2016-2017 marks the 75th year of operation for our organization. Alpha Epsilon Rho was founded as an honor society for college students studying radio. The organization was in the planning stage in 1941. However, America’s entry into World War II delayed the formal founding of the national organization. Planning in the 1942-43 school year led to a national gathering at Ohio State University where the organization was officially founded on May 1, 1943.
Our 75th year will include a number of surprises to help us celebrate. Stay tuned as they will be announced in the coming weeks.
