MTSU chapter wins national honor society award for partnering with alumni

An MTSU honor fraternity is being hailed for its unceasing engagement with the university’s alumni.

MTSU’s Beta Psi chapter of Phi Sigma Pi received the Charles W. Chance Excellence in Alumni Relations Award at the 2022 Phi Sigma Pi National Honor Fraternity National Convention, which was held July 28-30 in Washington, D.C.

The award is presented annually to the chapter that succeeds in such areas as sound communication, financial support and alumni participation in chapter events. MTSU’s chapter consistently collaborated with alumni to clean up a walking/biking path, clearing trash and preserving the ecosystem. The chapter was founded in 1995 and has won numerous national awards, including the Most Improved Old Chapter Award in 2018.

“It is greatly encouraging to receive an award at a national level, especially with our chapter being so small in number, and it gives us that much more motivation to keep going and making the differences that we can in our community,” said chapter president Abigail Miga, a senior biochemistry major from Murfreesboro. 

Phi Sigma Pi, now based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, was founded in 1916 at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg, Missouri. It has more than 6,000 members at more than 150 colleges and universities nationwide.

Members must be undergraduates who have completed at least one semester or quarter of college coursework and have earned a minimum 3.0 GPA. Membership is open to students in any major who have met these requirements. Service projects, fundraisers and educational programs are some of the ways that chapters strive to promote scholarship, leadership and fellowship.
