The gentlemen of Delta Sigma Phi can truly say that they never walk alone, and neither will you. Delta Sigma Phi strives to be different from the average fraternity stereotype, and it offers a truly unique and fulfilling Greek experience that one cannot find at any other college campus.
Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity's roots date back to December 10, 1899 at the College of the City of New York (CCNY). A group of students bonded after participating in a pre-admissions program, and they wanted some way to continue their friendship during their college careers. These men aspired to join a fraternity, hoping to cement their friendships in a bond of brotherhood that would last a lifetime. However, they lived in a time steeped in intolerance and discrimination. From a background of different races cultures, and religions, our Founding Fathers realized there was no fraternity that was of open mind to accept men to their brotherhood from such a diverse group. Determined to share in the special bond of fraternal brotherhood and displeased with the status quo that would not welcome them as one, they stood undeterred. They stood together in the face of adversity and challenged the status quo. They set out to create their own new fraternity with a set of values and ideals rooted in the concept of the universal brotherhood of man. They banded together with purpose around this powerful message of unity, openness and diversity and formed the first chapter of Delta Sigma Phi - the first fraternity of its kind.
After founding a second chapter at Columbia College, Delta Sigma Phi incorporated in December of 1902. During that time, Delta Sigma Phi wrote into law the requirement of open membership to all men of quality, regardless of religion, race or creed.
We are proud to say we have had the highest cumulative grade point average among fraternity men for 45 consecutive semesters. The best part of this is that our generous alumni offer a scholarship program specifically for members of Delta Sigma Phi - Beta Mu. The table to the right shows how much each individual member can earn per semester.
