Sigma Phi Omega was founded in 1923 by faculty members as a way of recognizing the academic performance and campus participation of students. In order for students to be admitted to the honor society, they must achieve a 3.0 grade point average, have no failing grades and participate in at least two on-campus clubs, committees or athletic teams. Both Huffman and Bucklew serve as advisors to the honor society.
