Sigma Beta Delta International Business Honor Society Inducts 32 RSU Students

The Rogers State University chapter of the Sigma Beta Delta International Business Honor Society inducted 32 students during a ceremony last month at the Centennial Center.

To qualify for Sigma Beta Delta, RSU students working toward a bachelor's degree in the School of Business and Technology must rank in the top 10 percent of the junior class or 20 percent of the senior class.

"Sigma Beta Delta allows us to recognize scholarship and accomplishments among students in the school of business, and to encourage aspirations toward personal and professional improvements and a life distinguished by honorable service," said Dr. Bruce Garrison, dean of the RSU School of Business and Technology.

Sigma Beta Delta was created as a business honor society for institutions with regional accreditation and has established more than 350 chapters in 47 states and three international chapters. Sigma Beta Delta provides an opportunity for RSU faculty to confer international recognition on qualifying students based on their outstanding academic achievements in the School of Business and Technology.

The Rogers State University Chapter was formally installed on Oct. 10, 2005.
