Four students were inducted into Wesleyan's Omega Zeta Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta at the Social Science Honors Reception on April 20.
Phi Alph Theta is an international honor society for undergraduate, graduate students and professors of history. The Omega Zeta Chapter was chartered at Wesleyan in 1969. The society currently has more than 350,000 members, with about 9,500 new members joining each year through 860 local chapters.
Lifetime membership is based on high standards of academic performance in history courses. Inductees will receive a subscription to the Phi Alpha Theta journal, The Historian and receive the PAT Newletter. The society also offers a number of scholarships for graduate study and encourages member participation in the national as well as regional conferences, such as the Northeast Texas Regional Phi Alpha Theta History Conference to be held at Texas Wesleyan in Spring 2016.
