Congratulations to Delta Lambda Phi’s Omega Chapter for making their presence make a difference at the University of Arizona, which has given the Chapter numerous awards for community involvement, advocacy, and leadership.

Delta Lambda Phi also earned local awards. Among the UA awards, the fraternity was awarded the Most Outstanding Community Service Program, Most Outstanding Collaborative Program, Most Outstanding Social Justice Advocate and the chapter also received the President Award for Servant Leadership.

“These awards mean the world to our chapter as it shows that we are living out our fraternity motto to ‘make our presence make a difference,'” said Sean Rhude, vice president of Delta Lambda Phi, the Omega Chapter, who also is a UA business management junior.

“We are thrilled to see that our efforts are garnering attention and support from both our international office and our local campus community,” Rhude also said. “It drives our brothers to continue to try and make a difference as well as shows them that we can accomplish anything to which we set our minds.”

The chapter, which was founded at the UA six years ago, has 12 active members and more than 80 past members, Rhude said. He noted that the organization supports the Southern Arizona Aids Foundation, Wingspan, the Eon Youth lounge and the UA Office of LGBTQ Affairs.
