We extend our sincere concern and support to our members, friends, colleagues, university partners and communities who have been impacted by the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) health emergency. In these unprecedented times we want Deltasigs to focus on their health, safety, academics and family, limiting Fraternity stresses to a minimum.

The Board of Directors and Central Office staff are monitoring the situation closely and communicating any decisions as they become available. As each chapter accommodates and adapts to this "new normal", we would like to provide additional guidance on chapter and pledging operations. Please review the Frequently Asked Questions below. For other questions or more information, please contact hub@dsp.org
