Crown of Excellence

Delta Nu-A is 1987 top chapter Delta Nu-A at General Motors Institute in Flint, Ml, is the second to receive the Crown of Excellence Award since its introduction in 1986. Not only does the recipient have the distinction of being recognized as Alpha Sigma Alpha 's most outstanding chapter, the chapter will receive the traveling Crown of Excellence bowl and a plaque for permanent display. To qualify for the award, the chapter had to meet several requirements. As one of three sororities at GMI, Alpha Sigma Alpha ranked number one in scholastic achievement. Delta Nu-A proudly boasts a 86.5% overall average. Several incentive plans are used to maintain high scholastics. A scholarship dangle is given to the active member who raises her GPA the most from the previous semester. As part of the pledge program, pledges are required to earn 12 pearls (three for each aim) and can earn a pearl by maintaining an 85% GPA. Verbal recognition is given during chapter meetings to those on the dean's list. Another Crown requirement states the chapter must participate in at least two projects yearly involving the national philanthropy, Special Olympics. Delta Nu-A members sponsor an annual dancea-than for which contributions are given from local companies and students. The chapter also has a 'tuck-in' sale. An Alpha Sigma Alpha member will read a story, supply cookies and milk and tuck in all recipients. All proceeds go to Special Olympics. A community organized event for Special Olympics is

the annual 1OK Bobby Crim race held in Flint, MI. The runners receive donations, which go to Special Olympics, and Delta Nu members contribute by setting up water stands for runners throughout the course. Other Crown credits include taking quota set for the year at GMI and initiating 95% of the pledge class. One aspect, which is not a criteria of the Crownaward but one for which Delta Nu-A is noted, is the distinction of being one of two Alpha Sigma Alpha sororities on the GMI campus. GMI is structured as a co-op college and offers five degrees: four engineering and one management. The students, sponsored by a division of General Motors or some other major corporation, attend classes for three consecutive months and then have a work assignment for three months. While Delta Nu-A is attending classes, Delta Nu-B is working ; while Delta Nu -B is attending classes, Delta Nu-A is working. Sound confusing? Not really, but it is an exercise in efficiency. * * *
