Alpha Sigma Phi
Our Vision: to Better the World through Better Men.
Our Mission: to be the co-curricular and continuing organization of choice.
Our Purpose: to Better the Man, through the creation and perpetuation of brotherhood founded upon the values of character: Silence, Charity, Purity, Honor, Patriotism.
Our Motto: to Better the Man.
Alpha Sigma Phi is not interested in only becoming the fraternity of choice, for this perspective unnecessarily narrows our recruitment efforts to those inclined to go Greek. We instead, will be focused on appealing to a broader base of undergraduate men, thereby competing directly with other activities and organizations on today's campuses. By so doing, we help to ensure that we attract and recruit the very best and brightest undergraduate men.
We have chosen to define our Fraternity as a co-curricular
organization to underscore our desire to partner with the institutions that
host our chapters in their endeavor to prepare their students for success after

As such, it is the vision of Lambda Chi Alpha to extend itself beyond the traditional social fraternity in practice and principle. Our core values include loyalty, duty, respect, service + stewardship, honor, integrity, and personal courage. In 1972, Lambda Chi Alpha became the first fraternity to abolish pledging to promote an anti-hazing culture in its chapters. The West Virginia colony of Lambda Chi strives to better each and every man involved with the organization, while providing services and support to the community around us. Over the last year, approximately 4.4 million pounds of food was raised in partnership with Feeding America.

Phi Delta Theta
Phi Delta Theta was built on three pillars that haven’t budged an inch since the Fraternity was founded by “The Immortal Six” way back in 1848 at Miami University. The pillars are: The cultivation of friendship among its members, the acquirement individually of a high degree of mental culture, and the attainment personally of a high standard of morality. Shortened, we refer to the principles as friendship, sound learning and rectitude.
Helping every individual to meet his true potential is the bedrock of the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity. By celebrating each person’s true self, and by learning from each others strengths while helping to improve each others weaknesses, every member of Phi Delta Theta develops into a greater version of himself than he could ever on his own. Rather than try to find young men to “mold” into some ideal, we celebrate the uniqueness of each individual and, through encouragement, values, example and brotherhood, empower every brother to exceed his personal expectations.

Phi Sigma Kappa
Phi Sigma Kappa is a lifelong brotherhood dedicated to the betterment of the individual, the university community, and our world, by giving its members opportunities to develop leadership skills, participate in service to others, achieve academic excellence, experience cultural diversity and practice personal integrity. The fraternity is devoted to the promotion of its three Cardinal Principles: the promotion of brotherhood, the stimulation of scholarship, and the development of character. Most of its first two dozen chapters were granted to schools in New England and Pennsylvania, therefore its early development was strongly Eastern in character, eventually operating chapters at six of the eight Ivy League schools as well as more egalitarian state schools. It later expanded to the South and West. The fraternity has approximately 90 active chapters and colonies in North America.

Theta Chi Fraternity is one of the oldest and largest men’s fraternities in North America today. Our past is indeed proud, reflecting a society founded by two young idealistic cadets. For 46 years, Theta Chi was but one chapter, Alpha at Norwich University. Our growth from 1902 and over the next century is a tribute to the standards, ideals, and objectives of those cadets and over 161,000 men who have followed them and taken the vows of Theta Chi Fraternity. Those ideals and standards are as attractive and as meaningful today as in 1856. Our growth and expansion demonstrate that there are many thousands of young men who join our chapters and colonies each year to share in that brotherhood.
Our fraternity prides itself on its ability to help young
men of character to achieve the best college experience possible. Our maxim
states “Alma Mater First and Theta Chi for Alma Mater.” This definitely sums up
our commitment to excellence academically. As a fraternity, we strive to be
above the All Men’s GPA because we realize that although college is the “best
four years of your life,” it is also the four years that will determine the
rest of your life. We Theta Chi’s are also noted for our campus involvement and
helping the community.
