Beta Alpha Psi Named Superior Chapter
EIU's Theta Omega Chapter of Beta Alpha Psi received "Superior Chapter" status in 2012. A superior rating is given for overall performance of the chapter, which includes the number of external speakers invited, the quality of the speakers invited, student hours invested in professional and service activities, diversity initiatives, recruitment, and attendance at national/regional meetings. Considering that there are 296 chapters of Beta Alpha Psi throughout the world, it is quite a distinction to be named a superior chapter. Congratulations to the student members and faculty advisors of the Theta Omega Chapter attaining this honor.
