Biola University has a local chapter of Alpha Psi Omega, the national honor society for participants in collegiate theatre. Instead of "chapters" we have casts, and Biola's cast is Alpha Theta Xi, which was inaugurated at Biola in 2017 by Professor Zachary Bortot. Membership is open to students who are active in collegiate/university theatre at four-year institutions. A point system is utilized for determining eligibility of membership, with a certain number of points being dealt to a certain task in theatre, among categories such as performance, production, directing, dramaturgy, playwriting, theatre education, and serving as an Alpha Psi Omega officer. As an honor society, Alpha Psi Omega provides service to the Theatre program in a variety of ways, ranging from organizing fundraisers and social events to staging productions and awards ceremonies. A one-time membership fee of $30 is collected upon induction and provides lifetime membership. Alpha Psi Omega membership on your resume assists potential employers to recognize the national acknowledgement of academic excellence. Members of Alpha Psi Omega are indicated as such in the graduation program for the university at both fall and spring commencements.
