In 1855, seven young men set the foundation for a lifelong course of development that has since provided more than 300,000 men with the structure to understand how to make a positive influence on the world.
On September 10, 1858, Lockwood and Scobey, the last of the original Sigma Chi Founders to graduate from Miami University, established the Lambda Chapter at Indiana University in Bloomington, now the oldest chapter in continual existence in Sigma Chi.
The ranks of Sigma Chis now include titans of industry, celebrities, political leaders, husbands, fathers, brothers and many more. Each member brings so many different characteristics to the world, yet we all bring the same endowment of character that our world needs today.
Principle-driven leaders are needed now more than ever before, and the fact that Sigma Chi makes a concerted effort to contribute to the development of such men is what makes the Fraternity so important, now and in the future.
