Alpha Kappa Psi is open to accepting all majors, while Delta Sigma Pi only accepts business majors. So that means that our events and members are business focused to enhance your experience in the business world.

There are numerous reasons to join Delta Sigma Pi. From Professional events such as resume workshops and professor panels to company tours and networking events. Delta Sigma Pi excels in bringing you closer to your dream job. Our Community Service committee led by the Vice President of Community Activities puts together events that align with the business world very closely. We also proud ourselves in giving back to the community around us. Our Fundraising committee led by the Vice President of Fundraising puts together events that are fun and resourceful to the chapter. Lastly, the social aspect of the fraternity. We pride ourselves on being a brotherhood. That includes holding social events to deepen our bond and get to know one another in a more informal manner. Due to having brothers in multiple business majors, we get the opportunity of having them as resources during college and even after. Alumni often come back and give helpful advice along with internship opportunities to current brothers interested in their particular fields. These kind of business resources are just part of what Delta Sigma Pi has to offer to many business students.
