It’s ultimately a sisterhood that should never be discouraged. Delta sigma theta is founded on scholarship, sisterhood, and community service. The number one rule to surviving becoming a Delta Sigma Theta is to be discrete as possible. Showing discretion is keeping your business to yourself and not having anyone know your every move. No one should even know that you are thinking about pledging. When joining a sorority, it is made very clear that whichever sorority you are trying to pledge that there will be no hazing allowed. It depends on the school and chapter you are associated in whether they will make you participate in hazing. Hazing is humiliating and sometimes dangerous initiation rituals, which are usually performed on college students seeking to be in a fraternity or sorority. If you really are passionate about being a part of a DST, you will get through it! Delta Sigma Theta traditions include: secrets, passwords, signs and grips are never written but are transmitted by word of mouth from one Delta to another. Membership in Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is a lifetime commitment. Therefore, every soror is due recognition and courtesy in any chapter, regardless of chapter membership.

In less than three months, I’m leaving for New York City” (Walls 238).
