Delta Sigma Pi was founded as a fraternity for business majors in 1907 by four men who met as freshman at New York University’s School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance. Alexander Frank Makay, Alfred Moysello, Henry Albert Tienken, and Harold Valentine Jacobs didn’t know each other prior to matriculating, but became friends through their classes and shared train rides to and from school. Discussing the exclusivity of one organization dominant on campus at the time, the four decided to start a fraternity open to all business majors. The organization they founded became Delta Sigma Pi

This all leads to personal development and success-both in the business world and the civic realm. Delta Sigma Pi doesn’t just develop professionals; the Fraternity provides members with relationships, skills, and ideals necessary for them to make a significant impact wherever life leads. Delta Sigma Pi is a lifetime commitment that has a lifetime of opportunities.

Today, Pi Chapter is one of the largest Chapters in the Southeastern Region with a little over a hundred brothers and over 2,700 initiates. We have a diverse group of brothers from all over the world that bring various perspectives, experiences, and skill sets that they share with the rest of the Fraternity. Our brothers are leaders not only within our organization, but within the Terry School of Business, and here at the University of Georgia. You can find us in a variety of organizations across campus and in the city of Athens. We focus on building brotherhood, giving back to our community, and developing our members professionally in order to create well-rounded people prepared for the business world.
Our Chapter has many opportunities for members to better themselves, gain new skills, and get involved. Some of these opportunities present themselves as leadership positions. We have elections each semester in order to maximize the number of leadership positions we have for our members and to give everyone the opportunity to lead our Chapter and learn. We also have a number of committees such as fundraising, marketing, and professional development which help our brothers learn how to problem solve and work in teams.
