What is a professional co-ed business fraternity?
Professional fraternities are organizations whose primary purpose is to promote development in a specific academic discipline, distinguishing them from social fraternities or sororities. Our fraternity in particular is focused on developing the skills that will set us up for a successful career in the business world. Co-ed fraternities are open to both men and women.
What sets Delta Sigma Pi apart from other business organizations on campus?
As the oldest professional business fraternity on campus, we have had the time to develop meaningful connections with other organizations on campus. We have built a strong relationship with the Economics department along with the Career Center where we are involved with the career fairs that take place throughout the school year. Since we are open to specifically business and tech related majors, we have been able to create a tight-knit community of like minded individuals which has been essential to providing brothers with both personal and professional development. With our chapter approaching almost one decade on campus, we have over 200 alumni brothers who are actively involved in providing resources for current members and supporting our endeavors.
