How to Join: The Basics


Sigma Delta Alpha is an organization for motivated college men who aspire to make a positive impact in their communities and who demonstrate a strong commitment to our purposes. We take absolute pride in wearing our fraternity letters and in what they represent, and we do everything we can to ensure potential new members are aware of the responsibilities of brotherhood.

  • Learn about our fraternity's history, traditions, constitution, bylaws, and values
  • Get to know the brothers of Sigma Delta Alpha
  • Develop teamwork, leadership, and accountability skills within their pledge class
  • Participate in community service events
  • Establish relationships with campus and community leaders, as well as members of other Greek-letter organizations
