Phi Alpha Theta Celebrates Best Chapter Award with Pizza Party

Oct 7, 2011

The Delta-Psi Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society celebrated its 9th straight Best Chapter Award with a homemade pizza party at the home of Dr. Stephen Carls on October 7, 2011. There were 28 people who participated in the event, which included several kinds of pizza, a tossed salad, homemade cookies, and candy bars. During the get-together, several Phi Alpha Theta members looked at a list of new history book titles, and circled those that they would like the chapter to purchase for Union’s library with the $250 prize money received as a part of its 2011 Best Chapter Award.
