Mount Union Greek Academic Honor Society Receives National Award
April 22, 2010
Mount Union College's chapter of Gamma Sigma Alpha, a national Greek academic honor society, recently received an award recognizing them nationally for their achievement in academic excellence.
The award goes to the Greek community in each region with a grade point average (GPA) that is the highest above their campus undergraduate GPA. The awards are made each semester with recipients receiving a plaque and recognition at the Regional conferences.
The president of Gamma Sigma Alpha, senior Jessica Raber of Jewett, said, "I have had the unique opportunity to network with other outstanding Greek students, as well as college faculty and administration, through an integral part of the society's goals. The bonds of scholarship develop into the bonds of friendship and mutual respect between members, as they participate in Gamma Sigma Alpha."
Gamma Sigma Alpha was founded to promote intellectual interaction between Greek students and the academic community. The purpose of the Society is to promote the advancement of education among Greeks; to instill a greater spirit of cooperation among Greek students and organizations and to encourage excellence in scholarship.
