ON THE EARLY SPRING morning of April 6th, 1905 our founding fathers established the Gamma-Zeta Chapter of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity for undergraduate men attending New York University. Those first members became the forbears of a society of top sporting gentlemen and intellectuals, and after 112 years of brotherhood, our fraternity is now steeped in tradition, secret history and the enduring pursuit of spending leisurely weekends mixing with sororities. Among our many intrinsic values, we firmly believe in the pillars of Fellowship, Scholarship, Service, Leadership and that Saturdays are for the boys.
We are proud to be able to say that of the 15 fraternal organizations on NYU’s Campus, Kappa Sigma currently ranks second highest in terms of GPA and philanthropy dollars, and we rank first in service hours. But we also enjoy a healthy dose of competition, placing among the top three fraternities for NYU Greek Week—which includes a host of sports and competitive activities. Furthermore, Kappa Sigma is known internationally as the largest college fraternal organization in the world, allowing our members to tap a rich network and society of Brothers across the globe.
But most importantly, we believe that our chapter exists to appreciate the lifelong bond of brotherhood and camaraderie that comes with being a Kappa Sig. Our brothers are not just friends; they are family.
