Greek Life is pleased to announce the return of Kappa Sigma to the Greek community. The group officially returned to Georgia State in January 2017 and will be recruiting new members in the spring 2017 semester.

Kappa Sigma was founded on December 10, 1869 at The University of Virginia, with international roots to Bologna, Italy established in 1400. Today, Kappa Sigma is the largest college social fraternity in the world with more than 200,000 living members, such as Jerry Jones, Jimmy Buffett, and Ted Turner, and more than 320 chapters and colonies throughout the U.S. and Canada.

The Kappa Sigma Fraternity believes in the everlasting pursuit of improvement in service, scholarship, leadership and fellowship. From the years 2013-2015, Kappa Sigma chapters throughout the nation raised over $5.8 million for charity. In the same time period, brothers across the U.S. contributed over 1.1 million community service hours. In the year 2007, Kappa Sigma created Military Heroes, a public charity which, since its inception, has raised over $1 million in an effort to aid service men and women wounded in defense of the nation. In pursuit of higher education, Kappa Sigma has contributed more than $4.5 million in scholarships for brothers who excel in their academia. Kappa Sigma encourages the development of leadership for their members. The results are seen in the success of countless CEOs and politicians, such as former CEO of AT&T Ben Gilmer and former Governor Sonny Perdue. With more than 20,000 undergraduate members the bond of friendship continues to grow.

Greek Life welcomes back Kappa Sigma to Georgia State University.
