Pi Epsilon Pi is is a national honors society for undergraduate students in Writing Studies. The first PEP was established at Loyola University in Maryland in 2006. Since then, chapters have been founded at institutions across the nation. At UCF, our chapter of PEP is an honor’s society and a community of scholars that excel in Writing Studies. The application process is selective, considering your work in Writing Studies as well as your GPA, but we encourage all undergraduate students to apply if they are majoring, minoring, or getting a certificate in Writing and Rhetoric!
