History PhD Students Inducted into Alpha Sigma Nu
The only honor society permitted to bear the name Jesuit, Alpha Sigma Nu is the international honor society of Jesuit institutions of higher education. The society was founded in 1915 to honor a select number of students each year on the basis of scholarship, loyalty, and service. Alpha Sigma Nu is unique among honor societies in that it seeks to identify the most promising students in Jesuit schools. Inductees demonstrate an intelligent appreciation of and commitment to the ideals - intellectual, social, moral, and religious - of Jesuit higher education. Selection to Alpha Sigma Nu is one of the highest honors that can be given on a Jesuit campus.
Inducted this year from the History Department's graduate program were Rachel Boyle, a U.S. and Public History PhD Candidate; Katherine Macica, a U.S. and Public History PhD Candidate; and Hope Shannon, a U.S. and Public History PhD student.
Congratulations to Rachel, Katie, and Hope!
