Kappa Sigma History

Kappa Sigma in America was founded one chilly evening in the fall of 1869, as five students attending the University of Virginia in Charlottesville gathered in William Grigsby McCormick's room at 46 East Lawn and planted the seed of Brotherhood. For many weeks the bonds of friendship had drawn these five together; now the need became clear for a formal structure to contain their feelings. Thus, not only did the Founders formalize their friendship, but they also created a fraternity steeped in the traditions of the past and dedicated to the Pursuit of Learning. The new brothers recorded their bond in a Constitution and in an Oath which set forth the ideals and principles to all Kappa Sigmas today.

Nu-Upsilon History

May 8, 1993 is the founding date of NY. The Nu Upsilon phenomenon has generated and educated young men to become better men and instill within them a "love for the order". From the moment Kappa Sigma entered the campus gates, it began to change the face of Winthrop University and challenge all other Greek fraternities to live up to its standards. Few have answered the call. We are proud to be known as the gentlemen about campus. Since our inception we have pledged only the cream of the crop, those men that we believe will uphold our most sacred traditions and solemn obligations.
