    Initiated in my First Year Fall | Economics | Interested in Product Marketing

    With my first year of college being completely online, it felt like all the advice I got coming into freshman year didn’t apply anymore. I came in directionless in both who I am, and the person that I wanted to become. However, after joining DSP in the fall of my first year, I finally found a community that supported me through thick and thin, no matter the circumstances. The brothers were more than willing to go out of their way to help provide resources and advice on anything that I had questions about. I’ve not only gained so much insight on the professional world and my personal aspirations, but I’ve also gained a group of people I can call my life-long friends. Joining DSP was probably the most impactful and life-changing decision I’ve made in my college career so far!

    Initiated in my First Year Fall | Business Administration | Interested in Marketing, Strategy and Consulting

    Before coming to UCI, I felt a little bit lost because I came in not knowing anybody and also wasn't quite sure what I was looking for out of college or a career post-graduation. DSP has absolutely been my family away from home and has been the best well-rounded community I could've ever asked for in college. The people I've met in DSP are not only some of my closest friends but people that I've been able to rely on all throughout college. I've also grown in huge ways not only professionally but also personally that I could have never even imagined before joining DSP. DSP has been a perfect environment for me to find mentorship, support, and community but also an environment that pushes me to achieve new heights and challenge myself to do things I never thought I could do. This community has immensely helped guide my direction in terms of professionalism and career but also has helped me navigate college as a whole!

    Initiated in my First Year Fall | Business Administration | Interested in Consulting, Esports/Gaming and Product Management

    As an out-of-state student, my decision to join the DSP (Delta Sigma Pi) fraternity was driven by my desire to be a part of a community of motivated and outstanding individuals. From the moment I joined, DSP has significantly enriched my college experience. It's more than just a fraternity; it's a family. Some of my fondest memories have been created during our adventures, like our unforgettable trip to Big Bear and the memorable Duffy Boating excursion. These experiences have forged lifelong friendships and provided me with a strong support system throughout my academic journey. Moreover, DSP has played a pivotal role in my career development. The fraternity's ethos of mutual encouragement and support has pushed me to constantly strive for excellence. The members are always willing to lend a helping hand or offer valuable advice when needed. Through DSP, I've not only developed essential leadership and teamwork skills, but also expanded my professional network, which has proved invaluable as I navigate my career path.

    Initiated in my Second Year Fall | Economics, Social Policy & Public Service | Interested in Marketing and Public Health

    Coming out of high school where I was involved in many business related organizations, I completed my first year at UCI knowing I was missing something. I wanted to be a part of a professional organization that promoted diverse thought and the importance of being yourself, but whether or not that organization existed was something I wasn’t sure about. It wasn’t until my second year that I properly sought into DSP and after meeting so many unique individuals with various aspirations, I knew it would fill the void I was seeking for. Looking back, I can whole-heartedly say that DSP has become an integral part of my college experience and one that has shaped me both professionally and personally. Most of all, I have established bonds with people within the chapter that I hope to carry on much beyond my time here at UCI.

FAQ's

Recruitment is a series of events over two weeks to allow prospective members the opportunity to learn more about Delta Sigma Pi. In turn, our collegiate brothers will be able to learn more about the interested candidates as well. Each event will highlight an aspect of our brotherhood and professionalism such as a game night, alumni panel and professionalism workshop. Interviews are held at the end of the two weeks and select prospective members are then given an invitation to pledge for the Fraternity.
We are the only business fraternity at UC Irvine to restrict membership to business school majors, which is instrumental to our career focus and tight-knit brotherhood. As the oldest business fraternity on campus, we have the largest alumni network in every industry for our brothers to connect with. We organize more professional development initiatives than any other campus organization, giving our brothers an advantage in competitive career opportunities. By emphasizing a balance between brotherhood and professionalism, our brothers find an unrivaled community of driven individuals who motivate each other to succeed. However, what truly makes Delta Sigma Pi unrivaled is our drive to make an impact on our communities and the world at large, which is something unique to each brother. Talk to our brothers to find out more about the impact they’ve made and what they hope to achieve.

After recruitment events and interviews, we extend invitations to select prospective members for our pledging program. Pledging is an intensive five week process designed to help our pledges grow professionally and personally. The time commitment for pledging can be compared to a part-time internship. Pledges learn and exercise team-building, public speaking, and leadership skills – all in the context of business projects and practices. In addition, pledges will learn about the Fraternity’s history and operational requirements through the planning and participation in projects and events. Pledges are paired with big brothers in the chapter for additional mentorship and professional growth. At the end of pledging, pledges are considered for initiation into the Fraternity. Although difficult, pledging is designed to build the highest caliber of brotherhood and professionalism.
If you have grown personally and professionally since your last recruitment process, you have an advantage over those students going through the recruitment process for the first time and are welcome to apply again.
There is no pre-set image of the ideal candidate as we recognize the different contributions that various individuals can make. However, we are still looking for highly motivated scholars that not only work well independently, but within a group as well. Potential, as well as present qualities, is a determining factor in the selection process. Some factors we take into consideration are professional aptitude, past successes, willingness to learn, passion, and social compatibility.
The number of invitations we extend varies widely depending on how many prospective members we believe are qualified. Recent pledge classes have ranged in size from as little as six or as many as thirteen.
