About Sigma Chi


Brotherhood

Sigma Chi is a brotherhood with roots in the collegiate experience that engenders a lifelong commitment to strive to achieve true friendship, equal justice and the fulfillment of learning as part of our overall responsibilities to the broader communities in which we live. Our mission is to develop values-based leaders committed to the betterment of character, campus, and community.

The brothers of Sigma Chi attend Chapter meetings every week to discuss business and share the special bond of brotherhood. An officer in the house known as Brotherhood Chair organizes and sets up Brotherhood events, where the Chapter as a whole celebrates its brotherhood and one another's company.

 

Leadership

Sigma Chi offers a plethora leadership opportunities to its members, both within chapters such as Delta Phi as well as on the national level. Every year, Delta Phi brothers have had the opportunity to participate in Sigma Chi's competitive and prestigious Horizons Leadership Training Program, and the Sigma Chi headquarters employs numerous alumni of the chapter. Within the Delta Phi Chapter there are opportunities for leadership within philanthropies, scholarship, and social planning and the top leadership positions within the chapter offer invaluable leadership experience that few other organizations can hope to match at an undergraduate level.

In addition, the top executive members attend the Balfour Leadership Training Workshop every summer, where they learn the inner workings of the Fraternity's leadership and how to successfully lead a large group like a Chapter.

 

Community Service and Philanthropy

If there's one thing our Chapter is notorious for in the greater Tacoma area, it's our commitment to the community. We participate on a regular basis in events that enrich the lives the people of Tacoma and our campus. Through the year, we participate in local events such as Pierce County AIDS Walk and Proctor Treats, as well as showing strong numbers at the other Greek houses' philanthropy events, such as Gamma Phi Beta's "Turkey Bowl" Flag Football Tournament, and Pi Beta Phi's "Arrow Spike" Volleyball Tournament.

In addition, we run an event called Derby Days every year, a week-long fundraiser for The St. Baldrick's Foundation. During this event, the sororities of campus compete to earn the most points for their house, through protecting their "Derby Daddies", getting the most shirt signatures in "Sign-A-Sig", participating in a "Penny War", among many other things. It's easily the most entertaining week of the year for both Sigma Chi and the campus community!

 

Scholarship

Here at the Delta Phi Chapter, we pride ourselves on our tradition of high academic standard and achievement. Brothers of Delta Phi are held to the highest of standards academically. Our studious endeavors demonstrate one aspect of our "work hard, play hard" mentality.

Each active brother is required to maintain at least a 2.5/4.0 in order to be in good academic standing. Our scholarship program provides the chapter with incentives and opportunities for learning; over the years, we have run scholarship raffles, invited guest faculty speakers for house dinners, implemented a "high/low" mentoring program, and organized workshops for resume and thesis-writing.

The Sigma Chi Foundation offers more than $300,000 each year in educational scholarships. Individual leadership scholarships can range from $1,000-2,500.

**Sigma Chi study tables are held in an exclusive room in the Puget Sound library that provides an atmosphere where brothers and pledges can study and help each other study.
