Sigma Alpha Mu's Mission is to foster the development of collegiate men and our alumni by instilling strong fraternal values, offering social and service opportunities, encouraging academic excellence and teaching leadership skills. We will continue to attract members of all beliefs who appreciate our great heritage as a fraternity of Jewish men.
Founded in 1909 at the College of the City of New York, Sigma Alpha Mu has grown into a fraternity with 2,900 proud undergraduate members across 49 active chapters nationwide. Our values of "love for and loyalty to Alma Mater and its ideals" encourage members to serve the UConn community through the fraternity and other organizations in which they participate.
Currently, over $100,000 in scholarships are given away annually to our student members who demonstrate need and merit. Additionally, new members who are initiated with a 3.75 GPA or better will receive a $500 scholarship from the Guller Scholarship Program.
Sigma Alpha Mu has welcomes all men of good moral character into membership. The values prescribed in our Creed and Ritual help guide our members in their lives, and create bonds that last a lifetime.
