Upcoming Phi Alpha Theta Events - Spring 2014

A message from the PAT President, Shirley Buchanan:

"Welcome to Spring Semester!

The PAT Biennial Convention in New Mexico was a resounding success! All of our Alpha Beta Epsilon members did an excellent job at their presentations and we also accepted an award for Dr. Robert McGlone honoring his thirty years of service to Phi Alpha Theta. We have posted some pictures and video clips at our Facebook page, so check it out!

We also worked on new ideas for our chapter and we will have our first meeting of the spring semester on Tuesday, Jan. 28th from 5:30 – 7:00 pm in the History Lounge (SAK B210). We will be recruiting new members and we will continue organizing for our 30th Annual Hawaiʻi Regional Conference to be held at Campus Center on Saturday, March 8th. We will also be planning other upcoming events like our next book sale which will be held on Wednesday, February 5th."
