Kappa Sigma Xi Upsilon

We are the Xi-Upsilon Chapter of Kappa Sigma at Texas A&M University-Commerce. We were founded on campus in 2002. Since then, we as a chapter strive to enstill the Pillars of Scholarship, Leadership, Fellowship, and Service in the lives of young college men, while offering them a college experience unlike any other. During the 2012-2013 school year alone, the Xi-Upsilon logged numerous service hours while participating in the Kappa Sigma National Days of Service for Fall and Spring. We are also proud to say that our chapter currently has one of the highest cumulative GPA's of all fraternities at Texas A&M-Commerce while continuing to dominate in sports such as soccer, basketball, tennis, and corn hole to name a few. We hope to continue these traditions of excellence as a fraternity and as a chapter. If you are interested in joining the Xi-Upsilon chapter or have any questions feel free to contact us through the rush  or contact us pages!

How does joining Kappa Sigma work?

First, you will go through IFC formal recruitment week which will include familiarizing you with the several fraternities on campus. At the end of the week, you will receive a bid if the fraternity so decides. This begins your pledge process. During this time, you will be familiarized with Kappa Sigma's history and values along with forming relationships with the members and your pledge brothers.

Alternatively, contact a member of the Fraternity and they will be happy to give you information to begin your process in becoming a true and lawful Kappa Sigma right away. 

What if I miss IFC Recruitment Week?

That's ok! Kappa Sigma participates in year-round recruitment. Contact any member to inquire.

Will joining Kappa Sigma cause my GPA to drop?

Absolutely not. Kappa Sigma has the highest GPA of all fraternities on campus, which have exceeded the All Men's Average at Texas A&M University Commerce. One of our four pillars is Scholarship and we make sure that our members are fulfilling their academic obligations.

Will I be hazed if I join Kappa Sigma?

No. We have a strong anti-hazing policy.

Are there any scholarship opportunities in Kappa Sigma?

Yes! The Kappa Sigma Endowment Fund is the oldest fraternity scholarship fund of it's kind! Last year the Endowment Fund raised over 1 million dollars for brothers.
