For the third time in three years, the Delta Sigma Phi chapter at Missouri University of Science and Technology has been awarded the fraternity’s highest honor.
Missouri S&T’s Delta Epsilon chapter of Delta Sigma Phi received the fraternity’s Pyramid of Excellence Award. The award is presented annually to chapters that demonstrate excellence in all areas of chapter operations and programming.
The fraternity’s national organization cited Missouri S&T’s chapter for surpassing both the all-campus and all-men’s GPA and for having 100 percent retention during the last school year. S&T’s chapter was also recognized for having 53.1 percent of its members in leadership positions in an organization outside of Delta Sigma Phi. Ninety-three percent of the chapter met or exceeded the national minimum of 10 service hours per year.
The original Delta Sigma Phi chapter at Missouri S&T was disbanded in the 1990s after losing its charter status. The fraternity was reorganized in 2006 as a colony and regained its charter in August 2008. In 2009, the fraternity moved into a new house, the Ramsey Building at Eighth and Rolla streets in downtown Rolla.
