what chapter members are saying

I enjoyed my time being a member of Eta Kappa Nu at UAH. The president [and leadership] made it feel nice to be part of an honors society with noble values and ideals. I'd be glad to do anything for our chapter.

Joining Eta Kappa Nu helped distinguish me in this field [of electrical and computer engineering] and simultaneously enrich my undergraduate experience.

Amanda Suiter

Eta Kappa Nu played an essential role in my undergraduate career: helping other students, being part of an esteemed honor society, and upholding our central ideals. As president of Theta Eta IEEE-HKN, I've developed the skills necessary to lead in multiple contexts outside just the classroom.
