Lambda Pi Eta

The Gamma Delta Chapter at Westfield State University was founded in 1994. We are comprised of undergraduate honor students, who are committed to helping the less fortunate in the Westfield Community. We also strive to expand educational opportunities as well as leadership skills to the students in our department.

“L” stands for the first mode of persuasion; logos, or logic. In all aspects of scholarship and its application to one’s life, logic plays a major role in deliberations and problem solving.

“P” stands for pathos, or emotional appeal. This second symbol of our organization’s name encompasses a driving force that makes an organization vital and effective.

“E” stands for ethos, or character credibility and ethics. Aristotle sees character credibility as a primary means of affecting change in society and one’s life. Thus it is appropriate that ethos is a major symbol of Lambda Pi Eta.

Our Mission

The purposes of Lambda Pi Eta are:

  • To recognize, foster, and reward outstanding scholastic achievement in communication studies
  • Stimulate interest in the field of communication
  • Promote and encourage professional development among communication majors
  • Provide an opportunity to discuss and exchange ideas in the field of communication
  • To establish and maintain closer relationships and mutual understanding between communication faculty and students
  • To explore options for graduate education in communication studies


Everyone is invited to take part in Lambda Pi Eta's ongoing activities. Due to its national nature, there are requirements in order to become officially inducted into the honor society.

Students are eligible for election to membership once they have met the requirements below:

  • at least 60 credit hours of coursework
  • a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 for all courses taken
  • are in the upper 35% of their academic class
  • have completed 12 credit hours of communication studies
  • have a GPA of at least 3.25 for all communication courses


Throughout each semester students and faculty take part in several activities within LPE. Some of these activities are meant to fundraiser for future events. Others are meant to inform students and help them prepare for the future. And of course there are also events that are meant for students to socialize and have fun. Our past events include:

  • Bakes Sales
  • A Networking Career Fair
  • Peer Advising for communication majors
  • An origami dinner
  • A grad school 'how to'
  • Exam Survival Kit sale
