Earlier this week we talked about the remarkable academic achievements of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, including her membership of Phi Kappa Phi. So, what does it take to be a member of an honor society with a Supreme Court Justice alum? We’re going to find out!
Fall sports are back in action with the start of the college football season this week! While games look different this year due to Covid-19, there’s still a sense of normalcy seeing players back on the field and we’re excited about it!

We’re not sure about you, but we’re counting down the days to the end of 2020!

Do you know who would be able to help us out with this? Members of Pi Mu Epsilon -- The Mathematics Honor Society!

What did the graduate do to earn those? We’re taking a look at a few of the more widely-known honors and the meaning behind them.
Commencement ceremonies hold a lot of tradition, and we’ve previously discussed a few of them, including the history of the attire right down to why graduates toss part of that attire in the air. But there’s one little, yet defining tradition that happens right before the caps fly in the air: the turning of the tassel.
