Frequently Asked Questions
The fundamental purpose of Sigma Chi is to cultivate an appreciation of and commitment to the ideals of friendship, justice and learning within our membership. We achieve these ideals through the practice of character qualities embodied in our Ritual. Although this vision of Sigma Chi is based on the notion of shared ideals, we believe that true friendship thrives best among men of different temperaments, talents, and convictions. Sigma Chi is known for building leaders, and our members have a reputation of putting Character in Action to change their communities.
Sigma Chi opposes hazing. Hazing is antithetical to the noble ideals of our fraternity. We are committed to a membership education period which instills a sense of responsibility in the new members. This period will assist your son in overcoming some of his concerns about success in college.
In addition, we are part of a international fraternity organization which offers support, advice, and direction through paid professional staff and regional volunteers. Professional staff from the university are also employed to assist and monitor the activities of the fraternity.
