fundsCHAPTERS IN ACTION

On a blustery Friday, March 2, 2018, Pi Gamma Mu Delaware Beta at Wilmington University inducted 49 new members into the Chapter. The combined Honor Societies Induction ceremony from the College of Social & Behavioral Sciences was celebrated with a luncheon as members from five other honor societies were also inducted.  The induction was the culmination of an academic year of hard work and great service!  The faculty chapter sponsor of the Delaware Beta Chapter is Dr. Johanna Bishop, Director, Behavioral Science Programs. 

During the 2017-18 academic year, the chapter held twelve meetings at five different campuses.  Each month's meeting had a focus area.  In November the focus was on orientation to Pi Gamma Mu, election of officers, and discussion about service projects.  In December the chapter had a guest speaker who spoke about graduate school options and learning elevator speech.  In January there was another guest speaker who presented about career options.  In February the guest spoke about resume writing.

The Chapter Sponsor, Dr. Johanna Bishop, noted that conducting this many meetings at different campuses was only possible with the collaboration of Chair, Dr. Stephanie Berridge, and Adjunct Program Coordinators, Prof. Scott George and Dr. Shiloh Andrus.

On a 49 degree day with a blustery north wind, the chapter participated in an annual Polar Bear Plunge and raised $3949.00.  The team ranked #19 out of 267 teams!  "Team Pi Gamma Mu at Wilmu" received a total of 119 donations.  Students support the plunge in any one of the following ways: plunge with the team; cheer for the team from the beach; or make a donation to the plunge effort.  The plunge represents just one of the many service projects the members of the chapter engaged in throughout the year.  Projects included coaching youth sports, volunteering at a food pantry, a homeless shelter, a school, a YMCA, a Veteran's home, a soup kitchen, picking up trash in public parks, cooking thanksgiving dinner for the homeless, and more.
