Lancaster – Ohio University Lancaster | Pickerington’s student organization, Lambda Pi Eta, won the Scripps College of Communication Student Organization of the Year award. It’s the first time a regional campus student organization has been recognized in this way by the Scripps College. The group was honored last night at the college’s annual celebration in Athens.
Each year the Scripps College of Communication conducts the Student Organization of the Year Contest in an effort to recognize and reward outstanding accomplishments of student organizations.
In its application for consideration, Lambda Pi Eta had to provide a two- to three-page narrative detailing what it had accomplished during Spring Semester of the previous year and/or Fall Semester of the current year, along with example activities.The group also had to include a creative package of supporting materials that provided evidence of excellence with respect to these activities.
A panel of judges, made up of industry professionals on the Dean’s Advisory Council, evaluated all submissions to identify a winning entry. The judges submitted this comment in selecting Lambda Pi Eta as this year’s winner.
"This organization is small but mighty. We are impressed by their service to the region and the number of activities they have executed given the fact that all of the students on this campus are, essentially, what would be commuter students on the main campus."
Lambda Pi Eta was awarded a $1,000 cash prize to be used for the student organization. Scripps College of Communication Dean Scott Titsworth plans to come to Lancaster later this semester to recognize Lambda Pi Eta on its home campus.
