Our History

Delta Sigma Pi is a co-ed professional business fraternity organized to foster the study of business in universities and was founded on November 7, 1907, at New York University by Harold Valentine Jacobs, Alexander Frank Makay, Alfred Moysello, and Henry Albert Tienken. 


Zeta Upsilon

 The Zeta Upsilon chapter of Delta Sigma Pi was founded on November 19th, 1966 at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Since its founding, over 1,100 undergraduate students and College of Pamplin faculty members have been initiated into our chapter. In 1975, Delta Sigma Pi officially became the nation's first co-ed business fraternity. Today, there are 305 collegiate chapters and over 295,000 initiates into the fraternity.

By the Numbers: Zeta Upsilon Statistics


As the oldest business fraternity at Virginia Tech, the Zeta Upsilon Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi has been fostering professionalism and lifelong opportunities since 1966. We exclusively welcome business school majors, a choice that underpins our exceptional career achievements and enduring brotherhood through shared interests, ambitions, and classes. Decades later, our chapter stands as Virginia Tech's leading business fraternity, distinguished by our professional and academic accomplishments and tight-knit bonds.

Structure Upon Four Pillars



Delta Sigma Pi offers unparalleled professional development and career advantage. Our chapter has supported generations of skilled professionals through industry education, collaborative workshops, and company and networking events. 

What sets our chapter apart? Our members! As a co-ed business fraternity, we embrace and celebrate the richness of our members' varied backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. We are committed to fostering an inclusive environment where every individual feels valued, respected, and empowered to thrive.

Community Service

Giving back to the local community and national causes is our identity's core. We believe "for every credit, there is a debit." In 2024, our chapter held weekly after-school volunteering at the Blacksburg Middle School. For years now, we have collected pop tabs to support the Ronald McDonald House, our philanthropy.


Behind each DeltaSig, there is the utmost desire to succeed academically. Our chapter is proud to offer the ZY Scholarship to exemplary brothers. We are committed to assisting our brothers with scholarships, award opportunities, and academic resources.
