Phi Sigma Sigma Chapter At Clarkson Honored With National Award

The Phi Sigma Sigma National Women’s Fraternity of Boca Raton, Fla., has recognized its Clarkson University chapter for outstanding academic achievement.

The Gamma Mu chapter was awarded the Phi Sigma Sigma National Magma Scholarship award. Academically this past year, the chapter succeeded in achieving cumulative grade point averages of 3.06 in the fall semester, and 2.97 in the spring semester.

"Phi Sigma Sigma has been a leader in scholarship and philanthropic events for several years," says Jason C. Libby, Greek Affairs coordinator at Clarkson University. "It is very exciting to see another Clarkson chapter being  recognized for its achievements and commitment to high standards."

This past year, the chapter raised over $700 for the National Kidney Foundation during their annual 12-hour “Rock-A-Thon” and “Kisses for Quarters” events.  To date, the national organization has contributed over $250,000 to the National Kidney Foundation.  The chapter also participated in the Potsdam Diversity Festival and organized an Easter egg hunt for area children.

Clarkson University fraternities and sororities must meet high standards of academic performance, conduct and community service.

The Phi Sigma Sigma National Women’s Fraternity was founded in 1913 and has 116 active undergraduate chapters in the United States. The Gamma Mu chapter was founded in 1977.
