We challenge ourselves and our brothers to make an impact in our community and the world. To rise to the moment and take action. To be the better man.
We are Delta Sig
From Delta Sigma Phi’s founding at the City College of New York in 1899 to the more than 120 chapters across the country today, Delta Sigma Phi and its members strive to be excellent in all they do. Brotherhood is a lifetime commitment to living our core values: Culture, Harmony, and Friendship. Together we work to not merely develop a strong fraternity based on these values, but to build better men and better leaders through our actions.
A brief history
Delta Sigma Phi was first chartered at The Ohio State University as Alpha Iota chapter on May 20, 1920. The chapter was inactive for more than a decade before returning to campus in January 2012, looking to redefine fraternity at Ohio State. In a span of only a few weeks, more than 40 men accepted the challenge to make an impact on campus and on the world.
With an initial group of active and involved men recruited by the national fraternity, we now work to establish our brotherhood and our position on campus. We chartered in August 2013 and continue to seek involved, atypical men looking to make a difference at Ohio State. See Recruitment for more information on how to join us as we build better men at Ohio State.
About our men
We are made up of committed men who strive to make an impact at Ohio State. Our men are committed to service, tallying over 1,500 hours of community service last year. Our men realize academics are important, with the fraternity ranking in the top five fraternities at Ohio State in Autumn 2012. And our men are involved, as we push our brothers to be involved in not just the fraternity, but also in many of the more than 1,000 student organizations at Ohio State.
Where we're headed
As a newly established chapter, we have already accomplished many things, but much more lies ahead. We continue to seek new men interested in joining our brotherhood to further establish our place on campus. We are working to find unique ways to contribute to Delta Sigma Phi's national philanthropy, the American Red Cross, from blood drives to fundraisers. And we are constantly working to develop our brotherhood, live by our core values, and, through these actions, fulfilling our mission of building better men.
Better Men. Better Lives.
