Alpha Chi is an honor society for juniors, seniors and graduate students that is not exclusive to student athletes.
Turkington and Mora were selected by recommendations of their respective department chairs and only qualified by being in the top 5 percent of the students in their fields.
Mora, who was one of 17 CSUB students to receive the Academic Medal for Success, will graduate in June with a degree in psychology and plans to attend graduate school. Turkington will return next year as a fifth-year senior and is a petroleum engineering major.
