Encouraging Student Participation at the National Meeting

Participation at the National Meeting is the highlight of the year for most chapters. It is particularly valuable for second and third-year students to participate and be challenged to return to present a paper. For most Sigma Zeta chapters, the "real action" is at the Nationals. It is there that local chapters are able to network with other students and ideas for local activities as well as for individual research projects emerge. In general, the most active chapters of Sigma Zeta are those that attend the National Meeting. It is there that students catch the true "vision" of Sigma Zeta and return to their home campuses energized in their pursuit of excellence.
