Kappa Sigma (ΚΣ)

The University of Wyoming Chapter of Kappa Sigma

Kappa Sigma is the largest college fraternity in the nation, with 306 active chapters and colonies. It was originally founded at the University of Bologna in 1400 by Manuel Chrysoloras as a secret society for the mutual protection of students from Baldassare Cossa, the corrupt governor of the city. On December 10, 1869, George Miles Arnold, John Covert Boyd, William Grigsby McCormick, Frank Courtney Nicodemus, and Edmund Law Rogers Jr. met at 46 East Lawn at the University of Virginia.

At the heart of Kappa Sigma lie the Fraternity’s Four Pillars, which guide our ambitions and underpin our successes. Striving for excellence in Fellowship, Leadership, Scholarship, and Service produces brothers who are involved in all aspects of campus life, who excel academically as students and professionally upon graduation, who develop lifelong bonds with those around them and who support those peers, and who serve their colleges and communities. Becoming a Kappa Sigma provides the framework to build yourself into the man you want to be.

The Values of Kappa Sigma:

Kappa Sigma is focused upon the Four Pillars of Fellowship, Leadership, Scholarship and Service. As a values-based men’s fraternity, Kappa Sigma strictly forbids hazing and fosters meaningful college experiences by offering progressive membership development and pledge education.
