The President′s Cup

The Trine President’s Cup is the highest award that can be received by a Greek sorority and fraternity. This award exemplifies commitment to making the Trine Greek system the best that it can be. The 2011-2012 President’s Cups were awarded to Gamma Phi Epsilon and Delta Chi.

Gamma Phi Epsilon was founded Feb. 14, 1995, on the pillars of friendship, trust and commitment and currently has 27 active members. Having the highest cumulative GPA for all Greek organizations with a 3.2 for 2011 and volunteering 630 hours to their community, these women stood out and set an example for extraordinary women at Trine University.

Every year, the brothers of Delta Chi give their time and effort to bettering Trine University, both on and off campus. Last year, Delta Chi had over 1,800 volunteer hours and raised almost $7,000 for the Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research. On campus, their efforts went toward sponsoring events such as the Industry Night career fair, the American Red Cross blood drive each semester, and the annual Dash for a Cure 5k run and walk. Off campus, their efforts ranged from closing Camp Arcadia in Northern Michigan during the fall, and volunteering at the Warrior Dash in Crawfordsville during the summer. The brothers of Delta Chi also boast the highest cumulative fraternity GPA on campus.
