Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I join a professional business fraternity such as Delta Sigma Pi?
Delta Sigma Pi allows students to become the best professional one can be while also fostering values in service, scholarship, and social interaction. Since we are a professional business fraternity, we pride ourselves on our events and opportunities that allow our brothers to learn more about the commercial world, develop skills that aren't taught in class, and prepare for whatever future they desire. We incorporate our many connections with both local and international businesses to help and educate our brothers, complete hundreds of hours of service each year, and build friendships that will last a lifetime.
What distinguishes Delta Sigma Pi from other business or professional fraternities?
The Epsilon Lambda Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi, though fairly new to RIT's campus, has had many great accomplishments and endeavors! We are constantly seeking opportunities to better ourselves professionally and personally. Since the chapter was re-actived in 2012, we have been working hard to gain a great sense of recognition in the Rochester area, as well as nationally, with our unique events and innovative ideas! Delta Sigma Pi is unique because it stresses the importance of developing strong business skills to build strong well-rounded individuals who have great integrity while also being well-rounded. While we strive to be professional in every sense, you will find that our brothers are down to earth and approchable as well. We are humble, friendly individuals that are passionate about networking, personal growth, and helping others along the way.
What is recruitment?
Recruitment is a time when Delta Sigma Pi hosts a series of informational, professional, service, and social events on and around campus. It is the best opportunity for the individuals interested in joining our brotherhood to meet us and see what we are all about! You can find our schedule of events for this semester on the Recruitment page!
Is there a "type of person" the fraternity is looking for?
Nope. We are looking for individuals who have exhibited the following traits: ambition, creativity, professionalism, respect, humility, and a strong desire to improve themselves professionally and personally.
What is pledging?
Pledging is an intensive process that develops important professional skills, teaches potential members about the traditions and values of Delta Sigma Pi and transitions you into becoming a brother.
How difficult is pledging Delta Sigma Pi?
The pledging process is rigorous, but if you ask any brother in the fraternity, they will tell you that it is definitely manageable and well worth it - we all did it too!
