Although the dues of a fraternity can be expensive, Phi Sig prides itself on being one of the cheapest houses on the hill. However, we understand everyone comes from different backgrounds, so we encourage any member to meet with our Treasurer to design a payment plan that works best for them.

Pledging is an educational process about the fraternity for new members that were given bids (or invitations) to join the fraternity. The process is designed to equip new members with the tools they need to become strong brothers while preparing them for the next step of full membership and potential leadership positions. Throughout the pledging process we aim to bond new members with their pledge class along with the rest of the fraternity, while teaching our core values.

Phi Sigma Kappa

Rush is a recruitment process at the beginning of each semester where prospective new members have the opportunity to meet, interact, and form connections with brothers through a variety of events sponsored by Phi Sig. Rush is the perfect opportunity to get to know the fraternity and for the fraternity to get to know you.

FAQs

We have a zero tolerance on hazing and do not allow it to be a part of our pledging process. 

What is Pledging?

What about Hazing?

"Upon joining, new members will immediately find themselves a part of an amazing community. You'll find friends for not only your four years, but for life. You'll find alumni always willing to provide career advice or opportunities. You'll find leadership and community service opportunities. In short, a support network that's always there for you, allowing for invaluable personal growth"

Absolutely not. With scholarship being one of our cardinal principles, we highly value our education and encourage members to perform well inside of the classroom. If a member is struggling, they can meet with our Scholarship Chair to help improve study habits, time management, etc. Often when joining a fraternity, members can find brothers taking similar classes, allowing for productive study environments.

How expensive is it to join a fraternity?

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.

Why Join a Fraternity?

Our Mission

Fraternities are rooted in a system of values based membership and are organizations that offer young men the opportunity to go beyond what a traditional college education may provide. While the classroom is a critical place for our members, the lessons learned through service to others and other leadership opportunities are what truly forges young man into what he aspires to be. Within these leadership opportunities, an individual will obtain leadership skills that will be precious after leaving the traditional classroom behind.

Fraternity men will gain a true life-long connection to their fellow members, whether they be the newest member at 18 years of age or the committed volunteer of age 87 who has given a lifetime of service and mentorship to those who came after him. Joining a fraternity is more than just the activity you choose for your time at university, it is a vow of service toward a dutiful mission for your lifetime.

At Phi Sigma Kappa, we believe in the development of men working toward a better world for all, positively affecting and engaging the communities in which we live and setting the stage for those leaders who are yet to come, be they Phi Sigs or not. A core value of Phi Sig is to “Commit to Lifelong Learning” which is the root of our philosophy of learning beyond the four years of college and the four walls of a traditional classroom.
