    In June 2014, the Grand Chapter conducted a survey of undergraduate members, with the goal that survey results would allow the Grand Council to set a future direction of the Fraternity and improve the undergraduate fraternal experience.  Over 500 brothers responded.  Additionally, the purpose was:

    ·       To gauge why undergraduates join our fraternity,

    ·       To gauge overall satisfaction of the decision to join our Fraternity,

    ·       To collect leadership perspectives of undergraduate brothers,

    ·       And to better understand the individual, undergraduate brother experience.

    Below you will find the survey results in great detail and you can look forward to hearing more from Brother Kovacs in the Fall 2014 issue of The Signet at the end of the month. The Council would like to thank everyone who participated; your insights were appreciated.

    The Grand Chapter is pleased to announce that 24 associate members from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte have been initiated and formally chartered as the Beta Octaton Chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa.

    On September 20, Grand President Bill Neugebauer (Indiana/PA ‘67), Grand Chapter staff, and a ritual team from Mu Hexaton Chapter, initiated colony members and conducted the formal chartering ceremony for UNCC Colony.  The chartering banquet was held on campus in the Cone University Center, Lucas Room and saw over 80 family, friends, and guests in attendance. 

    UNCC Colony was originally colonized by Grand Chapter staff in November 2012.  Over the past 22 months the group has worked tirelessly and its petition to charter was approved in May 2014.  The men honored two undergraduate members as the recipients of Cardinal Principle Awards.  Joseph Bandoni received both the Brotherhood Award and Character Award, and Harrison Mull received the Scholarship Award.  Additionally, Brothers Andrew Willis (WPI ‘95) and James Conrad (Illinois ‘84) received the Fourth Degree during the ritual on Saturday and were awarded their Fourth Degree medallions at the banquet for their two years of service as chapter advisors.

    Should you wish to congratulate the Beta Octaton Chapter and welcome our new brothers, please direct your emails to Chapter President, Jackson Reid at wreid4@uncc.edu

Starting a Colony

If there is no existing chapter or colony at your school, you have the exciting opportunity to become a Founding Father for Phi Sigma Kappa! This is truly and honor, and a title only a few will ever hold. Read below, and see what is involved with starting a colony.

How to Start a New Colony

Typically, expansions fall into three categories: interest group, local fraternity affiliation and a national expansion. Their definitions are as follows:

Interest Group: An interest group is comprised of a number of men who are interested in bringing Phi Sigma Kappa to campus. An interest group can be as small as 10-15 men, or as large as 40-50.

Local Fraternity Affiliation: This type of expansion comes about when a local campus fraternity contacts Phi Sigma Kappa seeking to merge with our organization.

National Expansion: This type of expansion involves staff members building a colony from the ground up, from recruiting founding fathers and supporting alumni to appointing and training new colony officers. This type comprises the majority of Phi Sigma Kappa's expansions and can be the result of interest from local alumni and/or the institution.

When choosing where to expand, Phi Sigma Kappa considers a number of factors, including, but certainly not limited to:

  • Does the institution and Greek community support expansion?
  • What types of support does the institution offer the existing Greek community?
  • How many fraternities and sororities are on campus, and what percentage of students on campus are Greek?
  • Has Phi Sigma Kappa ever had a chapter there? When and why did Phi Sigma Kappa leave?
  • When was the most recent expansion, which fraternity was it, and was it successful?
  • Are the area alumni interested?
  • Is the campus growing, and are there plans for more construction on campus?
