Eligible candidates must have minimum grade point average of 3.6 on a 4.0 scale, and must be enrolled in Greenwood for a period equivalent to one semester prior to being inducted into the society. A Faculty Committee consisting of five faculty members, selected by the Director, selects students for membership. In addition to Scholarship, students are considered for membership on the basis of character, leadership and service. Membership is more than an honor; it is a responsibility and beginning of an obligation. Once selected, a student must continue demonstrating these outstanding qualities. If he/she fails seriously in any one of these basic areas or if a student fails to maintain a 3.6 grade point average, on a 4.0 grade scale, he/she is subject to dismissal from the society.
