What Honor Societies are Legit?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
If you receive an invitation to join a national honor society, it's in your best interest to check it out prior to cutting that annual or lifetime membership fee. 

The Association of College Honors Societies is a professional organization that lists college honors organizations.   Their website is a good place to assess the legitimacy and value of an honors society.
Be sure it is a legitimate organization that provides real services to its members.  Good honors societies have member benefits like scholarship opportunities and active campus chapters.  Honor societies in name alone may serve as a line item on your resume, but they won't provide an opportunity for meaningful involvement in the advancement of organizational goals, leadership opportunities or networking opportunities.
