Come summer, 113th street residents are going to have a new neighbor: Delta Sigma Phi. The fraternity was recently awarded an open brownstone, a step up from their current EC digs where space was reportedly tight. “Ultimately, we believed our chapter needed a centralized place to meet if our activities were to remain unhindered, and with the acquisition of a brownstone, we know this can be achieved,” said Josh Milstein (yes, Milstein), CC ’10 and DSP’s president.
But sources within Columbia’s Greek netherworld speculate that the acquisition of said brownstone was not without strife or scandal. Apparently, Alpha Chi Omega (also currently housed in EC) was first in line to move into the 113th st. location. But the fates (or the reportedly unpopular Victoria Lopez-Herrera, Assistant Director of Greek Life and Leadership Development) intervened and the gods of real estate smiled upon DSP instead. It also probably doesn’t hurt that Columbia’s Inter-Greek Council’s President and Chair of Judicial Affairs are both DeltaSigs. Just sayin’.
