Cal State Fullerton business students in the university’s chapter of the Delta Sigma Pi professional business fraternity are celebrating three awards received this fall from the fraternity’s national headquarters encompassing financial operations, professional activities and overall outstanding chapter status. The awards were announced on the Delta Sigma Pi website in October.
“To win numerous awards is a testament to the chapter’s overall excellence,” wrote Megan Allen, communications specialist at the Delta Sigma Pi national headquarters in Oxford, Ohio.
Earning the awards during the COVID-19 pandemic and the move to virtual learning makes the achievement even more remarkable.
The CSUF chapter netted the R. Nelson Mitchell Outstanding Collegiate Chapter Award, a regional accolade for chapters that best promote the aims and ideals of the fraternity through actions and activities; the Outstanding Professional Activities Award, bestowed at the regional level to chapters that plan and implement the most effective professional development program; and the regional Outstanding Financial Operations Award, given for best fundraising and financial management.
Founded in 1907, Delta Sigma Pi is among the largest co-ed business fraternities in the United States, with more than 260,000 initiates.
