Joining a fraternity has many advantages. Here are a few that Sigma Chi proudly exhibits.


A study done at Oklahoma and Oregon State Universities show that fraternity men are more likely to earn a degree than non-affiliated students. Sigma Chi strives to maximize the potential of all brothers and pledges in their scholastics. This is done through the forms of study tables, tutoring, and time-management. A Sigma Chi realizes that scholarship is his first duty; he went to college to get an education.

Community Service

Aristotle once said, “In the arena of human life the honors and rewards fall to those who show their good qualities in action.” Sigma Chi has been a leader in fraternities for providing philanthropic service and support for over for over 27 years. At Kent State University, the Sigma Chi’s participate in a weeklong philanthropic event involving other Greeks, known as Derby Days, to help raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network.


At Zeta Lambda brothers possess different temperaments, talents, and convictions. In Sigma Chi, you will form not only form many friendships, but you will also form a brotherly bond with each of it’s members. It is these friendships, this brotherhood, Sigma Chi gives to each of its associates. This friendship, this brotherhood, is a lifelong bond, not a four-year program.


In the fall of 2011, the Zeta Lambda chapter of Sigma Chi will be involved in many different intramural sports (volleyball, basketball, and flag football). Playing sports among brothers is a great way to build sportsmanship, friendship and just to have an all around good time.

As you can clearly see, being in a fraternity builds leadership skills. In the fraternity, you will be “in charge” of an event or a duty. Everyone in the fraternity is a leader, whether you’re an officer, an executive, on a committee, or just a participant. You will learn by doing. You’ll learn how to manage a budget, run effective meetings, speak in public, motivate others… skills that will help you in college and throughout your life. These days it takes more than just a degree to get a good job – it takes leadership experience, and by running for an office in a fraternity, you can get as much as you can handle.
