Brotherhood Activities:
We take pride in our chapter, and we promote the highest of manhood spiritually, mentally, and socially. We feel we have a wonderful and welcoming place to call our home. "Delta Sigma Phi is a place where members develop character and live by a set of time honored traditions." One way we develop character is through our brotherhood events. Some of which are Pumpkin Carving, Hockey Trip to Spokane, and retreats where we hang out and build our bonds of brotherhood.

Academic/Scholarship Activities:
We strive for academic excellence, Our goal is to meet or surpass the campus all men's average. We have a great study program within the chapter which is used to promote learning and the importance of striving to do our best. "College began with a choice. You chose to push yourself to achieve higher goals and strengthen your knowledge of the world." Much of our program involves a schedule of study tables. We also use incentives to encourage people to study and do well, such as, preferences for room selection and kitchen schedule given based on GPA. Our chapter also awards an annual scholarship based on academics.

Philanthropic/Community Service Projects:
Our biggest philanthropy is our Bike to Boise. Bike to Boise, a tandem bike ride from Moscow to Boise, raises money for cancer research. We received an award for our accomplishments in Bike to Boise. "Delta Sigma Phi makes men into campus leaders and community partners." We also participate in the sorority philanthropies.

Social/Campus Activities:
We organize and hold several annual social events such as the Fall Cruise, Pledge Dance, Carnation Formal, the Sailor's Ball, and Founder's Day Date Dinner. Many of our members are also involved in campus intramurals, Flag Football, Ultimate Frisbee (2001 Campus Champions), Tennis (2nd in 2001), Softball, and many more!
