Kappa Sigma is the longest standing fraternity on campus here at the University of California, Irvine. As we celebrate 34 years of excellence, we proudly advance a tradition of dominance and seek to further ourselves as a chapter, as brothers, and individually as independent gentlemen. In addition to being the premiere social presence here at UCI, we routinely produce scholars, athletes, and leaders – men of the highest caliber. Furthermore, Kappa Sigma is notably committed to positively impacting both UCI and the surrounding community through service and our various philanthropies.

--------------------------- RUSH SCHEDULE ------------------------

For all events: Please feel free to stop by the Kappa Sigma House in Arroyo Vista: 1040 Arroyo Drive, Irvine, CA 92617

Monday (01/04) – Wings Night
What better way to welcome the New Year than with good company and the kind of wings that’ll bring any poultry farmer to tears. Tears of joy of course, who knew those chickens would ever taste that good? Play your cards right and there may be a free house tour waiting behind door number 3. Just stay away from door 2, our lawyer suggested liability waivers but ink’s expensive and ambiguous suggestions are more affordable.

Meet at the Kappa Sigma House at 7pm.

Tuesday (01/05 & 01/12) – Taco Tuesday
Ah, Taco Tuesday. That time of the week when you dress in your finest silks and satins, dust off your grandpa’s sombrero, and go out in the hopes of finally making it through the doors of that high class taco joint, only to be denied because your mustache is too patchy or your accent too French, ultimately leaving you to beg outgoing patrons for scraps of soggy tortilla chips. Lucky for you, Kappa Sigma has the best taco man this side of the Mexican border, so come enjoy this rare luxury with our active members.

Meet at the Kappa Sigma House at 7pm.

Wednesday (01/06 & 01/13) - Meet the Bros
The gentlemen of Kappa Sigma, both active members and alumni, are eager to meet those of you interested in our beloved chapter. Share some insightful conversation with the men who’ve continued to improve and support this chapter far beyond their graduation, and who exist as living examples of the lifelong bonds that we’ve cultivated as members and brothers of Kappa Sigma.

Meet at the Kappa Sigma House at 7pm.

Thursday (01/07) – Newport BBQ
Take in the beautiful sunset and breeze of Newport Beach while hanging out and grubbing on some grade A BBQ at one of our many Newport houses.

Rides from the Kappa Sigma House leave at 6pm.

Friday (01/08) – INVITE ONLY EVENT - 6pm

Monday (01/11) - Driving Range
Whether you can drill a 300-yard bomb or have only played mini golf in your life, come out and have a good time at one of Irvine’s pristine driving ranges where the grass is bright green and the air is crisp. Practice that Tiger Woods-esque swing or just come chill after a long day. Prior experience, polo shirts, and golf caddies optional.

Rides from the Kappa Sigma House leave at 6pm.

------------------------- SCHOLARSHIP ------------------------------

We are all university students in pursuit of a higher education, striving for academic excellence and distinction. Many brothers aggressively tackle demanding majors and double-majors ranging from sciences and engineering specializations, to business administration, and pre-law focuses… ambitious endeavors, especially while balancing social obligations and other responsibilities. Fortunately, Kappa Sigma has a well-established scholastic tradition. Our extensive alumni network and chapter resources provide brothers with the means to succeed in any situation; mentors, study materials, teacher and course recommendations, etc., whatever is needed: available. Moreover, since 1947 Kappa Sigma collectively has awarded over $4.5 million in scholarships, and through the Kappa Sigma Endowment Fund, continues to recognize deserving brothers for their hard work.

--------------------- FELLOWSHIP/SOCIAL -------------------------

Your college experience can either be one dismissed, or among the most significant and electric moments of your life. Kappa Sigma has the most ambitious and relentless social calendar of any fraternity on campus; ask around, our reputation speaks for itself. We maintain excellent relations with all sororities on campus and extremely well known for our incredible, and routinely held, sorority exchanges. Words fail to describe our venue parties; the only appropriate ones are inappropriate for this description. Regardless, with our Sorority Appreciation party, Halloween Cocktail, Dynasty Days formal, SWAT-sponsored Lake Havasu trip, and Player Hater’s Ball, headlining formal and informal sorority exchanges, brotherhood retreats, and Newport and Costa Mesa house parties, it’s easy to see why Kappa Sigma is the undisputed social juggernaut here at UCI.

Men are called to lead. From the moment a Kappa Sigma pledge is chosen to the day of his graduation, every brother is being groomed to take upon himself the mantle of leadership and a greater responsibility. We are taught to always take the initiative and above all else, be steadfast and to never be led astray from an objective nor compromise the integrity of character based upon another’s words. As an assembly of leaders, Kappa Sigma boasts impressive campus involvement and a strong presence at the university.

We take pride in our House in Arroyo Vista. Kappa Sigma was the first of only five fraternities to be granted a house on campus; we have never been asked to leave. It accommodates 18 of our finest brothers and welcomes all Kappa Sigmas within its walls. An invaluable forum for Monday-night meetings and private chapter business, 1040 Arroyo Drive is also a place for all of us to call home.

------------------------ SERVICE ---------------------------------
Great men lead by example. The University of California, Irvine and Kappa Sigma Nationals annually recognizes this Mu-Delta chapter of Kappa Sigma for its dedication to service. We take pride in our diversity as a chapter, and as a result support each brother in his individual philanthropic interests. Consequently, we have developed and continued to maintain strong ties with various organizations, from the LAPD to Nike, as we strive to better our surroundings and to help those unable to do the same. We take our philanthropic efforts seriously, both as a means to (in all humility) “give back” to the community and to better ourselves as gentlemen.

— Raised over 3000 dollars in Spring 2015 for the Military Heroes Campaign hosted by the brothers of the Mu Delta Chapter of Kappa Sigma that involves sorority and other fraternity participation in booth events, competitions, restaurant-sponsored fundraisers (ex.
