Sigma Chi is one of the oldest and largest Greek-letter social fraternities in North America, with more than 240 active chapters in the US and Canada. Sigma Chi was founded in 1855 based on the high ideals of friendship, justice and learning and since its founding Sigma Chi has initiated over 300,000 men.
The Gamma Xi chapter of Sigma Chi was founded at the University of Wyoming in 1930 and is very active in the Greek community as well as the Laramie community. Each year they hold a national philanthropy called Derby Days, which is a week-long event to raise money for the Huntsman’s Cancer Institute (HCI). Since Sigma Chi began donating to HCI in 2005, men and woman from across the country have raised 1 million dollars. Locally Sigma Chi volunteers with Big Brothers/Big Sister for pumpkin carving with kids in the fall and sledding with them on card board sleds during the winter. On campus the men of Sigma Chi are very involved. Many hold positions on the student governing body (ASUW), many are active in other student organizations, and academic honor roll as well.
Over the past decade Gamma Xi has received 8 Blue Petersons Awards and 1 Gold Peterson Award from the National fraternity for Outstanding Chapter of the Year. The Gold Peterson received in 2010 is only given to the top 5 chapters out of 243 nation-wide.
