MANHATTAN -- Lambda Pi Eta, a national communication studies honor society that recognizes outstanding scholastic achievement by students in communication studies has new members and new associate members at Kansas State University.

National requirements for student membership in Lambda Pi Eta include at least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average with 60 semester- or 90 quarter-credit hours completed. K-State's chapter also offers associate membership to freshmen and sophomores who have not yet met the credit-hour criteria but who do have the required grade point average and are interested in working toward membership in Lambda Pi Eta.

Along with recognizing scholastic excellence, the society builds relationships between faculty and students, and supports the communication studies field through professional development, exchange of ideas and exploration of graduate education.

New Lambda Pi Eta members and associate members at K-State include:

Haley Lloyd, sophomore in communication studies, Cimarron, new member; Lindsay Leigh Luina, junior in communication studies, Lawrence, new member; Kristin Slater, senior in communication studies, Leawood, new member; Ashley Blencoe, senior in communication studies, new member, and Brock Ingmire, sophomore in communication studies, associate member, both from Manhattan; Sarah Snell, junior in communication studies, Overland Park, associate member; Brooke Larson, junior in communication studies, Scandia, associate member; and Jaylee Henkle, sophomore in communication studies, Spring Hill, associate member.

From out of state: Jenna Surprenant, freshman in communication studies, Marshall, Minn., associate member; Callie Erickson, junior in communication studies, Papillion, Neb., new member; and Sarah Schwartz, freshman in economics and communication studies, Bushland, Texas, associate member.
