Oklahoma Christian said today that the university’s Tau Sigma Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta has won its 13th consecutive (and 14th overall) national Best Chapter Award.  The chapter competed in Division 1, universities with 3,000 and fewer students, and in the Nels A. Cleven category, for universities that have won five or more Best Chapter Awards. 

“We are extremely excited about our students’ continued outstanding performance in chapter activities,” said Dr. John Maple, the group’s sponsor and chair, department of history and political science. “The students deserve all the credit for this excellent achievement.”

Tau Sigma members presented their scholarship at both the Oklahoma Regional Conference and the National Conference, and took first and second in the American History—Undergraduate category at the Oklahoma Regional.  They helped the department of history and political science host History Day (an academic competition for 6th-12th graders), published a journal, and engaged in a number of other activities. 

The chapter also entered volume 16 of the Oklahoma Christian University Journal of Historical Studies in the Nash Journal Award competition.  Volume 15 placed third last year.  Results of that contest are expected in the near future.
