It’s Inauguration Day, an important moment in American history. The United States has a new president and vice president in Joseph R. Biden, Jr. and Kamala D. Harris who were both sworn in this morning at the US Capitol. But, before this team embarked on their journey to the White House, they were students! Both President Biden and Vice President Harris were active students at their colleges and members of campus organizations. In honor of today, we’re taking a look at two of those organizations: Omicron Delta Kappa and Alpha Kappa Alpha.
We talk a lot about our graduation cords and the honor societies that use them, but many graduates choose to wear cords that represent important causes. Each month we will explore popular causes and their corresponding cord colors. This month, we’re spotlighting National Bullying Prevention Month.
Fall sports are back in action with the start of the college football season this week! While games look different this year due to Covid-19, there’s still a sense of normalcy seeing players back on the field and we’re excited about it!

The #1 most-played song at graduation ceremonies is Pomp & Circumstance and we can make a safe bet that members of music departments across the country can play it in their sleep! But, who recognizes such talent? Tri-M -- the only national honor society for student musicians!
It’s no secret, science is at the forefront of society right now. While the world wrestles with the novel coronavirus, scientists are tirelessly working to understand the virus, test therapies, and develop a vaccine.

Beta Beta Beta is an organization that recognizes those students who excel in the field.
We’re not sure about you, but we’re counting down the days to the end of 2020! We can hardly make heads or tails with what day, week, or month it is, and are trying to figure out how many days are left until the ball drops on New Year’s Eve. Do you know who would be able to help us out with this? Members of Pi Mu Epsilon -- The Mathematics Honor Society!
Originally founded as a departmental honor society at the University of California, Berkeley in 1906, Pi Delta Phi is the oldest collegiate academic honor society for a modern foreign language in the United States.

As we enter the debate season for the US Presidential Election, we’re reminded of the National Speech & Debate Association that was founded 95 years ago as a support and recognition program for high school students interested in growing their public speaking skills.

There’s often a lot of disagreements on which fraternity or Greek letter organization (GLO) was the first-founded in the US, but Phi Beta Kappa holds the title, being founded in 1775 by five students at the College of William and Mary.
