A MESSAGE FROM OUR prESIDENT
Kappa Sigma at UCSB is a chapter of the world’s largest college fraternity founded on Four Pillars: Fellowship, Leadership, Scholarship and Service, and our members strive to exemplify these in their daily lives. As a young, diverse fraternity, we offer a multitude of opportunities to our members to get involved, develop leadership skills, give back to their community, succeed academically, build lifelong bonds with brothers, and apply our values in their never-ending quest to become better men.
Currently, 2018 is shaping up to be a momentous year for our chapter! Our chapter now occupies the largest fraternity property in Isla Vista, acquired through the dedication and teamwork of dozens of brothers. We are planning our first large-scale philanthropy competition this October, and our members are preparing to participate in an exclusive leadership and team-building training weekend led by a former Navy SEAL. At Kappa Sigma, we’re proud of who we are, what we’ve done, and what we’re doing to improve the college experience for our members and fellow students at UCSB.
