I remember after finishing my first quarter I wanted something more from my DePaul experience and that I wanted to join some kind of greek life. That’s when I decided to rush Delta Sigma Pi, a co-ed professional business fraternity on campus. Many people think “fraternity” and think of a very social group of people that only have fun. People also think “professional/business” and may think boring.
Delta Sigma Pi is an organization that has helped me grow a lot, especially professionally. This fraternity has a large variety of things to offer business majors. We have the lowest dues on campus and students have the opportunity to rush in the Fall or Winter. We focus a lot on professional development, community service, and everyone’s favorite - brotherhood events. Below is just a snapshot of the types of events we have.
Professional Events: There are always a handful of professional events every quarter which can vary. But some that happen often include professional/alumni panels, how to dress workshops, resume workshops, guest speakers, and a yearly event that is a personalized internship/job fair for members of the fraternity.
Community Service Events: We are heavy on giving back. Some community service events we’ve done include visits to the Ronald McDonald House, Chicago Marathon, Junior Achievement, Anti-Cruelty Society and donations to local causes.
Brotherhood Events: Although we are a professional fraternity, we also know how to have fun. There are an endless amount of fun events we do such as going to Chicago Fire games, grill outs, game nights, bowling, and dinners just to name a few.
Freshman year was a lot of me trying to find out what kind of people I wanted to be surrounded by. I’m glad I found this organization because the people in it have been such a great influence on me and many of the people I have met in this organization are some of my best friends.
