The Kappa Sigma Fraternity was founded on December 10th 1869 at the University of Virginia. The Texas State chapter was founded on February 12th, 1966. Kappa Sigma was the first fraternity at the University. This Theta Lambda chapter of Kappa Sigma has thrived for over 40 years as the leading fraternity on campus. A strong sense of brotherhood and commitment has guided our members from day one.
The fraternity has resided in many different houses over the years, but now it has found its final destination. The Kappa Sigma house sits on five acres of river front property. 1801 Uhland Drive has been the number one house for over 15 years in all the Greek community.
Throughout the years we have had hundreds of successful graduates from top CEOs to prosperous entrepreneurs. Kappa Sigma is known for its ability to create long lasting friendships. We pride ourselves on all aspects of college life. We have participated in intramural sports every year and various community service events through out San Marcos.
Kappa Sigma Fraternity has also contributed to 48 successful years of Fite Nite. Fite Nite is the largest amateur boxing event in the state of Texas. Every year fellow alumni and brothers come to the Hays County Civic Center to partake in Fite Nite. Over 3,500 people attend annually and there are typically 15 to 20 fights in one night. This event is always a great time. Fite Nite makes donations to local food banks as well.
This Fraternity has helped people become successful in every aspect of life. Kappa Sigma reinforces the importance of academics while also learning to network. Alumni support throughout the years
has encouraged brothers to seek jobs that will fulfill them for the future.
The brotherhood creates a positive environment for any Texas State University undergraduate. Brothers have made life long friends and memories that will always be a part of their life and college experience. The history will speak for itself.
