Kappa Sigma

Since its founding at the University of Virginia on December 10, 1869, The Kappa Sigma Fraternity has initiated more than 268,000 men on college campuses throughout the United States and Canada. Today, the Fraternity has over 192,000 living alumni and more than 17,000 undergraduate members stretching across 316 campuses.

Our proud history of producing campus leaders who go on to succeed in business, government, the armed services, sports, entertainment and the arts has led to Kappa Sigma’s continuous and unparalleled growth across the continent.

Kappa Sigma who was mainly introduced to ABAC in hopes of not only improving the character of the fraternity members, but also the living conditions of the Tifton community.

With no set amount of community service hours required by the 35-member fraternity, it is one of many things that they pride there selves on. With more than 1,300 community service hours logged in their first year of existence during the 2011-2012 school year and awards given by their national headquarters, the Kappa Sigma Fraternity is the first Greek organization on campus to come to ABAC.

The Fraternity continues to outreach in numerous community service events with blood drives, breast cancer events, and Relay for Life, which will be later in the semester.

What is Kappa Sigma Looking For?
We are devoted to finding men who will enhance and improve our brotherhood. If you are committed to participating in our fraternal activities, chapter meetings, community service projects, and leadership programs, we are looking for you.

What is Rush?
The term “rush” is another term for new membership recruitment. It is a great way to learn more about Kappa Sigma and the Greek Community that exists on the campus of ABAC. During rush, you will have the opportunity to meet the Brothers of Kappa Sigma, and other greek organizations to see which one fits you the best.

What is a Pledge?
A pledge is an associate member of the fraternity. Pledges go through the pledge process (probation) to fulfill their requirements of becoming a brother. It is a term used to differentiate between someone who has attained full membership in the fraternity. It is by no means demeaning. All members, regardless of membership status, work hard to promote the values of fraternity and live up to its standards.

What Happens During The Pledge Period?
You will learn Kappa Sigma’s history, traditions, and values. Pledges will have the opportunity to attend our meetings so you can get familiar with all of the brothers and how our fraternity works. Pledges are encouraged to come out to all our events and participate with us as much as possible. At the end of the pledge period, you are then initiated and become a full member of the fraternity.
