Cody A. Solomon of Peachtree Corners, Ga., a member of the class of 2017 at Washington and Lee University, was recently inducted into Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society, which is limited to students who complete the first term of their first year with superior academic records.
To be eligible for Phi Eta Sigma, a student must be in the top 20 percent of the class at the end of his or her first term. Eighty-one W&L students were initiated at a ceremony held the first night of W&L's 2014 Reunion Weekend in May.
"The academic accomplishments of the first year class, individually and collectively, are very impressive. Many Phi Eta Sigma inductees will obtain further academic accolades including graduate fellowships." said Jason Rodocker, assistant dean for first-year experience, and adviser to the W&L chapter of Phi Eta Sigma.
