accounting Honor Society
The Robert Morris University Accounting Honor Society was founded for the purpose of recognizing the top students in the BS in Accounting and MBA Accounting programs. Membership is extended only to a select group of accounting students. The standards are high and are established to include only those accounting majors who have an overall 3.50 GPA with a 3.70 GPA in Accounting at RMU.
As members in the Accounting Honor Society you not only receive the recognition of the RMU community, but also membership in a nationally recognized organization called the IMA Accounting Honor Society (IAHS). Some benefits include lifetime membership, certificate of Achievement, and a graduation cord.
Membership in the Accounting Honor Society is recognition of your scholastic and professional accomplishments. But equally important, membership acknowledges a capacity for professional success. Membership imposes upon you the obligation to accept a responsible place in the Accounting Honor Society, and later, in the accounting profession.
Sigma Beta Delta
Sigma Beta Delta Honor Society for students in business, management, and administration serves institutions which offer baccalaureate and graduate degrees in business, management, and administration where the institution holds accreditation from one of the six regional accrediting bodies but not specialized accreditation in business.
Membership in Sigma Beta Delta is the highest national recognition a business student can receive at a college or university with a Sigma Beta Delta chapter. To be eligible for membership, a business student must rank in the top 20 percent of the junior or senior class and be invited to membership by the faculty officers.

Lambda Epsilon Chi (LEX)
Lambda Epsilon Chi (LEX) is the national honor society founded by the American Association for Paralegal Education (AAfPE). Its purpose is to recognize superior academic performance in an established program of paralegal studies. Currently, there are nearly 200 LEX chapters throughout the United States. In April 2008, Robert Morris University was granted the right to form and maintain a LEX chapter.
Candidates for induction are considered upon completion of 64 credit hours or two-thirds of their Associate Degree. Requirements for admission to Robert Morris University’s LEX chapter are rigorous: a cumulative grade point average of 3.75 or higher and a grade point average of 3.5 or higher in all Paralegal classes.
Membership in LEX is a true and meaningful academic honor and a recognizable indication of superior academic achievement to members of the legal profession
