About GCU’s Lambda Pi Eta Chapter

What is Lambda Pi Eta (LPH)?

LPH represents what Aristotle described in his book, "Rhetoric," as the three ingredients of persuasion: logos (lambda) meaning logic, pathos (pi) relating to emotion and ethos (eta) defined as character credibility and ethics. Lambda Pi Eta is the official honor society of the National Communication Association and follows six goals that exemplify the three ingredients of persuasion. LPH is also an officially recognized National Honor Society. Alpha Beta Sigma is GCU's official chapter name.
