Alpha Chi Honor Society


Dear Alpha Chi Inductees, 

Per the California State University Chancellor’s Office directive, CSU Bakersfield and the CSUB Antelope Valley Campus were directed to shift to accelerated virtual instruction and social distancing beginning March 18th. As you all may know, CSU Bakersfield and Kern County have declared a state of emergency. In this notice, all on-campus functions have been postponed until further notice, this includes our Alpha Chi induction ceremony. Our ceremonywas initially scheduled for Sunday, May 3rd, but has now been postponed until further notice. We assure that you will receive your induction materials and hope to recognize your accomplishments at a ceremony once we are allowed to do so. We ask for your cooperation as we all work together to keep ourselves and our community safe


Alpha Chi is a coeducational academic honor society. Since 1922 its purpose has been to promote academic excellence and exemplary character among college and university students and to honor those who achieve such distinction.

Although CSU, Bakersfield is home to several discipline-specific honor organizations, Alpha Chi is our first national all-university academic society. CSUB established the California Iota Chapter of Alpha Chi seventeen years ago with 55 charter members, and our present membership stands at 1,465.
