Benefits of ESD

ESD Benefits

The professional benefits of Eta Sigma Delta include an opportunity for outstanding students to distinguish themselves in the eyes of educators, recruiters and industry executives in an increasingly competitive industry. In addition, ESD provides a networking system through their chapters that allows for interaction and the exchange of information among students. Often, ESD meets for special events or functions at annual trade shows. An Eta Sigma Delta column regularly appears in the ICHRIE monthly newsletter as well.

From an organizational standpoint, ESD can serve as a means of uniting outstanding students for campus activities, fundraisers and volunteer programs.

Educational benefits include the opportunity for ESD chapters to provide a stimulus for students to strive for academic excellence. By functioning as a resource for the hospitality program, ESD chapters can also provide tutoring or other forms of academic support for students needing assistance.
