The Anderson University Falls School of Business, members of Delta Mu Delta, received two honors recently. Current student Casey Thomas and 2013 graduate Andrew Beechler were both awarded a $1,000 scholarship through the 2013 Delta Mu Delta Scholarship.

Delta Mu Delta is the National Academic Honor Society for business subjects.

“As advisor to our Delta Mu Delta chapter I'm privileged to get to know wonderful students each year whose academic achievements deserve to be honored,” said Dr. Doyle Lucas, professor of management and DBA Program director in the Falls School of Business.

Twelve Anderson University students have received a scholarship award through Delta Mu Delta since their inception in 2003, with awards earned for each of the past nine years.

AU's Gamma Zeta Chapter of Delta Mu Delta was also recently awarded a STAR Chapter Award. The criteria for the STAR Delta Mu Delta Chapter award are those chapters that exceed expectations by doing at least two of the following: inducting either at least 80 percent of its eligible candidates or more candidates than the previous year, participating in the scholarship program, or completing a community-service project or business-related activity on campus.

“This is the second time that our Gamma Zeta chapter has received the STAR Chapter award,” added Lucas. “It's the students' academic achievements and their participation in the scholarship program that enabled us to reach this honor this year.”

Anderson University is a private Christian university of about 2,600 undergraduate and graduate students in central Indiana. Anderson University continues to be recognized as one of America's top colleges by U.S. News and World Report, The Princeton Review, and Forbes.
