FAQ: Professional Fraternity Recruitment
What is recruitment?
Recruitment is a series of social, professional and community service events open to all students who have interest in joining our organization. Our events give recruits a chance to meet brothers, learn about our organization and improve personal and professional skills.
Who is eligible for recruitment?
Freshman, sophomores, and juniors may have the chance to join during the fall or spring semester. You may join Delta Sigma Pi if you are already a member of another social or professional (non-business) fraternity, sorority, or honor society. You may not simultaneously maintain membership in Delta Sigma Pi and Alpha Kappa Psi, Phi Gamma Nu, or Phi Chi Theta.
What is a bid?
After students complete the recruitment process by attending the minimum amount of events indicated by the Senior Vice President they are invited to Speed Interviews where each student has the opportunity for a personal interview with each current Brother. After this process, the Chapter deliberates on an individual basis and decides to extend a bid to the student.
What is a pledge?
A student can become a pledge once they receive a bid to join DSP and accept the bid in the Formal Pledging Ceremony. This ceremony and the acceptance of the bid is the start of the 6-week pledging process.
