Alpha Chi recognizes students who have achieved a grade point average which places them in the top ten percent of the junior and senior classes at their respective institutions.

Since 1922, the purpose of Alpha Chi has been to promote academic excellence and exemplary character among college and university students and to honor those who achieve such distinction.  N.C. Epsilon Chapter 120 was installed at Mars Hill University in 1971.  Faculty sponsor for the Epsilon Chapel is Dr. Gregory Clemons, professor of Spanish.
