Alpha Zeta. Founded in 1922, Alpha Zeta is the
national honorary agriculture fraternity. It elects to its membership
only those students who have exhibited evidence of leadership and who
rank in the upper two-fifths of their class after completing three full
terms of college course work.

education), Chi Epsilon Pi (meteorology), Kappa Kappa Psi (band), Kappa
Theta Epsilon (cooperative education), Pi Alpha Xi (floriculture),
Tri-Beta (biology), and Scabbard and Blade (military).
Sigma Xi. Any
member of the senior class who has majored in a natural science,
mathematics, or engineering, who has shown excellence in scholarship,
and who has a fair prospect of engaging in scientific research at
a recognized institution during the ensuing year is eligible for
election as an associate member of the Society of Sigma Xi.
