Marci Butterfield is the faculty advisor for Beta Alpha Psi, she wrote this great post about an even larger honor that was recently bestowed on the club. Read Marci’s take here:
The University of Utah’s Beta Alpha Psi chapter has been awarded GOLD. They are one of only 15 chapters across the nation and internationally to be recognized. Beta Alpha Psi recognizes that many chapters often go above and beyond what is required to become a Superior Chapter. In an effort to reward these chapters, The KPMG Foundation sponsors the KPMG Gold Challenge Competition. The competition lets BAP students put their multimedia skills to use by creating a 5-minute video that explains and/or demonstrates why their chapter deserves the award or why a top student would want to become part of the BAP organization.
Last year’s President, Greg Thornton and our current VP of Technology, Nate Burgess led this amazing project. They interviewed Martha Eining, Melissa Kraft, and Marci Butterfield and asked why our chapter deserves to be Gold. There were also interviews with students, Maggie Cosgriff and Dianna Singh, who told about their experience with Beta Alpha Psi. They also showcased the many events that Beta Alpha Psi holds throughout the year that benefit our amazing students! Our chapter was awarded the Gold Challenge award at our annual meeting this past August in Atlanta, Georgia.
