Marymount Communication program now home to chapter of National Communication Honor Society
Greetings Communication Majors!
The Communication program now has a chapter of the Communication honor society, and Dr. McFarlane is the faculty advisor. Marymount University is home to the Alpha Chi Omnicron chapter of Lambda Pi Eta (LPH), the official honor society of the National Communication Association.
The name Lambda Pi Eta represents what Aristotle described in his book, Rhetoric, as three ingredients of persuasion: logos (Lambda), meaning logic; pathos (Pi), relating to emotion; and ethos (Eta), defined as character credibility and ethics.
