Rho Chi Honor Society

The Rho Chi Society Phi chapter is the University of Illinois College of Pharmacy’s honor society. Invitations to be inducted into the society are given out to the top students in each class, based on GPA, once the student has completed at least half the didactic coursework. The Rho Chi Society’s vision is to achieve universal recognition of its members as lifelong intellectual leaders in pharmacy. Members of the Rho Chi Society focus on intellectual leadership through tutoring, community service, and providing study aids for fellow students. The mission of The Rho Chi Society is to encourage and recognize excellence in intellectual achievement and foster fellowship among its members. Further, the Society encourages high standards of conduct and character, and advocates critical inquiry in all aspects of pharmacy.
