Delta-Psi Chapter Celebrates Best Chapter Award with Pizza Party

Oct 9, 2009 - The Delta-Psi Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society celebrated its 2009 Best Chapter Award with a pizza party at the home of Dr. Stephen Carls, the chapter’s faculty advisor, on October 9, 2009. Seventeen people attended the event, including all full-time history faculty members. Among the menu items were several homemade foods - pizza, special vegetable salads, chocolate chip cookies, and pumpkin cheesecake. Dr. Carls asked students to look through publishers’ catalogs at the party and make suggestions for the purchase of history books for Union’s library with the $250 in prize money that came with the Best Chapter Award honor. Informal conversation among faculty and students capped the evening’s activities.
