Pi Sigma Alpha Named Best Chapter

The National Political Science Honor Society awarded the University of St. Thomas Pi Sigma Alpha honor society as one of six Best Chapter awards for chapters in schools with enrollment of fewer than 5,000 students for the 2012-13 school year.

The award recognizes local chapters that are particularly active in their departments and universities and exhibit high levels of energy and creativity in furthering the goals of the honor society.

A $250 cash prize was included with the award. Pi Sigma Alpha will use the prize to organize an activity or event during the 2013-14 year.

“I was very proud of the hard work our chapter did in the 2012-13 year to be awarded this very prestigious award,” said Dr. Jean-Philippe Faletta, associate professor of political science and Pi Sigma Alpha faculty advisor. “I want to give kudos to all of the hardworking participants.”

Founded in 2002, UST’s Pi Sigma Alpha honor society inducts about 20 members a year. With roughly 50 current undergraduate members, the honor society, in conjunction with the Pi Sigma Alpha student club organizes lectures and panel discussions and serves the community through programs such as voter registration.
