Why Delta Sigma Pi?
What Sets Delta Sigma Pi Apart?
What ultimately sets Delta Sigma Pi apart is our consistent structure of professional and personal development and our lifelong commitment to supporting our members and maximizing their impact in the world. As a Deltasig, you’ll have access to events, conferences, resources, and connections to build your professional skills, leadership abilities, management potential, and character.
Why Delta Sigma Pi?
The great advantage of joining Delta Sigma Pi, rather than other organizations or business fraternity within the College of Business, can be summed up in one word: Variety.
The Alpha Omicron Chapter offers all kinds of activities, including professional, community service, fundraising, and social events. To be a Brother of Delta Sigma Pi is to be a part of a very well-rounded organization. Delta Sigma Pi is open to business students of all majors, creating a diverse membership all focused on the same goals and objectives.
Make no mistake about it, Delta Sigma Pi is a fraternity, not a CLUB. Our Brotherhood is much more tightly-knit than the membership of other student organizations and fraternities. The history of our brotherhood dates back to our chapter’s founding on December 5, 1925. We have a saying, "Pledge for a Quarter, Brother for Life!" Not only is it a good slogan, but it literally holds true. Those who have experienced membership in Delta Sigma Pi have a unique connection to all other people across the world that have been initiated into the fraternity. Friends made in Delta Sigma Pi are friends for life. Our alumni are also actively involved in our chapter because of the brotherhood and professional knowledge gained during their tenure here at Ohio University. We would have to say that our alumni base is our greatest asset. They provide us with insight, professional networking contacts, and a means to understand what life is outside of college.
Over 30 members of the College of Business Faculty are members of Delta Sigma Pi, either as an undergrad or during their time here within the College of Business. The founder of the College of Business, Charles M. Copeland, was one of the first members of the Alpha Omicron Chapter. He foresaw the importance of professional organizations such as ours and the role we would play in shaping the future of its members as business leaders. Our faculty provides us the insight and knowledge we could not get anywhere else!
Brothers of Delta Sigma Pi have a clear advantage when networking and searching for jobs and internships. Deltasigs are scattered throughout the commercial world, and all of them know the outstanding qualities that every Brother brings to the table. This helps them to hire or recommend the hiring of their Brothers. Many internships in the area are passed from Brother to Brother because companies are aware of our members' excellent business savvy. We have Brothers working for Nationwide Insurance, National City Corporation, Bisys, Bank One, Ernst & Young, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Wachovia, Bank of America, etc.
The Alpha Omicron Chapter Community Service Program
The Alpha Omicron Chapter participates in a variety of organized community service events in an effort to give back to the community.
Joining the Alpha Omicron Chapter is an experience that you will never forget. The professionalism, the brotherhood, the history, and the lifelong friends are what set us apart from any other organization in the College of Business and on campus. Come check us out at our next Rush Event or contact any member of our executive board. We look forward to hearing from you!
