Letter From The President

My name is Ross J. Sylvestri, and I am proud to serve as the President of the Upsilon Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. I am a junior in the College of Business studying accounting and looking forward to becoming a master's student next year. I pledged Delta Sigma Pi in spring 2016, and in the short time that I have been a brother, I have been able to grow immensely. Delta Sigma Pi is far more than a professional organization; it is a community which fosters the growth of young professionals soon to enter the business world.

Our chapter’s strength is a product of our brothers' commitment. With over one-hundred brothers in our chapter, we demonstrate a collection of diversely experienced individuals who constantly look to help one another. Our fraternity has a national network of over 265,000 members between the active brothers and professionals currently in the workforce. Active members of Delta Sigma Pi at the University of Illinois have many stories of meeting brothers from different chapters in the workplace, in international travels, and more! The Delta Sigma Pi network has an incredible array of professionals, all of whom look forward to meeting new brothers.

Delta Sigma Pi is America's foremost business fraternity for men and women pursuing careers in business. The Upsilon chapter dedicates itself to brotherhood, community service, and professional development. Our brotherhood and the close bond all of our brothers have with each other is what differentiates Delta Sigma Pi. I encourage you to talk to the brothers about this brotherhood during the recruitment process. Every brother has a different experience but has a story or a memory of why Delta Sigma Pi has been instrumental in shaping their collegiate career. Over the past few years the fraternity has headed the Tree of Hope campaign to benefit Developmental Services Center, participated in the Special Olympics Polar Plunge, lead a Suicide Awareness walk, facilitated Kickin’ It With Corporate, and engaged in many more service outings!

Delta Sigma Pi is a professional business fraternity built to foster the study of business in universities. We focus on furthering our brothers professionally and also staying connected with the business world. Our relationship with the College of Business at the University of Illinois is another focus for our fraternity as a whole. The involvement of faculty in our chapter gives our brothers an opportunity to learn, grow, and enhance their involvement with the College of Business.

Pledging Delta Sigma Pi has altered my college experience for the better. Delta Sigma Pi has empowered me to identify and achieve my personal and professional goals. I hope for you to learn just how valuable this fraternity is on your own, and I invite you to rush Delta Sigma Pi this semester. To learn more about our chapter, please join us at our Information Night on Thursday, January 19th at 6:00PM in the Lincoln Hall Theatre.
