On Your Honor

This past Wednesday night we inducted thirteen new members into TAK (Theta Alpha Kappa) Theology and Religious Studies Honor Society. To join you need 12 hours of TH/RS taken at Rockhurst, have a GPA of 3.5% in those classes, at least an overall Rockhurst GPA of 3.0%. Our local chapter is part of National Honor Society. Members received a certificate and red honor cords. Induction took place during our regular pizza party and departmental social.

Being part of an Honor Society looks good on your college resumé when you want to get a job or go onto grad school. There are thirteen Honor Societies here at Rockhurst University and you can join more than one.

Well this is Greek week at the Rock. The sororities and fraternities are taking in new pledges. This morning there was a campus-wide hunt for the hidden flag. People received a set of clues in code to try to solve the mystery. Because I know a lot of languages one guy hit me up for help in deciphering. Some of it looked like it was in German, some in Danish, some in Spanish, but none of it made any readily discernible sense. I had to quick get some things done so I wasn’t much help. Of cpourse today is April Fools so there's no telling if the clue sheet was even a REAL clue sheet.

But anyhow, Rockhurst University has an active Greek life and it’s a great way to connect with others and be involved in all sorts of service projects, outreaches, and just fun times. Check us out.
