ACHS Informational Alert
HonorSociety.org means a lot to its members nationwide. It is a society that inspires them, motivates them, and gives the tools and community to push further in their academic, leadership and networking pursuits.
We respect ACHS, as they are on the same mission as we are to better students and prepare them more effectively for the University niche, but also for the world post-graduation. Ultimately, HonorSociety.org and ACHS want the same thing--students to be recognized for their achievements. However, in order to truly come together in the pursuit of excellence for students and alumni alike, societies do not benefit from tearing each other down. ACHS has made accusations about HonorSociety.org's legitimacy, but before writing any organization off, we recommend students ask the following questions:
- What is the ACHS?
- Who made them the "certifying agency" of honor societies?
- Does the ACHS have any merit whatsoever, other then the merit they have placed on themselves?
There are many other respected, timeless honor societies that ACHS has failed to mention as "legitimate" on their pages, such as: HonorSociety.org, Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi, Phi Theta Kappa, Golden Key, and Gamma Beta Phi. All of these organizations have a rich history and community of their own, and it is perplexing--at best--why these societies would fail to join ACHS of their own accord if it was as prestigious as it claims to be.
We encourage you to spend some time looking at our society and the causes we support, such as raising over $20,000 for the American Red Cross this year, bringing in community leaders such as the mayor of Los Angeles, US World Cup Soccer players, and entrepreneurs to speak at our events. We have recognized chapters at a number of universities nationwide, fostered an active community of members who host events on campus, and traveled to member trips nationwide.
