A dedicated scholar who remained persistent in his pursuit of a long and fulfilling career in the finance banking industry, Peter Swan displayed his wits and ambition throughout his career in higher academia, starting with his undergraduate work at Hampden-Sydney. He graduated in four years with a Bachelor of Arts in Managerial Economics and Spanish and Cum Laude Honors; and within that time gained and maintained membership with many of the school’s honor societies and fraternities.
Omicron Delta Epsilon
Omicron Delta Epsilon is accredited by the Association of College Honor Societies as an International Economics Honor Society. Hampden-Sydney College honored the opening of this widely-recognized society back in 1971, and Peter Swan was a proud and active member of Omicron Delta Epsilon and helped promote his ambitions through involvement in this group.
Phi Sigma Iota
As the symbolic international foreign language honor society, Phi Sigma Iota members must meet certain requirements to be a part of this special society. Not only must they engage in a major or minor associated with a foreign language, but they must be and remain at the top 35% of their class. With a devotion to academics and his pursuit of a Spanish degree, Peter Swan was a natural member of this organization.
Phi Gamma Delta
Also known as FIJI, the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity was first founded at Jefferson College in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania in 1848. The fraternity has built lifelong relationships among its 170,000+ members. To this day Peter Swan credits much of his accomplishments to the experiences and camaraderie he gained through his FIJI brothers at Hampden-Sydney.
