Sigma Chi Eta is the official community college honor society of the National Communication
Association (NCA). Every year, Sigma Chi Eta inducts and rewards new outstanding Communication
students while exploring options for community college students to transfer to four-year
colleges or universities or enter the workforce. Once inducted, a student is a member
for life and is expected to always strive for excellence.
Students with a 3.0 cumulative GPA and a 3.25 GPA in Communication are eligible for
membership. Eligible students must also complete a minimum of 12 units in Communication
The Alpha Beta chapter of Sigma Chi Eta has an active student
membership in the Communication Department at Santa Barbara City College and is led
by a team of elected student officers under the leadership of the Faculty Adviser.
Alpha Beta chapter works to develop events and opportunities that motivate, inform, and
inspire Communication students. We also have the goal of stimulating our members to
incorporate their Communication skills to positively impact our local community on
campus at SBCC, the larger Santa Barbara city region and beyond. One major area of
focus for the Alpha Beta chapter is service learning where students are given opportunities
to apply what they are learning in the field of Communication to solve real world
problems. As our mission reflects, we are committed to empowering our student members
to become socially-conscious leaders who care about the needs of others and who can
express themselves with both passion and civility.
