More than 100 years ago, an anonymous Sigma Chi defined fraternity as “an obligation, a necessity, an introduction, a requirement, a passport, a lesson, an influence, an opportunity, an investment, a peacemaker and a pleasure.”
Take a few moments to scratch the surface of our history by learning about the seven Founders. Read about the early years of the Fraternity and the struggles that the earliest members encountered. Our story spans decades of world history: From the Founders' experiences in the Civil War, to Sigs who have banded together in the US and Canadian armed forces today.
With chapters throughout North America and alumni who have traveled and lived all over the globe, Sigma Chi has made journeys over space as well as time, ranging from the founding site in Old Miami to alumni chapter meetings on the beaches of Hawaii.
