Kappa Sigma

Kappa Sigma Fraternity is an international organization with over 318 and growing active chapters in North America.

There has been over 290,000+ brothers initiated into Kappa Sigma Fraternity. It is currently the leader of all American Fraternities in terms of pledges and new initiates per year, service hours, and philanthropic donations. Kappa Sigma also has the lowest national dues out of any other fraternity and has the oldest continuous endowment fund which has donated $6.5 million to undergrads since the fund’s inception in 1919.

Kappa Sigma has a long and storied history, dating back to its original founding in 15th-century Bologna. In 1869, students at the University of Virginia founded the modern order on the principles of the historical society. These principles continue to define the lives of “Kappa Sigs” all over the world.

The four cornerstones of the fraternity are fellowship, leadershipscholarship, and service. Brothers of the Omicron-Phi chapter must learn and continue the history of the fraternity, lead on campus and in the community, maintain a 2.6 GPA or higher, and volunteer for at least thirty-five hours every year.
