Scholastic Seniors Awarded at Fall Honors Convocation

More than 100 students were recognized for their academic merit and leadership.

On Sunday, Oct. 14, 112 Manhattan College seniors were inducted into Epsilon Sigma Pi, the oldest college-wide honor society on campus.

The Fall Honors Convocation was held in the Chapel of De La Salle and His Brothers and featured keynote speaker, George Kirsch, Ph.D., professor of history at Manhattan and renowned sports historian. Kirsch offered lessons learned during his 40-year career with Manhattan, and concluded with his wife’s favorite prayer..

“It reminds us that what counts in life is not how famous or successful you may become, but rather how you navigate your way through the many challenges that await you,” he said.

Representing all five undergraduate schools, the students received certificates and keys as tokens of achievement for holding GPAs of 3.5 or higher throughout their college careers and engaging in cultural and intellectual activities on campus.

“In accepting induction into Epsilon Sigma Pi, then, you accept a challenge as well as an honor," said Brennan O’Donnell, Ph.D., president of Manhattan College. "A challenge to 'walk in wisdom,' to continue to uphold the high ideals of scholarship, integrity, and hard work that you’ve pursued here during your undergraduate years.”
