Initiation Tips

March 20, 2013

With pledging season in full-swing and initiation right around the corner, we want to provide with you some tips for the process and ceremony. We also suggest you view the Ritual memorization guide to ensure a ceremony all brothers can be proud of as Deltasigs!

For Ceremonies:

  • Reserve rooms of sufficient size
  • Provide sufficient lighting
  • Adequate advanced communication to all involved (including faculty, national officers, alumni)
  • Acquire necessary supplies (Regalia, jewelry and senior mementos)

Tips for Memorization

  • Start early
  • Be able to say in your own words
  • Start with small passages
  • Practice in front of brothers or mirror
  • If stuck, state concept in your own words
  • Well read is better than poorly memorized

Executing Ceremonies

  • Challenge all brothers attending
  • Have guides at doors
  • Eliminate outside viewing
  • Sound quality

–      Turn off cell phones

–      No microphones

  • No photocopying of Ritual
  • No photography of Initiation
