For the just-completed 2016-2017 academic year, Theta Alpha Kappa inducted Louis Franciose of Salt Lake City, Utah, and Mikaela Lachapelle of East Brookfield, Massachusetts.
Franciose is a recent graduate of Saint Anselm College, class of 2017, and Lachappelle is a rising senior. Both are Theology majors.
The names of Franciose and Lachapelle have been added to a plaque in Bradley Hall, the primary location of Theology faculty on the campus of Saint Anselm College.
Theology is offered at Saint Anselm as either a major or a minor field of study. As the national honor society for religious studies and theology, Theta Alpha Kappa's mission is to promote and enhance excellence in the study of religion/theology at accredited institutions of higher education.
Over 200 chapters of Theta Alpha Kappa are affiliated with Theta Alpha Kappa across the United States, including four-year educational institutions which range from small religiously-affiliated colleges to large public research institutions. Theta Alpha Kappa describes itself as the only national honor society dedicated to recognizing academic excellence in baccalaureate and post-baccalaureate students and in scholars in the fields of religious studies and theology.
