Professional Fraternities

Professional and service fraternities bring members together and build tight-knit communities through dedication to a specific initiative or profession. Shepherd is home to three professional & service fraternities: Alpha Phi Omega (co-ed service), Delta Sigma Pi (co-ed business), and Sigma Alpha Iota (music, for women). These fraternities are a great way to cultivate your professional interests and explore how these interests can impact the world.
