Question A new way to determine the best Greek Campuses?

As always there are various media outlets that post what colleges have the best greek system, basing it on things like % of students that are greek, the popularity of greek parties, the # of greek parties, the lack of antagonism between GDI's/Greeks, whatever.

Why is there not a ranking that uses what we as Greeks really value...

Now I know that many, if not all, GLO's have conventions in which awards are given out to exemplrary chapters, and most have some form of "Top" award given to either one or a handful of chapters. In an effort to determine what Greek system is fulfilling the goals of our Organizations the best, I'm asking GC'ers to post which chapters won their GLO's top award at your most recent convention.

For Beta Theta Pi, four chapters won the John Reily Knox award for Chapter Excellence at the 163rd Annual Convention.


Nebraska
Kansas State
Northwestern
Miami (OH)

This is from our 1999-2001 Biennial Convention awards listing, as posted on our website.

Jessie Wallace Hughan Award : To honor one collegiate chapter with the most outstanding service to college or community and fulfillment of obligations to Alpha Omicron Pi. This Founders' Award is given to AOII's top chapter from those receiving the Ruby Award for Distinguished Chapters.

Delta Omega
Murray State University, Murray, KY

Lambda Sigma
University of Georgia, Athens, GA

Sigma Nu's Rock Chapter award went out to several schools. Oklahoma State, Purdue and Ole Miss were some that come immediately to mind. There were a few others.

An update (and to bump this up)...out of nowhere my Leadership professor (who is one of the chapter advisors for Gamma Phi Beta) told my leadership class that 4 sorority chapters at Nebraska received top honors at recent National Conventions.

They are:
Gamma Phi Beta
Chi Omega
Kappa Alpha Theta
Alpha Phi

I think that puts Nebraska at a total of 5 with these 4 and my own Beta chapter...anyone else care to post?

I'm proud to say that my own chapter came home with the most honors at the last convention. We dont have an actual award for the "best" chapter, but we came home with the most awards, including: most philanthropies, most spirit, most attending sisters, most attending alumni, leadership, and kindness, among others. PROUD TO BE A SISTER OF KAPPA UPSILON!
Interesting fact: in my sorority it is perfectly fine to wear your chapter designation on shirts as well as your national letters.. so some days i wear kdPhi, some days i wear kappa upsilon. all of our sorority chapters start with Kappa, as well, so we have kappa iota, kappa gamma, and so on. the guys, though, can be just iota, gamma, or upsilon. just thought i'd share.

The biennium before last JWH Cup went to Kappa Tau at Southeastern Louisiana University. Small school but AOII rules the roost. My little brother went there and would tell everyone that his sisters (My older sister and I were at another school) were AOIIs. He said that AOIIs were the pretty girls and everyone was always impressed that he had AOII sisters! Ha! I always thought that was funny!!
