tudent Life & Organizations

The College of Business is home to nearly 20 exceptionally active professional organizations, honor societies, and fraternities. The college's rich history of influential student organizations can be traced back to 1919 when Alpha Kappa Psi began to organize a chapter that would officially charter the following year. Delta Sigma Pi established itself as the second all male fraternity at the school when it established a chapter in 1923. A women's business fraternity, Phi Chi Theta, followed in 1926. The college's Upsilon chapter is currently the largest chapter in all of Alpha Kappa Psi, and likewise the college's Alpha Beta chapter is the largest chapter in all of Delta Sigma Pi. The prestigious Beta Gamma Sigma honor society established its chapter at the school in 1931. The tradition known as Commerce Day was held each spring starting in 1931, and it has since developed into the current Business Week that takes place each spring at the college.
