SCHOLARSHIP MEDAL

MedalThe Pi Gamma Mu scholarship medal is a time-honored tradition of the society.  This award has been in use since the early days of the organization.  Once a year chapters have the privilege of awarding one medal to a person who has distinguished him/herself in the social sciences.  It has usually been given to an outstanding student as a prize for scholarship and/or service.  However, it may also go to some other person deserving recognition in this field or to a faculty officer of a Pi Gamma Mu chapter.

ACHS MEMBERSHIP PROTECTS THE LEGITIMACY OF HONOR SOCIETIES

Honor SocietyPi Gamma Mu is one of 70 members of the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS), which is the authority on standards and definitions for the honor society movement. ACHS has stepped up efforts to alert the higher education community to the standards of traditional honor societies. In contrast, some new so-called honor societies exist online and allow self-nomination, accepting fees with no questions asked. If in doubt about an organization, you can check out the ACHS Web site (www.achshonor.org) for the list of honor societies that are members.
