April 19, 2023
Twenty-five students from the College of Saint Benedict were accepted for induction into the Omega Chapter of Delta Epsilon Sigma (DES) this academic year.
This year’s induction ceremony was held on Friday, March 31.
Select CSB juniors and seniors are inducted into DES each year based on a series of criteria. Students must maintain a 3.9 grade-point average or higher on a 4.0 scale, while also being involved in the community through volunteer and extracurricular activities.
DES is a national Catholic Honor Society with the purpose of recognizing academic accomplishments, dedication to intellectual activity and service to others. CSB has been a member of DES since its beginning in 1940.
