DEPARTMENT NEWS: History Does It Again!

The History Department is pleased to announce that Alpha Mu Gamma, Chapman University’s chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, the National History Honors Society, has won the best chapter award in Division 2 (programs without graduate studies) for the fourth year in row. This honor recognizes the outstanding achievements of the student-led organization including an oral history project of Chapman University’s rise to prominence (now available on-line at http://journals.chapman.edu/ojs/index.php/VocesNovae/issue/view/15) which included a student-made video describing the project. The chapter also hosted the southern regional PAT conference where keynote speaker Kevin Starr, the renowned historian of California, received an honorary degree and Chapman students Kirsten Moore (’11) and Chelsea Judy (’11) won first and third prize, respectfully, in the undergraduate research paper competition.
