Lehigh's Award Winning Chapters

Each summer at fraternity and sorority inter/national conventions and conclaves, the best of the best chapters are recognized for their outstanding achievements over the past one to two years. In addition to Lehigh's comprehensive Accreditation process, many of our chapters completed similar processes for their inter/national organizations, often receiving awards as a result of their hard work and commitment to the values and ideals of their fraternity or sorority.

We're proud to announce that this summer three Lehigh chapters were recognized as a top chapter in their respective inter/national organizations - Alpha Omicron Pi sorority, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., and Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. Congratulations on this outstanding achievement and thank you for representing the Lehigh Greek community so well!
