Sigma

University of Nebraska

1884

Historical facts: ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

  1. The name Sigma was assigned to several chapters but then recalled before it became permanently assigned on May 19, 1884, to the chapter at the University of Nebraska.

  2. Before petitioning Kappa Kappa Gamma for a charter, the future charter members of Sigma did not seek the support of the chapters nearby at Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, or Minnesota. Instead, they wrote letters to Mu Chapter, Butler, in Indianapolis. 

  3. During the spring vacation of 1901, 13 members of Sigma accompanied Grand Secretary May Whiting to install Beta Mu Chapter at the University of Colorado. The fact that they all had railroad passes added to the pleasure of the occasion.

  4. By March 1925, after a time in another rented property, a chapter house became a necessity and ground was purchased. Construction began May 1.

Fun facts:

  1. To get involved on campus in 2015, Sigma Chapter initiated a brand-new event called “Kool Off With Kappa.” This was held during the second week of classes outside of the union. The chapter set up a table with a banner and members passed out popsicles to students as they walked by.

  2. In 2005, members assisted Eta Iota Chapter, Creighton, with Recruitment.
