The Cortland Zeta Delta chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha, the national honor society formed to recognize outstanding achievement in political science, formally inducted six students in a Dec. 10 ceremony.

The inductees were Lawrence Chappy, Sarah Godden, William Harklerode, Thomas Irving, Margaret Place and Kathleen Raedy.

Membership in Pi Sigma Alpha is open to juniors, seniors and graduate students enrolled in programs of political science at institutions where chapters are located. Undergraduates must be at least juniors who have completed a minimum of 10 credit hours in political science, including at least one upper-division course, with B or higher average grade. They also must have achieved an overall GPA placing them in the top one-third of their junior or senior class. They need not be political science majors to qualify for membership.

Robert Spitzer advises the Zeta Delta chapter. Formed in 1970, it is one of the first chapters to be established among political science departments in the SUNY system.
