The University of New Hampshire has a long and strong/valued tradition of recognizing outstanding student academic achievement through election to a variety of honor societies.  Some of these national societies recognize performance in any academic field while others are limited to specific disciplines. 

Honor societies are most prevalent in colleges and universities.  Based on varying criteria of high academic achievement and leadership, students are invited to join most commonly in their junior or senior year.  Although initiated into the campus chapter, students become members of the national society for life.
