Penn State Fayette students honored for academic excellence

11/27/2007 —
Fifty-seven students at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus were honored November 27 for academic achievement during a special ceremony as they were initiated into Pi Sigma Phi. Pi Sigma Phi is a scholastic honor society that recognizes academic achievement of Penn State Fayette students who have completed 30 credits with a GPA of at least 3.5. The mission of Pi Sigma Phi is to promote higher standards of learning and high scholastic attainment.

Penn State Fayette Chancellor Emmanuel Osagie observes, “The achievement of these students deserves to be held up as an example of their drive and desire to reach for the top, not only in their academic pursuits, but also as they travel down their life paths. While all of our students can achieve excellence, we particularly acknowledge these students that have applied themselves in spite of challenging course work and family and work obligations.”
