The University of Utah Chapter #40 was established on June 2, 1939, and annually invites qualified freshman or transfer students to be become lifetime members.

Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society was founded by three distinguished Phi Beta Kappa members, professors, and administrators at the University of Illinois on March 22, 1923, to encourage and recognize high scholastic achievement among members of the first semester classes at the University of Utah. Phi Eta Sigma is the third most senior member of the Association of College Honor Societies.

University of Utah is an awesome environment for Phi Eta Sigma and its goals to:

  1. recognize and reward students (freshman) who attained high scholastic achievement during their first semester at the University of Utah, and
