Why Delta Sigma Pi?
What Sets Delta Sigma Pi Apart?
What ultimately sets Delta Sigma Pi apart is our consistent structure of professional and personal development, and our lifelong commitment to supporting our members and maximizing their impact in the world. As a Deltasig, you’ll have access to events, conferences, resources, and connections to build your professional skills, leadership abilities, management potential, and character.
I transferred to BGSU in January of 2004. I didn't know anyone, and I wanted a way to meet new people. I heard a classroom presentation in my accounting class and decided to go to the information session. I pledged in Spring of 2005, and had no idea what was in store for me. Becoming a Deltasig allowed me to sharpen my professional skills, lead a committee, serve on the executive board, and make lifelong friends that I wouldn't know what to do without. Delta Sigma Pi changed my life, and I know my college experience was amazing because of it.

As some background, I pledged during Fall 2006 when I was beginning my Sophomore year at BG. I honestly joined to be able to meet people and other Greek life opportunities were not really “my cup of tea”. I loved that it was co-ed and something that would actually help you in the “real” world of business. I was extremely fortunate to meet so many people when I did. My husband and I pledged together (how we met) so this experience for me was much more than a college experience.
Two, more major, roles I had in the fraternity was SVP and I was Pledge Mama myself. These roles were so much fun and allowed me to be a stronger person individually. They really taught me how to lead people and be a representative of an organization which is what I am doing everyday in my current career with the J.M. Smucker Company.
I graduated with a BS in Economics and I am currently handling our company’s entire Forecast for the next two years on our Dunkin Donut’s Milestone, Folgers Gourmet Select, Cross & Blackwell, Dickinson’s and Nonesuch brands and I love my job and what I am doing. I never in a lifetime thought I would work for a Fortune 500 company and I have now been here since I graduated in May 2009. The other, smaller things, you learn in the fraternity would never have been exposed to me outside of that world and I am grateful for that. These smaller things helped me to get where I am today.

When I was a student at BG, Delta Sigma Pi gave me the real-world experience that the classroom couldn’t give me and really prepared me for a career – not just a job. That’s what I was looking for when I joined. But being a part of DSP didn’t just teach me how to write a good cover letter. I did learn how to write a mean cover letter, but I also developed leadership skills needed to advance in my career and being a part of DSP allowed me to be part of a community. Pledging DSP was the best decision I made in college!
