Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 29, 2011
Calvin Berman of Beverly Hills, California, has recently been recognized and congratulated for his commendable academic achievement by Alpha Lambda Delta and Phi Eta Sigma, both honor fraternities at the University of Texas at Austin.
Alpha Lambda Delta and Phi Eta Sigma were founded at the University of Illinois in the early 1920’s with the aim of encouraging high achieving students to continue their scholastic excellence. Even now, these fraternities seek to congratulate students who show scholastic promise in their first semester of college and strive to support further developing these top-notch first year scholars.
For The University of Texas at Austin and other universities that maintain Alpha Lambda Delta and Phi Eta Sigma chapters, only students in the top 20 percentile of their classes are eligible for recognition. At the time of the honoring, Berman exceeded the requirements of earning a 3.5 grade point average during his first semester of at least 12 hours. In spring of this year, Berman was recognized as a result of earning a 3.84 grade point average after taking 13 hours during his first semester at the University.
“To be recognized for my academic effort by such renowned organizations is extremely gratifying,” says Berman. “I will continue to dedicate myself to scholarship and learning.”
Berman intends to graduate this coming May, one full year ahead of schedule, and plans to start law school next fall.
