a message from
our senior vice president
Hello! My name is Kate Lubbe and I am so excited to serve as Senior Vice President for Fall 2023. When I joined Delta Sigma Pi my freshman year, I became part of the most supportive, inclusive, and positive group of people I had ever met. Now as a senior, I am very blessed to give back to the organization that has given me so much. I have grown both personally and professionally because of the endless opportunities DSP has provided. I have gone on weeklong trips, pulled all-nighters in the BIF, and received internships with the help of my brothers, whom I call my best friends.
During our recruitment process, I hope to share with you some of the experiences that have made me call Delta Sigma Pi home. Our brothers are so excited to meet all of you! Our fraternity is built on three pillars: Professionalism, Philanthropy, and Brotherhood. I hope during our rush process you can see how our brothers embody these values everyday. I am looking forward to meeting talented Gies students who are eager to join this organization like I was 3 years ago.

"I rushed DSP as a way to enhance my college experience and meet new people. I wanted to find ways to excel academically as well as socially and I knew DSP was the perfect way to do that. DSP has left me with the tools to excel as a student and person, and has also given me lasting friendships and experiences that I could not receive anywhere else. I am so grateful I have been able to immerse myself into this organization and be apart of something that is meaningful and purposeful. DSP has left a lasting impact on my future and I cannot be more thankful for all this community has given me! "
What does DSP look for in applicants?We look for Gies College of Business students who are dedicated, driven, and enthusiastic about learning from others!
How can I prepare for the rush process?Attending Information Night is a great way to familiarize yourself with DSP and the rush process. The most important thing to remember is to be yourself throughout the entire rush process! Our members are so excited to meet you and learn about what makes you unique, so stay true to yourself and be confident in your knowledge and experiences.
Can I rush again if I have previously rushed and did not receive a bid from DSP?Yes! Many of our current members rushed more than once before receiving a bid to DSP.
What should I wear to each event?For events with a smart casual dress code, clothing should overall appear neat, polished, and appropriate. For events with a business casual dress code, examples of clothing include dress pants, khakis, or a knee-length or longer skirt, paired with a polo, dress shirt, or blouse. For events with a business professional dress code, suits or blazers with matching dress pants or skirt, along with close-toed shoes, should be worn. Feel free to check out our past Instagram posts (@illinois_dsp) to see examples of our members adhering to these dress codes!
How can I stay in touch with DSP throughout the rush process?Follow our chapter's Instagram (@illinois_dsp) for tips, reminders, and updated information during the rush process!
How can I prepare for the rush interviews?Practice behavioral interview questions and reflect on stories to tell that will answer the question. The “STAR method” answers interview questions by explaining the situation, task, action, and results. Think about what experiences you want DSP to know about you and try to have a couple experiences prepared so you can diversify your answers. Know what makes you unique and what you can contribute to DSP.
What can I do before the rush process to help prepare me for rush?Get involved within the school and community to have stories for answering questions. Also feel free to reach out to any current member to schedule a coffee chat to learn more about the rush process.
Can I use stories from high school to answer the interview questions?For freshmen, the only experience they have is from high school, so it is ok to use those examples to answer the questions. Once you get to college, start getting involved so you can use your most recent experience to answer the questions. Sophomores should share stories primarily from college.
Can I reach out to a current member to learn more?Of course you can reach out to a current member to learn more about DSP! You can find every member’s email on the DSP Who We Are page on the website and email any of us to schedule a coffee chat.
Do I need to bring a copy of or submit my resume for the rush process?Nope you do not need to bring a physical copy of your resume for any of the rush process. But be sure to know what’s on your resume so you can share your experiences.
