Sigma Chi

Sigma Chi Greek letters
Sigma Chi was started June 28, 1855 at the Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and today is a brotherhood with roots in the collegiate experience that gives rise to a lifelong commitment to strive to achieve true friendship, equal justice, and the fulfillment of learning. Since being established in 1943, Gamma Omega has developed as a lively and dynamic organization; committed to bettering the community of the University of Connecticut academically and philanthropically through the bond of our brotherhood. Being one of the oldest fraternities at UConn, we have been blessed with carrying on many traditions. We thank those before us that have given us the opportunity to continue bettering ourselves and our community around us. Once joining, each and every member wakes up proud to be a Sigma Chi for life.

Message from the Chapter President

I spent three semesters outside of Greek-life; and as I embark into my third semester as a member, I can confidently say that Sigma Chi has had an unfathomable impact on my college experience. Having a background in sports and a strong enthusiasm for technology, I wasn’t sure if a fraternity would be the right fit for me to continue my interests. As it turned out, I never once questioned my decision; and I now can’t imagine how college life would be without it. As an all encompassing organization, there is nothing Sigma Chi can’t offer. Not only does the organization offer an unbreakable brotherhood, but it advances oneself as a person. Sigma Chi teaches you how to balance all facets of life and promotes friendship, learning, and distinction. With a strong focus on academics, campus involvement, and additional clubs; our organization has given brothers a college experience they will never forget, and a plethora of experiences and lifelong tools that will be used in the real world.
