Two Benedictine University students were inducted last spring into Sigma Pi Sigma, the national honor society in Physics. Sigma Pi Sigma exists to honor outstanding scholarship in physics, encourage interest in physics among students at all levels and promote an attitude of service of its members towards their fellow students, colleagues and the public. Sigma Pi Sigma also provides a fellowship of persons who have excelled in physics. Sigma Pi Sigma membership chapters are restricted to colleges and universities of recognized standing that offer a strong physics major. The chapters receive into membership undergraduate and graduate students, faculty members and a few others in closely-related fields. Students elected to membership must attain high standards of general scholarship and outstanding achievement in physics. The spring inductees into Sigma Pi Sigma were Christian H. Arnoux, the son of Mark and Marilyn Arnoux of Arlington Heights and a May 2009 cum laude graduate of Benedictine University with a Bachelor of Arts in Engineering Science; and Brian T. Crowley, the son of Kevin and Marlene Crowley of Wood Dale and a May 2090 cum laude graduate of Benedictine University with a Bachelor of Arts in Engineering Science.
