The theatre department is reactivating the University of West Alabama’s Alpha Psi Omega, the National Theatre Honor society. The Nu Alpha chapter at UWA started in 1952. The last time the chapter was active and initiated new members was in 1994.
“We will be initiating 5 new members this semester and you’ll start seeing them being active on campus next semester,” Erin Hisey said.
Membership eligibility requirements for the Nu Alpha chapter include a 2.5 GPA or higher and at least 2 semesters of involvement with the UWA Theatre. The member must also have at least 75 points on a point scale where points are assigned for participating in productions either on stage or backstage.
“I had several requests over the last 2 years to restart the organization and we are finally able to do so. I’m excited to bring this back to our campus,” Hisey said.
