DSU Students Recognized by Regents
Student organizations from Dakota State University were recognized this week for their outstanding academic, community, and organizational work by the South Dakota Board of Regents.
DSU student organizations honored with special recognition by the regents were:
- Award for Academic Excellence – Phi Beta Lambda brings business and education together in a positive working relationship through leadership and career development programs. PBL students attend educational workshops and leadership conferences, learn from motivational speakers, and participate in competitive events. While learning more about the business environment, members have the opportunity to build their resume, network with local business leaders, experience the rewards of volunteerism, and participate in special activities and business competitions.

- Community Service Award – The goal of Enactus is to apply students’ knowledge of financial literacy, success skills, market economics, ethics, and entrepreneurship to community needs. The local team collaborates with Interlakes Community Action Partnership to offer volunteer income tax assistance to low-income tax clients at no charge. After the local Jaycee chapter dissolved, Enactus stepped up to sponsor the Halloween haunted house, a community tradition dating back to 1920. The group also hosts a program on campus to teach students about credit and loan management issues.

- Award for Organizational Leadership – The Colleges Against Cancer organization raises cancer awareness by supporting American Cancer Society programs in college and university communities. Community service is stressed through campus events and fund-raising activities at Dakota State University such as Purple 101 Week, DSU Kickin’ Cancer, Hands of Hope, and many others.
