Public Profile

About This Organization

Abbreviation(s):
Kappa Sig
Purpose:
The Kappa Sigma Fraternity can trace its roots back to a secret society of students at the University of Bologna formed in the year 1400 for mutual protection of its members. The group was initially brought together by Manuel Chrysaloras, a Greek scholar that taught at the University, in response to physical attack, robbery and harassment of the University's patrons. It was this group that inspired the Ritual and beliefs of modern day Kappa Sigma.

In 1980 a group of Texas A&M Students, our Founding Fathers, accepted Jackson's challenge by introducing the principles and traditions of Kappa Sigma to Texas A&M University. Kappa Sigma was one of the earliest Fraternities established at Texas A&M.

After two years of diligently committing themselves to the Order, our founding members recruited a sufficient number of model students that shared the ideals of our Fraternity, and were granted an official Charter. As a result of their dedication, the Mu-Gamma Chapter of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity was born on May 8, 1982.

Nearly 30 years later, Mu Gamma continues to have a strong presence at Texas A&M. Our mission is no secret--we aspire to create better men by striving for excellence in all that we pursue through our pillars of Fellowship, Leadership, Scholarship, and Service. Today, Kappa Sigma comprises over 200 chapters and colonies in both the United States and Canada, with over 200,000 men. Kappa Sigma is the sixth largest fraternity and has approximately 150,000 brothers in North America. The list of initiates is not only long, but also distinguished. Notable alumni are present in every conceivable profession and are making great impressions on the American landscape.
