Kappa Sigma fraternity is formally installed on campus

21 men are initiated as founding members

Greek life at Lake Erie College takes a historic turn with the formal installation of the College’s first-ever men’s fraternity, Kappa Sigma. After a year-and-a-half of functioning as a colony, 21 men were formally initiated as founding members of the new Kappa Sigma Pi-Chi chapter on Aug. 29, 2009.

“It is exciting to be a member of the first initiated class,” said Brian Turk, a new initiate. “Not only are we the first fraternity on campus, but we are also the first chartered Greek organization on campus. We look forward to the growth of our fraternity as well as the overall growth of Greek life on our campus.”

Since its founding at the University of Virginia on December 10, 1869, Kappa Sigma has initiated more than 245,000 men on college campuses throughout the United States and Canada. Today, the Fraternity has over 175,000 living alumni, more than 13,500 undergraduate members and 100 active chapters. The brotherhood 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. 
 
Other Greek organizations currently on campus are Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity and Gamma Phi Beta sorority. Both are working toward achieving full chapter status.
