INDIANAPOLIS, IN – June 7, 2016 – Nick Sweetman, a Delta Sigma Phi member and recent graduate of Arizona State University, has been recognized by the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) with their Undergraduate Award of Distinction.
The Undergraduate Award of Distinction “seeks to recognize fraternity men who have found in their experience an outlet for developing as both a leader and a better man. The recipients are those who embody the values of their fraternity and expect the same from those with whom they associate.” Nick is one of five honorees, from a Greek community of currently more than 750,000 undergraduate men.
Sweetman serves as one of two undergraduate representatives for Delta Sigma Phi’s Grand Council and chairs a national committee of undergraduate members. He has been extensively recognized for his leadership within Arizona State’s Greek community, where he has helped spearhead projects such as a mental health initiative, a project to help the local police provide toys to children in need during the holiday season, and most recently, a proposal for long-term Greek housing at Arizona State University. Nick graduated from Arizona State University in May. While at Arizona State, Nick also served as Interfraternity Council (IFC) president. He was jointly nominated for this award by both Delta Sigma Phi and ASU.
In his nomination for Sweetman, Patrick Jessee, Executive Director and CEO of Delta Sigma Phi, stated “Nick situates himself in every conversation with reasoned, humble leadership and poise. He comes exceptionally prepared with well-developed critical thoughts, and advocates his concerns with clarity and compassion and without hesitation. I see him engage his fellow undergraduates with open arms, a huge smile, and a genuine passion for understanding who they are, what they desire, and how we can support them. It truly astounds me how he’s able to put such energy and time into this role on top of his extensive academic schedule and other volunteer commitments.”
