Alpha Psi Omega is a an honor society, so you do need a GPA of at least 2.5. You also need to complete 60 points, which are obtained through the semester by going to different events, helping at events, attending meetings, working on an Alpha Psi Omega show, etc. Points will be calculated at events via a swipe system that utilizes your student ID.
Inductions take place at the end of every semester. As long as you get your 60 points, you will be assigned a "Big" and have to pay your one time dues fee of $40. Additionally, you will have to recite 12 lines of Shakespeare. Your big will give you a nickname and a gift.
Once you finish your pledge semester and get inducted, you will have to maintain 30 points every following semester to stay an active member.
