Kappa Upsilon Sigma chapter was the culmination of the inner workings of brothers from New Jersey Alumni chapters. On September 25, 1995, the brothers of Epsilon Sigma Chapter (Trenton area alumni chapter) invited the brothers of Zeta Rho Sigma Chapter (Southern New Jersey alumni chapter) to their monthly chapter meeting at the Martin House Learning Center in Trenton, New Jersey. At this meeting, the brothers of Zeta Rho Sigma proposed a possible merger of the two chapters in an effort to strengthen the presence and increase the productivity of Sigma in our community.
On January 22, 1996 after several meetings, the bodies of both chapters agreed to the consolidation and applied for a new chapter charter with a record breaking thirty-three brothers. We were officially granted a chapter by the fraternity on March 18, 1996 and Kappa Upsilon Sigma Chapter was born.
As a chapter Kappa Upsilon Sigma serves the communities of Atlantic and Burlington counties. Throughout the years Kappa Upsilon Sigma chapter has established or participates in the following programs to meet the fraternities’ initiatives of Education, Social Action and Bigger and Better Business; The American Cancer Society, March of Dimes Birth Defects Foundation, American Red Cross National Bone Marrow Drive, NAACP, National Urban League, National Pan Hellenic Council and Phi Beta Sigma’s Sigma Beta Club.
With the establishment of new chapters serving the Camden, Trenton and Gloucester areas, Kappa Upsilon Sigma Chapter continues to promote its initiative throughout the Burlington and Atlantic counties. The brothers of Kappa Upsilon Sigma Chapter over the years have fostered a true bond of brotherhood and truly believe in our fraternities’ motto, “Culture for Service and Service for Humanity”. As educated and professional men we feel it is our mission to give back to the community in which we came and hopefully have a strong impact on the lives of those we touch.
