History Honor Society Is Recognized
Dec. 13, 2013
For the 32nd year in a row, Cal State Fullerton's Theta-Pi Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, the history honor society, has received the organization's "Best Chapter Award" for accomplishments in promoting the mission of the honor society on the local level. Because of its long-standing accomplishments in this area, the chapter also received the "Nels A. Cleven Award," which honors regional chapters recognized five or more times as "best chapters."
The honor will be presented to the chapter in January during the society's national biennial convention in Albuquerque, N.M. "This recognition is evidence of the commitment of our students and their faculty mentors to excellence in historical scholarship," says Jochen Burgtorf, chair and professor of history.
