The Kappa Sigma Fraternity was founded in Italy in 1400, and at the University of Virginia in 1869. Lambda Delta was the first national fraternity chartered here at the University of West Georgia, on April 2,1971. Kappa Sigma has enjoyed great successes here and across the nation. In regards to size, Kappa Sigma is the third largest fraternity in the world with over 200 chapters nation-wide, with chapters reaching from the Atlantic to the Pacific and consisting of chapters in Canada.

The Star and Crescent shall not be worn by every man, but only by him who is worthy to wear it. He must be a gentleman ... a man of honor and courage ... a man of zeal, yet humble ... an intelligent man ... a man of truth ... one who tempers action with wisdom and above all else, one who walks in the light of God."

Kappa Sigma is an order of gentlemen that seeks to better ourselves as men and as people. We hold honors as to the Greek Man of the Year, Homecoming King, and can also claim honors to "five consecutive Challenge Cups", which goes to the best intramural team on campus. Kappa Sigma is not a home for everyone, but only to those looking to better themselves physically and scholarly.
