    • Beta Alpha Psi students are already “good” students. They have strong GPAs, they contribute to their communities through service, and demonstrate a commitment to professional ideals and ethics. We want to encourage them to go the next level and strive to be “great.” An integral part of this encouragement is for students to hear life stories of other students who have been particularly inspirational.

  • Gold Challenge Competition [sponsored by KPMG]
    • 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.
