The Panhellenic Council, which is the governing body of the college's sorority organizations, accepted the Order of Omega Award for Outstanding Chapter in the Southeast on behalf of the BSC Eta Xi chapter of Order of Omega. The organization, which is a Greek honor society comprised of juniors and seniors at the college, was recognized as the top chapter in the Southeast region in honor of academic excellence, community building and philanthropic endeavors of the organization. The chapter was noted for having 36 members which comprise 92 percent of the chapters at the college, with a cumulative 3.7 grade-point average.
The BSC Panhellenic Council was presented a Public Relations Award at the conference in recognition of its many new publications created and distributed to its Greek community as well as prospective students.
Birmingham-Southern was also presented the Gamma Sigma Alpha award for sorority grade-point average in the Southeast region for the third consecutive semester.
