The brothers of Sigma Chi

Sigma Chi (pronounced "kai" not "chee"), Nu Nu chapter, is one of the fraternities recognized by the Interfraternity Council. The fraternity more commonly goes by its nickname Sig Chi.

In spring 2012 the chapter earned achievement awards in philanthropy (presented to chapters that raise over $60 per member) and campus involvement (presented to chapters where over 60% are involved in another campus activity.) The chapter also earned a 3 star ALPHA Standards of Excellence rating.

Service and Philanthropy

“A Sigma Chi acknowledges and accepts personal responsibilities to his family, to the communities in which he lives and participates, and to those who are less fortunate. A Sigma Chi voluntarily contributes his time, talents, and resources to help build a better society.”

- The Norman Shield

About Sigma Chi at Columbia

Sigma Chi is primarily composed of football players. They are perhaps Columbia's most "regular university" type fraternity. It "features heavy drinking and girls that want to be seen with fraternity guys."
