Students Honored for Achievements
DuBois – Students from a wide variety of academic programs were honored at the 71st Annual Delta Mu Sigma Honors Convocation at Penn State DuBois recently. Awards at the Honors Convocation recognize students for an array of accomplishments, ranging from academic excellence, to overcoming hardships to succeed.
More than 200 Penn State DuBois students are members of Delta Mu Sigma. In order to qualify for membership, students must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or above, and be involved in campus or community service.
Delta Mu Sigma reaches out to DuBois and the surrounding area by offering community service and fundraisers with part of the proceeds benefiting scholarship funds. Members have volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, and organize a haunted house on campus each Halloween, and donate proceeds to local charities.
