(No Transcript)
  • Sigma Pi (S?) is an international college social
    fraternity with chapters in the United States and
    Canada. Like most social fraternities, membership
    is by invitation and limited to men. Founded on
    February 26, 1897 at Vincennes University by
    William Raper Kennedy, James Thompson Kingsbury,
    George Martin Patterson, and Rolin Rosco James,
    it started as Tau Phi Delta (?F?), a literary
    society with fraternal ideals.
  • Tau Phi Delta changed its name to The Sigma Pi
    Fraternity, United States in 1907 and began
    establishing new chapters that same year. With
    the establishment of the Fraternity's first
    Canadian chapter in 1984, the organization's name
    was changed to The Sigma Pi Fraternity,
  • The Fraternity was the first of its kind to be
    founded west of the Ohio Valley and a charter
    member of the North-American Interfraternity
    Conference. Among other things, Sigma Pi promotes
    fellowship, scholarship, chivalry, and character
    by organizing social, academic, and philanthropy
    events for its members and the communities in
    which its chapters are located.
  • Today, Sigma Pi consists of 136 active collegiate
    groups, dozens of alumni clubs, and over 88,000
    initiates. In addition, a separate, but related
    entity, the Sigma Pi Educational Foundation,
    manages trust assets for the educational benefit
    of both members and non-members. The Fraternity
    is headquartered in Brentwood, Tennessee.
