Pi Sigma Epsilon — a professional fraternity for men and women in the fields of sales, marketing and management — recently held its National Convention in Miami, Florida. Ohio State’s Gamma Nu chapter, with students from Fisher and colleges across campus, sent 30 members and took home multiple awards.

  • Collin Pfaff, outgoing chapter president and a marketing major at Fisher, was honored with the Whan Challenger Award, presented to the collegiate member who best demonstrates the ability to provide leadership to fellow students by serving as a role model.
  • Sarah Beall (marketing), Jesse Curtis (operations), Catherine Tippy (marketing), and Alex Wesel (accounting) defeated 17 other teams to win first place in the case study challenge
  • Tippy, VP of public relations, and Megan Wandtke, current president, were awarded national scholarships from Federated Insurance and 3M.

Overall, the chapter won a first-place prize for its professional development program and finished second for its public relations strategy. Gamma Nu also tied for second place in the convention’s recruitment fair challenge. During the convention, members also took part in workshops and networked with business professionals as well as peers from more than 25 chapters around the nation.

“The 2014 national convention was a major turning point for our chapter,” said Wandtke, who is studying marketing at Fisher. “Gamma Nu had its largest attendance yet and received national recognition. I have never been more proud to be a part of one of the premier chapters in the nation.”
