Recruitment occurs each semester during a one-week period where our chapter host a series of informational, professional, and social events. These events offer interested students an opportunity to check out what Delta Sigma Pi is all about (it's not just all about our professional side!) and meet its brothers while allowing the chapter it's only opportunity to select future members for the semester. How do you join? Joining Delta Sigma Pi involves a process of recruitment, pledging, and initiation. See below for more details.
There are four qualifications:
1) Completion of at least 12 college credits (AP/high school credits do not count) - effectively, you cannot be a first-semester Freshman.
2) Minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher.
3) Completion of a recruitment application submitted electronically with all required materials before the deadline.
4) Completion of a formal interview process administered by our chapter.
Unfortunately, if these four requirements are not met, we cannot consider the individual for a bid.
A professional fraternity such as Delta Sigma Pi offers an ideal balance of professionalism and social interaction. We are able to help you enhance your career goals through our comprehensive series of professional events which will help illuminate your career path. A couple of noteworthy events we have held include hosting illustrious speakers from PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Brookfield Asset Management, and many other companies. These events along with our alumni networking events help you develop a professional network that extends far beyond your college years. Although a business fraternity is a great way to develop professional skills, ultimately the strength of the fraternity lies in the brotherhood and the unique lifelong friendships that develop.
Absolutely not! Membership in a professional fraternity doesn't mean we cut out the fun! We're much more than a campus club - we host social events, formals, tailgates, intramural sports teams, retreats, etc. These are the experiences that make college memorable... along with developing lifelong friendships and nationwide contacts!
We only accept business-related majors into our Fraternity. This means all Rutgers Business School students, Economics majors, Environmental Economics majors, and Human Resources & Labor Relations majors. Business-related minors do not qualify. All of our resources are devoted to the business field because we want each of our members to have access to the highest quality of resources possible. This means that our interests are more closely tied and we have a greater focus to support each other in achieving our goals.
There is no one single type of person that Delta Sigma Pi looks for. On the contrary, the Fraternity values diversity and welcomes individuality. You will find that the brothers of Delta Sigma Pi range in all sorts of backgrounds, interests, and career aspirations. However, what strengthens the Fraternity is its unified interest in dedicated students who want to develop further within three areas: professional initiative, community service, and social interaction. We look for students who will maintain our professional image, as well as actively promote the goals of our Chapter and the Fraternity.
Brothers of Delta Sigma Pi are heavily involved in campus activities through participation in student organizations, student government, and employment activities. Our brothers have taken leadership positions in all of their endeavors. Although Delta Sigma Pi is proud of the accomplishments of its members, it also recognizes the values of mutual help and humility. Delta Sigma Pi is involved both on the Rutgers University campus and the surrounding community. Brothers engage in both community service and professional activities that benefit the entire campus community. Even though Deltasigs are highly motivated individuals, you'll find that brothers are quite down-to-earth and approachable.
Pledging is a process that develops important professional skills and teaches potential members about the traditions and values of Delta Sigma Pi. The program is designed to model the challenges of the corporate workplace. As such, the program imparts an invaluable experience to each person. All of our brothers can attest to the program's usefulness and practicality in our professional and personal lives.
Every new member is required to pay Central Office fees, which are subject to change through the National Fraternity. Current new member fees are $126. Chapter dues paid by current members are set at a base price of $265, subject to change based on member involvement.
The ideal member of a chapter of Delta Sigma Pi is one who subscribes to the objectives of the Fraternity. The brother is tolerant and sympathetic to the viewpoint of others. Such a member will attempt through college work, scholastic or otherwise, to bring credit to himself/herself and in turn to the Fraternity. If elected to chapter office, it should be considered a distinction and an obligation to serve members and the Fraternity. The brother should remember that “he profits most who serves best” and that returns from membership in a Fraternity are commensurate with the giving. The ideal member will therefore give to the Fraternity, and to the Leadership Foundation, to the best of his or her ability and expect the reciprocity which eventually comes to every giver.
Delta Sigma Pi has long taken a stand against hazing in any form.
Hazing activities, occurring as the result of any action of the Fraternity or its organizational members, are considered immature, juvenile practices which have no place in Delta Sigma Pi and will not be condoned under any circumstance.
In order that there will be no question as to what constitutes hazing, it is generally defined as follows: “Any action taken or situation created, either intentionally or unintentionally, on or off the college campus, to produce physical or mental discomfort, embarrassment, or ridicule; or possibly cause physical harm or injury. Such activities and situations include paddling in any form; creating of excessive fatigue; physical and psychological shock; treasure hunts, scavenger hunts, or road trips; kidnapping of pledges by members or kidnapping of members by pledges; consumption of food, beverage, or any other substance except in the course of regular meals; wearing apparel at any time or at any place which is conspicuous or not in good taste; engaging in public stunts, tricks, games, or horseplay; morally degrading games or humiliating activities; any activity on the part of the pledges or members which might possibly violate any local, state, or federal law, including Fraternity law; late work sessions which interfere with scholastic activities; and any other activities which are not consistent with Fraternity law, Ritual, or policy, or the regulations and policies of the state or educational institution.”
The Fraternity will take reasonable and good faith measures to assure that our organizational members and our guests abide by law and policy and that our actions reflect in a positive way on ourselves and our Fraternity. As stated earlier, none of these actions can provide an adequate substitute for personal responsibility for risk on the part of those who opt to consume or to provide alcoholic beverages.
The possession, use, and/or consumption of alcoholic beverages during any Fraternity event whether local, regional, provincial, national, or international in scope, or in any situation sponsored or endorsed by any chapter or by the Fraternity, must be in compliance with any and all applicable laws of the state, province, county, city, college, and university.
