Pi Sigma Alpha

pisigmaalphaorangeThe University of Florida’s Beta Gamma chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha provides undergraduates with opportunities to get involved in the community and obtain information about University of Florida’s Political Science Department, internships at the local, state, and national level, current political issues, and networking opportunities with speakers that come to our meetings and events. As the only political science honor society on campus and affiliated with the most esteemed political science honor society in the nation, membership with Pi Sigma Alpha is considered prestigious and we look to develop students with an interest in politics. The purpose of Pi Sigma Alpha is to encourage and recognize superior achievement in the study of government and politics at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Pi Sigma Alpha also offers social events in order to network with other political science students and foster political discussions.

To be considered an active member within the organization, Pi Sigma Alpha expects members to maintain a high level of involvement with the club. Active members are required to attend at least 4 general body meetings, attend 1 social event, 1 community service project event, and engage in one activity with the organization each semester. At the end of each semester, active members will be invited to the End of Semester Banquet paid for by Pi Sigma Alpha and will be considered a full-member in the organization. Information about our events and activities will be distributed periodically throughout the semester. Any questions about involvement within Pi Sigma Alpha should be directed to the executive board.

Pi Sigma Alpha general body meetings are every other Wednesday at 7:00 PM in Anderson Hall room 101. To receive updates about events and meeting reminders, please email ufpisigmaalpha@gmail.com and ask to be added to the list-serve.
