Kappa Sigma is an international fraternity with over 316 active chapters and colonies in North America.
There have been over 290,000 initiates. It is currently the leader of all American Fraternities in terms of pledges and new initiates per year, service hours, and philanthropic donations. The Fraternity also has the lowest national dues 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, leadership, scholarship, 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 2.5 GPA or higher, and volunteer for at least thirty five hours every year.
