Eta Sigma Delta Honor Society

Eta Sigma Delta Honor Society membersAbout ESD

Eta Sigma Delta (ESD) is an international hospitality honor society that recognizes the academic excellence of students pursuing a degree in hospitality, tourism and culinary arts. ESD members consist of students who have completed at least 50% of the credit hours for graduation, are of at least sophomore standing, have obtained a 3.0 or higher cumulative GPA, and are within the top 20 percentile of their class.


ESD focuses on a commitment to service. Student members work with groups including Ronald McDonald House Charities, Hawai'i Food Bank, and Na Ala Hele, organizing community service projects. ESD members pay a one time membership fee and host fundraisers to help subsidize costs of events for their members.
