Today I was handed a letter by a teacher. That letter invited me to join something called Phi Alpha Theta, which apparently is like an honors society for history students.
If I were to accept, what exactly would that mean? Would I be required to attend events/meets or the likes? Would that make my job resume look significantly better?
Any thoughts or advice?

On a scale how nerdy are you?

Have you done easily anything school has thrown at you?

Join. It's minimal effort, you might make friends through the events, and It's just something to put on your resume.

I'll have to pay a $50 fee.

Somewhere from 7-9, I'd say.

You're probably going to get a lot of invitations to join honors societies during your time at college. There are only two you should consider. One is your subject specific honors society, in your case Phi Alpha Theta. The other is something like Phi Kappa Phi, or one that has even stricter standards (iirc, you have to be in the top 10% of your class to be eligible to join Phi Kappa Phi). Having these two imply that you could join basically any other, making the others redundant.
