Thursday, March 03, 2011
CANTON, Mo. – Culver-Stockton College’s chapter of Phi Eta Sigma inducted 45 freshmen into its organization on Feb. 28, 2011. Inductees must be first-year students with a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale at the close of any full-time curricular period during their first year.
“We were thrilled to see 45 students inducted into Phi Eta Sigma this semester,” says Dr. Sue Abegglen, C-SC professor of education and faculty advisor of Phi Eta Sigma. “These are students who have proven they are 'students of excellence' early in their college careers. We trust they will continue to take their studies seriously and make academic excellence a habit in the semesters ahead.” After 20 years as an advisor, this was Dr. Abegglen’s last induction at Culver-Stockton as she is retiring at the end of the academic year. During the induction, Abegglen challenged inductees to continue their college years with high academic achievement.
