Welcome to DSP's Spring 2013 Rush Week
On behalf of the international fraternity of Delta Sigma Pi, I would like to welcome you to the Spring 2013 recruitment season. Since 1907, the Alpha Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi has delivered strong individuals that have gone to achieve many great things in the professional world. Being a brother of Delta Sigma Pi equips you with the necessary tools to grow professionally and personally through a series of internal mentorships, a strong international network of alumni, and consistent exposure to leading corporations. This spring, we are pulling out all the stops to bring you an action-packed, fully-charged rush week.
Our spring rush week allows you the opportunity to meet the Brothers - your peers who share the same goals as you, chat with alumni and professionals in a comfortable setting and get a small taste of what it is like to be a part of an exceptional professional fraternity. Ultimately, my goal is for you to witness how this brotherhood distinguishes itself from other student organizations on campus. Before checking out our events, let me tell you a few things you can gain from Delta Sigma Pi:
Professional Excellence– First and foremost, we are a professional fraternity and your professional development is our top priority. We are able to help you enhance your career goals through our comprehensive series of professional events which will help illuminate your career path. A couple of noteworthy events we have held include dress workshops hosted by Brooks Brothers, networking seminars with Credit Suisse executives, corporate tours of prestigious financial and accounting firms and an illustrious senior speaker. To get a sense of where our brothers end up after graduation, take a look to see where we have gone in our Careers & Internships.
Solid Faculty and Alumni Network– Our current faculty initiates serve as an outstanding resource for brothers: Ernest Kurnow (Professor Emeritus of Business Accounting), Richard Hendler (Clinical Associate Professor of Law in Business), Christine Petrovits (Assistant Professor of Accounting), Irving Schenkler (Director of Management Communication), and Aaron Tenenbein (Director of Actuarial Science). Well past graduation, our alumni remain an integral part of our day-to-day. Many of our alumni have become top performers in respected firms of the likes of, KPMG, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, American Express, Credit Suisse, and more. See where our Alumni work.
Commitment to Service– As a brotherhood, we strongly encourage giving back to the community. A constant initiative of the fraternity is to enhance our philanthropic efforts in creative and innovative ways that make it enjoyable for everyone. Collectively, we strongly participate in the American Cancer Society's "Relay for Life" and "New York Cares Day" in addition to cross-partnering with corporate firms on various community service projects. This upcoming year, we are prioritizing Stern's "Do-One-Thing Initiative" where we are partnering with corporations to donate professional attire. If you want to get involved, learn more at Community Service.
New opportunities– Delta Sigma Pi is a great base to flex your leadership potential. From the get-go, our new brothers may find themselves with the opportunity to take on a leadership position within the fraternity. This is the optimal way to help shape your voice and hone your strengths. In a relatively short amount of time, we have created two strong initiatives: a student-run investment fund and the Alpha Magazine, the premier undergraduate business publication on campus. We are constantly brainstorming new projects, and it is empowering to know that regardless of what stage you are at in your undergraduate career, you can still make a big difference.
I joined Delta Sigma Pi my freshman year because I believed being a part of a professional fraternity would help me land that interview, but what I gained in the short two years transcends any professional goal - I gained a new perspective. After becoming a brother I began to think in a pluralistic fashion, which has helped me be a better friend and colleague. College is all about maximizing opportunities that push you out of your comfort zone to see what you are made of. Delta Sigma Pi was that opportunity for me.
I chose to be a part of Delta Sigma Pi, and you should too.
