DUBOIS – The Delta Mu Sigma Honor Society at Penn State DuBois recently inducted its new members for the 2012 fall semester at the annual induction luncheon. The new inductees join the ranks of nearly 150 honor society members on campus.
In order to qualify for membership, students must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or above and be involved in campus or community service.
“We would like to congratulate you for achieving your academic success and being inducted into one of the most prestigious and oldest of honors societies at Penn State University,” Delta Mu Sigma Board Chairman Adam Snyder told his fellow students. “We are not just an honors society; we are also a community service organization, which helps many people around our campus and community. It is our hope that you will become involved with our various campus events.”
Delta Mu Sigma reaches out to DuBois and the surrounding area by offering community service, such as a “Dine Out” event at Luigi’s Restaurant, with part of the proceeds benefiting scholarship funds. Members have volunteered with organizations like Habitat for Humanity and organized a haunted house on campus each Halloween and donated proceeds to local charities. This year’s haunted house is planned for Oct. 18 – 20 on campus.
