Central Michigan University’s Pi Sigma Epsilon sales fraternity recently sent 17 members of the Zeta Nu Chapter to the annual Pi Sigma Epsilon national convention in Norfolk, Virginia. The convention offers valuable opportunities for students to expand their professional network, learn from industry leaders, connect with employers, and showcase their skills in various competitions.  

The students' hard work and dedication paid off as they took home multiple awards, including scholarships and competition victories.  

As a chapter, CMU placed first in the Pro-Am-Sell-a-Thon Team Competition. This yearlong competition provides an opportunity for students to learn and apply all aspects of the sales process.
