Welcome to Phi Alpha Theta - Eta Xi


Phi Alpha Theta is a chapter of the History Honor Society, which was originally organized at the University of Arkansas in 1917. Since its inception, Phi Alpha Theta has grown to over 800 chapters in fifty states, as well as Puerto Rico, Canada and the Philippine Islands. To date it is the largest (in numbers and chapters) of the accredited honor societies and boasts more than 150,000 initiates internationally. The main objective of Phi Alpha Theta is to promote the study of history and to recognize superior achievement in the field.

The Eta-Xi chapter of Phi Alpha Theta at California State University, Los Angeles, was founded in 1960 by Professor Arthur Smith, and has held a distinguished reputation since. It is consistently strong in the regional paper competitions, and is a frequent recipient of the Chapter Awards in its division.
