Sigma Beta Delta

The Hans A. Nielsen College of Business honored 10 students who attained superior academic records by inducting them into the international honor society, Sigma Beta Delta, on April 18. B. Keith Faulkner delivered the keynote address for the ceremony and was inducted as an honorary member.    

To qualify for an invitation to join Sigma Beta Delta, students majoring in business must be in the top 20% of their junior, senior or second-year graduate classes.

The purposes of Sigma Beta are to encourage and recognize scholarship among students of business, management, and administration; and to encourage and promote aspirations towards personal and professional improvement and a life distinguished by honorable service to humankind. Sigma Beta Delta is the International Honor Society in Business, Management, and Administration. It installed its first chapter in 1994. The Charleston Southern University chapter was established in 1999.

Alpha Chi

Forty-nine Charleston Southern students were inducted into the South Carolina Zeta Chapter of Alpha Chi at the annual induction ceremony on April 3.

Faculty sponsors Dr. Maxwell Rollins, Dr. Charles Smedley, and Dr. John Kuykendall conducted the induction ceremony honoring the new members’ academic achievement. Rollins said, “The achievements of these scholars indicate they understand and uphold the ideals of Alpha Chi – truth and character.”

Speakers for the ceremony were B. Keith Faulkner, president, and Dr. Michael Wilder, provost and vice president for academic affairs. 

Alpha Chi, founded in 1922, celebrated its 102nd anniversary this year. It is a coeducational society whose purpose is to promote academic excellence and exemplary character among college and university students and to honor those who achieve such distinction. Alpha Chi is a general honor society that admits students from all academic disciplines and is a member in good standing of the Association of College Honor Societies. To qualify for an invitation, students must be in the top 10% of their junior or senior class.
