Hello out there! I hope someone can give me some insight! I was invited to join my school's chapter of Sigma Theta Tau Honor Society. I plan to join - (fees total up to $98)

HOWEVER, if I want to attend the actual induction ceremony the price would be $150 dollars and if I want to bring my parents its $40 extra per person. I really don't have that kind of money at the moment. Is fine to just skip the ceremony but accept the invitation?? I still would get my cords for graduation right? I imagine I wouldn't be missing out on much in the actual ceremony but I just wanted to ask and see if anyone else has personal experience and could offer their take on it. :) 

Thanks in advance!

$150 to attend and $40 per ticket/person basically?  Are they giving you a gold trophy or a state dinner? What a rip off.  That's what people pay to feed guests at a wedding ceremony...and even that is free for the guests. I'm all about being a part of the Honor Society, I'm even okay paying a due to join, but if mine charged that much for induction, that be a hard pass.  I premise this by saying I don't know anything about that honor society, I'm in one, but the cost was nothing like this & induction was free for seniors. 

My opinion, get your cord at graduation and wear it with pride knowing you earned it. If however induction is that important and you got that $ to just throw away, I suppose you could do it...

Congrats by the way for the distinction of even being a part of it. No easy feat.

Thank you! 🙂  and thanks for the reply! I don't think they even give you dinner or anything..not sure why it's soo much money!! I definitely do NOT have that money, I already have to pay for cap and gown and whatever else this school wants to charge me for 😑  haha I think I'm just gonna skip out on the induction ceremony but I'll pay the dues to become a member.

Thank again for your input!

Yes you can accept the invitation and skip the induction ceremony.

Not sure about the second question because I skipped graduation, too. Sorry.
