A Model Grant
Description of the event/project, including when it will take place
Phi Eta Sigma will be hosting an induction to welcome new members for the 2014-15 year. We’ll be providing a catered dinner (from Aramark) for our memebers as well as renting equipment from Conference Serices. We’re asking ASBSU to fund a portion of the catering expenses. The induction is on March 14, 2015. We expect 100 people to attend. Our goal is to create a unique evening to recognize the academic achievement of our members and encourage the engagement with our organization during their college experience.
