Chi Sigma Alpha was founded in 2002 at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg, Virginia.  To date, Chi Sigma Alpha has invited over 300 individuals and 14 chapters to membership since its formation.  

The primary symbol and logo of Chi Sigma Alpha is a three-pillared temple with the Society’s letters above the pillars, the motto below, and the Society’s three values (academics, research, and service) inscribed vertically on the pillars.

The colors of the Society are maroon and gold. Maroon honors Chi Sigma Alpha’s Alpha Chapter at Virginia Tech.  Gold represents the Society’s commitment to excellence.

The motto of Chi Sigma Alpha is Ut Provocem Et Adiuvem, which means “That I May Challenge and Support.”

In May of 2011 the Delta chapter of CSA at the University of South Carolina Columbia became the second National Headquarters for the organization.
