Delta Sigma Pi hosted an Animal Awareness Event on Sept. 10 outside the University Center in the Canopy Area in front of the library where students got to interact with the dogs. 

“Everyone in the fraternity feels like they are part of a family; we are all connected to each other,” Eryck Rodriguez, sophomore and Delta Sigma Pi vice president, said. “I joined Delta Sigma Pi my freshman year, and it is the best decision I have ever made.”

Delta Sigma Pi teamed up with Cassie’s Place for the animal awareness event. The fraternity participated in the event to show what community service means to all of the members.

“I plan on representing the fraternity and making sure more members join,” Cody Vasquez, senior and Delta Sigma Pi president, said. “Our main goal is to reach national recognition.”

During the event, students helped by giving donations of money or pet items.

Princess Fiel-Murphy, junior and Delta Sigma Pi merchandise chair, said she wants students to know that the fraternity is about learning how to be professional and making the College of Business proud of the fraternity’s outcomes. Fiel-Murphy designs T-shirts and graphics for the fraternity’s social media. She has also volunteered with Cassie’s Place since the nonprofit organization started in 2015 and has always been an advocate for animals.

Cassie’s Place rescues and rehabilitates animals who suffer dangerous accidents. The organization also promotes humane treatment of animals.

During the event, students were allowed to play with the pets and take photos.

Jessica Cross, freshman, said the event was a good way to get people interested in joining the fraternity.

Members of Delta Sigma Pi revealed the most rewarding part about being in the fraternity.

Vasquez said the best thing about being in Delta Sigma Pi is the members you meet and the connections they can make.

Sabra Sanderson, junior, said Delta Sigma Pi helps the members when it comes to stepping into the real world. Sanderson elaborated by saying that when it comes to applying, dressing and acting for a job, she knows everything because of the fraternity.

Many benefits are offered via membership in the fraternity, including career opportunities, networking opportunities and national fraternity events.

Delta Sigma Pi engages in community service, professional leadership development and social activities.

Delta Sigma Pi accepts students who major in business, agribusiness, criminal justice, security studies and any other business- related majors.

As part of recruitment, the fraternity will have multiple events throughout the month of September.
