The MSU chapter of Pi Sigma Epsilon was recognized with the Top New Chapter Award at the Pi Sigma Epsilon National Conference March 26 in Milwaukee.
Pi Sigma Epsilon is the nation’s only professional fraternity that focuses on students interested in careers in sales and marketing.
MSU’s chapter started in the fall of 2014 with a few students putting together meetings and trying to attract fellow students. Since spring of 2015, the chapter has recruited three corporate sponsors, grown membership by 40 percent, and brought in professionals to speak at nearly every chapter meeting.
“This group is quickly becoming a pipeline for freshmen and sophomore students interested in the marketing major and sales leadership minor,” said Stephanie Mangus, assistant professor of marketing. “As their advisor, I am so proud of how hard they have worked this year to earn this accomplishment.”
“Being recognized on a national level with the Top New Chapter award is extremely rewarding and reflective of the hard work we have put in this year. I look forward to seeing what else our chapter will accomplish in the upcoming year,” said Holly Baranowski (BA Supply Chain Management ’17), chapter president.
The award was presented at the PSE National Conference, hosted in conjunction with the National Conference in Sales Management.
