Biographical Sketch:
The roots of the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity at Michigan State University reach back to 1905 with the establishment of the Aurorian Literary Society, a local collegiate society at Michigan Agricultural College. In 1922, the Aurorians applied to Delta Sigma Phi, a national fraternity, for a local chapter. The Alpha Pi Chapter of the Delta Sigma Phi was formally established at the Michigan Agricultural College in 1923. When organized, the purpose of the literary society was to extend "the opportunity for literacy training and social privileges to more of the students..." while the goal of the fraternity has evolved to providing "service to the community and the school."
