Phi Beta Delta Honor Society: A Quest for International Discovery

September 08, 2014

“Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.” – Pat Conroy.

The Phi Beta Delta Honor Society inducted thirty-two new members into the College of Staten Island’s Eta Lambda chapter in 2014. Inductees ranged from international and domestic students, such as 2014 valedictorian Blaze Fraser, to staff and faculty members.

The Eta Lambda chapter at CSI currently has more than 200 members. The society acknowledges and honors each new and continuing members’ devotion to international study and travel, their commitment to achieve excellence, and their love for spreading that knowledge across the globe.

Newly inducted member Stephanie Randazzo expressed the impact of the honor society. “Phi Beta Delta Honor Society has broadened my international experience domestically. I have grown through my experience abroad and impacted others because of it.”

The key note speaker of the induction ceremony, Gianpiero Paliaro, expressed that world travel “is definitely one of the most challenging and rewarding life-changing experience a person can have.” Paliaro is the Corporate Office Manager of the Mediterranean Shipping Company. He has personal and international aspirations to make the world a more interconnected place.

The Society offers students multiple opportunities to develop their sense of the world through sponsored events throughout the academic year. The Eta Lambda chapter at CSI has a sponsored trip to tour the United Nations Headquarters in New York City and the New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center in Staten Island. Phi Beta Delta Honor Society also encourages members to pursue international endeavors by holding a career fair with companies that operate on an international level, providing members with the chance to start careers that could bring them across the globe.
