New Honor Society for Online Students

Texas Woman's University is pleased to announce its newest honor society – Epsilon Omega Epsilon or EOE.

EOE has been established to recognize the hard work, dedication and perseverance of students enrolled in one of TWU’s Distance Education programs. We are pleased to announce that on Monday, March 1, a membership invitation will be sent to DE students who meet the eligibility criteria. Those criteria as well as other information about EOE can be found at
www.twu.edu/eoe.

If you receive an EOE membership invitation, we encourage you to apply! We look forward to honoring the outstanding, academic achievements of this special group. Later in the spring, we plan to hold an induction ceremony that will be broadcast online for members, and we hope to establish student officers very soon as well.

EOE will be housed in the Office of Commuter Services and will be advised by Annie Phillips Newton from Commuter Services as well as Allison Mabry from Distance Education. If you have any questions, please email us at
EOE@twu.edu.

If you would like to ask questions or comment, please look for the “Social Stream” tab on the right side of the screen. Do not use the chat tab. (Note: We used the Social Stream function for the first time during the Tuition Increase Public Hearing today 2-9-10. Unfortunately, we were unaware until after the broadcast that the Social Stream function was not working. We are investigating the issue and hope it will be fully functioning for tomorrow’s panel.)
