Student Organizations

Eta Sigma Delta (ESD) International Hospitality Honor Society

ESD chapters provide professional, organizational and educational benefits that affect individual students, the hospitality program and the institution. In 1978, a group of students from the University of New Hampshire's Whittemore School of Business and Economics, identified a need to recognize hospitality and tourism students for outstanding academic achievement, meritorious service and demonstrated professionalism. At that time, honor societies existed for other disciplines, but not for the field of study serving one of the world's largest industries. Since 1978, 90+ chapters have been established on various campuses.

The membership to this society is by invitation only. To be eligible, students must meet the following criteria: either are in the top 20% of the class or maintain either a 3.0 GPA after completing 50 percent of credits required for graduation. Most importantly, students must agree to uphold the values of excellence, leadership, creativity, service, and ethics. Faculty advisor is Dr. Dae-Young Kim (kimdae@missouri.edu).
