Beyond the skills that will prepare you for your career, you’ll also build friendships that will broaden your perspective and enrich your life for years to come. Unlike other college business groups, your affiliation with Delta Sigma Pi doesn’t end after graduation. We support our members throughout their lives as they seek to make a difference in their jobs, communities, and relationships.
  • What is recruitment like?
    • Our recruitment process is informal and is designed as a way for recruits to learn about all of the aspects of our brotherhood. Recruitment is supposed to be a way for you to get to know us as much as it is for us to get to know you. Just a reminder, it is not mandatory to attend all events, but we recommend that you attend as many as possible. At the end of the recruitment process, there is a professional interview, on Friday, September 14th, 2018. Every recruit that wishes to be considered for membership must go through the interview process on this day.
  • What is the required time commitment?
    • The pledging process is several weeks long. Successful pledges, now brothers, have treated pledging as an additional class to their schedule. If initiated, the time commitment is not as intensive; however, you do get out what you put into it.
    • During the pledging process, you must be free on Wednesdays from 8:30-10:00pm for pledge chapter. 
  • What is the professional interview like? How do I prepare for my final interview?
    • Know your resume and be able to talk about the different things listed on it. Be confident and be yourself! We want to get to know the real YOU! Attend our professional speaker recruitment event for extra practice!
  • I have interviewed in a previous semester but didn’t receive a bid. Can I go through recruitment again?
    • Yes! If you have previously interviewed with us, but you did not receive a bid, you can interview again. However, you cannot interview more than two times for membership into Delta Sigma Pi.
  • Can I be a member of a social/service/academic fraternity or sorority at the same time?
    • Yes! We have many brothers involved in social, service, and academic/honor Greek organizations! We encourage brothers to get involved with other organizations across campus and participate in things they are passionate about!
  • What if I can't make it to an event/miss an event?
    • Events are not mandatory, but it is in your best interest to attend as many as possible for you to get to know the brothers and for them to get to know you. However, you are required to interview with us on Friday, September 14th, 2018. 
  • What if I don’t have professional attire?
    • That's okay! Just wear the most professional-looking attire that you have or borrow from a friend or hallmate! However, you will need to invest in a business professional suit for the pledge process and for the semesters to come, if initiated.
