Steady Growth of Pi Sigma Alpha

The ECU chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha looks forward to a year of growth and increased vitality. Members in the Epsilon Mu chapter of this national political science honor society has risen to fifteen. The chapter adviser, Dr. Carl McCurley, and the chapter president, Andrew Vincent, have sought to make membership in the society more dynamic by establishing a system of committees (one for community service, one for public relations and publicity, and a third for fundraising) that will provide the members with ample opportunity for contributions of their creativity and energy.
