Paul’s Answer

Hi Nimran:

It really depends on the college that you are attending and how many the college has sanctioned on the campus. There is an excellent website from the Association of College Honor Societies, which publishes a list of the ones which they regard as being legitimate. The primary one is Phi Theta Kappa, but there are also other ones to consider as well. I have known students who have been members of all the honor societies on campus, as long as they met the requirements and admission standards. This would be a personal choice for you to make as well. But I would check out the list from ACHS and make the final determination as to which ones you would like to join.

Paul recommends the following next steps:

Review the list of honor societies at ACHS, to check the list for legitimate on campus organizations.
Review the admissions standards for each honor society. See if there are dues which must be paid and the academic GPA requirements to maintain your status.
Ask your academic advisor or the Student Life office about the honor societies and their history on campus.

Blake’s Answer

Hey Nimran,

I don't think there is a "limit" on how many you can join, but I do know that you would begin to run out of time if you joined too many. I also know that universities have limits on the amount of class hours you can take in a semester, which requires special approval to go above that limit. Hope this helps!

Thanks,
Blake
