Last month, Delta Sigma Pi (DSP) — the nation's largest and first co-ed business fraternity — presented the ASU DSP Gamma Omega chapter with two awards: The provincial award for Most Improved Collegiate Chapter and the regional Outstanding Service Award for a Collegiate Chapter.

"These awards mean a lot to our chapter, as we acknowledge we are still in a time of growth," says Andrew Amazeen (BS Accountancy '24), president of the Gamma Omega chapter. "Our chapter has dubbed this year our renaissance. We have accomplished great things in the past and are taking this new year as an opportunity to change things up and shoot for the stars."

Awards presented to DSP chapters are a testament to chapters' overall excellence, and chapters submit applications annually for evaluation across seven categories. Chapters first compete against their region, and regional winners proceed to compete against other winners in their province. The Gamma Omega chapter is one of six chapters in the Desert Mountain Region. There are seven regions with 45 chapters in the Western Province.

DSP presents the Most Improved Collegiate Chapter Award to the collegiate chapter that shows the most improvement in general operations, professional programs, and membership support. The award criteria includes membership and recruitment metrics, membership retention, fundraising and community events, and national events attended. The Gamma Omega chapter hosted 18 events during the 2022-23 academic year, including a philanthropy week benefitting the Make-A-Wish Foundation and donation drives serving various organizations. The chapter's Feed My Starving Children event brought together 51 active chapter members and 17 pledges.

DSP presents the Outstanding Service Award to the collegiate chapter implementing the most effective and comprehensive program of service to others. DSP selects collegiate chapter awards based on service activity attendance numbers, audiences serviced, and the chapter's role in the event.

Gamma Omega also set a national record by receiving the Chapter of Excellence recognition from DSP's Chapter Management Program (CMP) — the highest recognition of chapter excellence — for the eighth consecutive year. The CMP establishes operational requirements and guidelines for chapter recruitment, membership, finances, and service and leadership initiatives.

"These awards show us the importance of participating in DSP outside our local chapter," says Amazeen. "It is worthwhile to know what happens at a national level and pursue the awards and recognitions they hand out."

Undergraduate Programs Academic Advising Coordinator Marc Ellis became Gamma Omega's chapter advisor this fall after learning about the chapter's recent awards and witnessing students' dedication to professionalism and excellence.

"I am honored to support Delta Sigma Pi as their new chapter advisor and contribute to the organization's academic, professional, and communal initiatives," says Ellis.

W. P. Carey business students established the DSP Gamma Omega chapter in 1951, guided by the organization's four pillars: professionalism, service, brotherhood, and scholarship. The chapter holds several professional development, networking, and philanthropic events and has 102 initiated members.

DSP has prepared undergraduate students to be ethical leaders through professional development, service and philanthropy, leadership training, and social events since the organization's founding in 1907. The fraternity has 10,474 student members and over 218 collegiate chapters nationwide.
