DELTA SIGMA PI
Professional Business Fraternity
Kappa Tau Chapter | Clemson University
Our Chapter

Welcome!


Delta Sigma Pi is a professional business fraternity organized to foster the study of business in universities; to encourage scholarship, social activity and the association of students for their mutual advancement by research and practice; to promote closer affiliation between the commercial world and students of commerce, and to further a higher standard of commercial ethics and culture and the civic and commercial welfare of the community.


Our members strive to live up to the purpose of our Fraternity by representing the organization as leaders in our community, classrooms, and in the workforce. Kappa Tau is one of over 300 collegiate chapters in the nation and is a well-known chapter in our region for professional leadership and service. This semester we have over 90 active brothers who are continuously growing professionally to represent themselves and this organization well.


We are looking forward to the coming semester, and welcome all business majors to join us for our recruitment season beginning in September. If you are interested in becoming a member and learning more about what we do here at Clemson, feel free to contact me at president.dspkt@gmail.com.


Fraternally, 


Megan Quinan

President, 2019
