Delta Sigma Pi is a professional fraternity organized to foster the study of business in universities; to encourage scholarship, social activity and the association of students for their mutual advancement by research and practice; to promote closer affiliation between the commercial world and students of commerce, and to further a higher standard of commercial ethics and culture and the civic and commercial welfare of the community.
From the beginning, Delta Sigma Pi's commitment to broad membership, scholarship, and service set it apart. Inspired by its values and mission, business students joined Delta Sigma Pi in large numbers and began to build the Fraternity's reputation for excellence and impact—both in the business world and the civic realm.
November 7, 1907 at New York University School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance.
Over 260,000 initiates and growing; approximately 12,000 current collegiate members.

Harold Valentine Jacobs

Alexander Frank Makay
Delta Sigma Pi Founder 1888-1951
Alexander Frank Makay was born in New York City on May 21, 1888 and attended public schools there. In 1930, his last name was legally changed to Mackay. Makay graduated from New York University and continued a life-long association with NYU as an alumnus. As an undergraduate, he was a football and track star and later served on the athletic council. Makay deserves much of the credit for NYU’s days of gridiron greatness, having coaxed Chick Meehan to leave Syracuse and become head coach at NYU where he put together football teams that were the best in the East.
