Awards

President's Cup

The President’s Cup is awarded based upon a set of criteria outlined by the Fraternity and Sorority Life Office. All chapters are scored numerically based upon their End of Semester Report and were awarded points in categories that include, but are not limited to, involvement, outreach, academics, and leadership. Those chapters who scored 90% or higher for two consecutive semesters, became finalists for the President’s Cup. Each qualifying organization then presented to a panel of judges, who scored the finalists.
