Why DSP?

Delta Sigma Pi offers an exceptional opportunity to be surrounded by ambitious individuals who encourage you to explore new possibilities in the world of business.

The unbreakable bonds of brotherhood have provided a platform to gain practical business experience, a vast professional network, and a peer support system. We expect our recruits to be brotherly, professional, committed to service, and sociable.

Brotherhood is extremely important to us, as it is what connects us and empowers our Fraternity as a whole. Commitment to the brotherhood includes going above and beyond to connect to brothers both as a friend and as a professional. Brothers should conduct themselves in professional manner and always show respect to those around them.

Brothers should be aware that they must actively take part in the Fraternity’s charitable efforts. Brothers have the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of organized community service oriented events that range from planting trees, to helping sheltered dogs find a home.

Lastly, brothers should be social. Delta Sigma Pi is about forming connections with brothers, forging new friendship, and creating new memories. Brothers should be willing to make new friends.
