BECOME A BROTHER

SPRING 2017 RECRUITMENT SCHEDULE

Overview

Recruitment

Recruitment is a three-week period in which the fraternity hosts events so you can get to know the fraternity and our brothers. You should try to come to as many events as possible during these three weeks in order to learn more about the fraternity, and to determine if Delta Sigma Pi is a good fit for you. We host a variety of events to try to show you not only what the benefits are while in college, but the benefits of being a brother long after you’ve left the University of Georgia.

The Pledging Process

If selected for membership, you will next become a pledge. The pledging process is a eight-week program in which pledges learn more about being a brother of Delta Sigma Pi. Throughout the program, you will be required to attend mandatory weekly meetings that include quizzes about the fraternity and presentations on various aspects of professionalism. You will also be required to participate in fundraising, community services, professional events, and social events in addition to the weekly meetings. There is ample opportunity to get to know the brothers outside of chapter in a more relaxed atmosphere as well. Becoming a pledge of Delta Sigma Pi is a big time commitment, similar to adding another class to your course load. That said, it is also one of the most rewarding, fun experiences you will have here at the University of Georgia.

Our chapter requires that you meet the following:

  • UGA business or pre-business student
  • Terry Majors Accepted
  • Have at least 12 course hours completed
  • A minimum of a 3.0 GPA
  • At least 3 semesters remaining at UGA (including this semester)
  • Attend an information session and 2 other recruitment events

You do not need to be in Terry at the time of your application, however you must be a business or pre-business student. Proof of your major must be submitted before your final interview which will take place either January 28 or January 29 depending on which date you sign up for. To prove your major, please provide a printout of your major and GPA screen from Degree Works. More information is included in the recruitment packet.

What Sets Delta Sigma Pi Apart?

As a Deltasig, you’ll have access to events, conferences, resources, and connections to build your professional skills, leadership abilities, management potential, and character.

Commitment to Diversity

Delta Sigma Pi’s commitment to diversity is reflected in all levels of the organization. From national leadership to individual chapters, our collegiate members and alumni come from all different regions, backgrounds, and walks of life, and we celebrate the different viewpoints and insights our co-ed professional fraternity offers.

Our Founders formed Delta Sigma Pi intending to create a brotherhood as diverse as the business world the Fraternity would represent. We welcome members who meet our professional standards regardless of race, ethnicity, creed, religion, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status. Each of our members is valued and respected for the unique contribution he or she makes to the organization.

Our legacy of diversity makes us better business leaders and more compassionate members of society—it’s one more reason we’re proud to be Deltasigs!
