Old Dominion University's Phi Alpha Theta national history honor society chapter has received the National Best Chapter Award in its division (15,000-23,000 students).

Last year, the chapter inducted 51 students and approximately 20 were inducted this fall.

So far this fall, the group has toured the Hampton Museum and sponsored a lecture on Portalan Charts by Richard Pflederer. The tenth edition of the Old Dominion Historical Review has been printed.

Jim Sweeney, associate professor of history, is the chapter's advisor.

Based at the University of South Florida, Phi Alpha Theta is a professional society whose mission is to promote the study of history through the encouragement of research, good teaching, publication and the exchange of learning and ideas among historians.

It seeks to bring students, teachers and writers of history together for intellectual and social exchanges, which promote and assist historical research and publication by our members in a variety of ways.
