On Friday, May 11, Fordham's political science department hosted an induction ceremony for Pi Sigma Alpha, the national political science honor society. Approximately 30 students were inducted at the ceremony, which was held at the O’Keefe Commons on the Rose Hill campus.
“Each of you has been selected for membership because you represent the very best of our majors,” said Robert J. Hume, Ph.D., the Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies (Political Science), in his remarks.
“We have enjoyed having you in the classroom, and we think that you should be commended for your commitment to scholarship and your high level of achievement.”

Students also heard a faculty address by Melissa Labonte, Ph.D., assistant professor in the political science department.
Membership in Pi Sigma Alpha is offered to undergraduates in the top third of their class who have completed at least one-half of the credits required for the baccalaureate degree. Fordham’s chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha, Delta Zeta, restricts membership to graduating seniors.
