Congratulations, TAK Initiates!

Congratulations to USC’s newest members of Theta Alpha Kappa (TAK), the National Honors Society for Religious Studies and Theology! We were happy to initiate four new members this past Tuesday, at a special dinner held at the University Club.

New members include Kausar Ali, Grant Dixon, Adeel Mohammadi, and Jayme Tsutsuse. Karissa Masciel, who is studying abroad this term, is a continuing member of TAK. She was initiated last year.

I hope you will join us in congratulating our accomplished majors! 

For those of you wishing to join TAK in the future, the requirements are as follows: (1) completion of at least 12 units of REL studies courses; (2) a GPA of at least 3.5 in REL courses; (3) an overall GPA of at least 3.0. We will hold another initiation ceremony in the spring of 2014.

TAK also publishes a journal featuring student writing twice per year. Past issues of the journal can be found in the ACB lounge.
