Today is International Day of Women and Girls in Science, a celebration of the integral role women play in science and technology fields. There has been a push in recent years to empower girls and women to find an interest in science, as there has been a decline in women embarking on STEM careers. Organizations like The Scientista Foundation are dedicated to such a cause.
We’re all stuck inside a bit more right now and looking for things to do to occupy our time. Art is a great outlet for so many and craft stores have been seeing items fly off their shelves, presumably by those of us looking for a relaxing pastime or something enriching to do with the kids in between virtual learning. Unsurprisingly for Kappa Pi members, art is often seen as a therapy, which is perfect for 2020!
Up in New England where our office is located, the days are getting shorter and the weather is much colder. The rainy day today got us thinking about Chi Epsilon Pi, the honor society for students who dedicate themselves to the study of meteorology!
In celebration and recognition of Indigenous Peoples Day, we’re taking a look at Bacone College in Oklahoma which is known as a historic Native American-serving institution, having begun classes in “Indian Territory” long before Oklahoma was formed as a state.
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!
As an American jurist serving on The Supreme Court from 1993-2020, Ruth Bader Ginsburg spent much of her career as an advocate for women’s rights, gender equality, and civil rights and became a bit of a celebrity due to her short-stature, quiet demeanor, and strong dissents. Her educational career was also quite impressive and paved the way for her court accomplishments!
Picking up your graduation cap & gown is such an exciting experience! It all starts to sink in that you’ll soon be walking across the stage and ending a chapter of your long academic career. Everyone blends together across the sea of graduates during the ceremony, but there are some distinguishing features to wear, thanks to honor societies.
March is Women’s History Month and we’ll be highlighting women-centered colleges and organizations. It’s a bit eye-opening to learn that despite colleges being established in the The United States in 1636, women were not allowed to attend and receive a higher education/baccalaureate degree until 1837. Oberlin College in Ohio was the pioneer.
