History of the Theta-Eta Chapter

The Theta-Eta chapter of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity was founded by an intramural football team called the “Hot Dogs.”

Before becoming a chapter of Kappa Sigma they were known as Chi Sigma Epsilon.

On February 16, 1963, they became a colony of Kappa Sigma.

On June 1, 1963, Theta Eta was granted their charter making Kappa Sigma the first national fraternity on campus.

On June 1, 1966, the Kappa Sigma lodge was completed.

Theta-Eta has initiated 672 brothers to date.
