The 37 juniors, 23 seniors and 30 graduate students represent the top 10 percent of the junior and senior classes and the top 20 percent of the graduate class.
Two CBA faculty members: Thomas Costigan, instructor in finance and Li Wang, assistant professor of accounting, were also inducted.
Several students also received individual recognition for their academic success and extracurricular and/or community activities. They are: Alicia Bokman-Nathaniel, Outstanding Junior; Melissa Polcen, Outstanding Senior; Mark Graziani, Outstanding Graduate Student award; and Ian MacEwen, recipient of the $1,000 Beta Gamma Sigma Scholarship for the 2010-2011 academic year.
