Pinnacle Honor Society

Pinnacle members

USU Pinnacle Membership Application (2014-15)

What is Pinnacle?

Pinnacle is a national honor society for nontrad students, placing emphasis on academic excellence, leadership, service, persistence, and future promise. Seniors and exceptional Juniors are invited to apply. With over 150 chartered institutions on more than 175 campuses, Pinnacle honorees can be found in every corner of our nation. Pinnacle issues charters to accredited colleges and universities which, in turn, select outstanding nontraditional seniors and “rising seniors” for recognition at the local and national level. Pinnacle is proud of its large and diverse institutional membership list, which includes Utah State University. Learn more at http://www.pinnaclespire.org.

Students selected for membership in Pinnacle must meet the following criteria:

  • Have been involved in at least three (3) campus and/or community activities
  • Demonstrate leadership, persistence, and future promise
