National History

More than 100 years ago, a Sigma Chi defined fraternity as “an obligation, a necessity, an introduction, a requirement, a passport, a lesson, an influence, an opportunity, an investment, a peacemaker and a pleasure.”

Take a few moments to scratch the surface of our history by learning about the seven founders. Read about the early years of the Fraternity and the struggles that the earliest members encountered. Our story spans decades of world history: from the Founders’ experiences in the Civil War to Sigs who are banding together in the Armed Forces today.

With chapters throughout North America and alumni who have traveled and lived all around the globe, Sigma Chi has made journeys over space as well as time: from the Founding Site in Old Miami to alumni chapters meeting on the beaches of Hawaii.
