The Office of Student Organizations and Greek Life at Randolph-Macon College is proud to welcome back Phi Kappa Sigma International Fraternity. The Tau Chapter of Phi Kappa Sigma International Fraternity has been home to many of R-MC’s finest community members. We are very excited to have them back on campus and to support their re-colonization efforts.
Phi Kappa Sigma’s push for re-colonization will begin on March 5, 2008 with two sessions in the Brown Campus Center at 6:30pm and 9:00pm in the Koffman Gallery. All unaffiliated men who are interested in becoming founding fathers of this incredible organization are invited to attend.
Phi Kappa Sigma International Fraternity was founded by Samuel Brown Wylie Mitchell at the University of Pennsylvania on August 16, 1850. Phi Kappa Sigma International Fraternity has Chapters in both the United States and Canada and currently has over 60 active Chapters, Colonies, and interest groups with over 2,000 active members and 40,000 living alumni.
Phi Kappa Sigma is more than an organization to be a part of during college; it is a valuable learning experience, a life-ling commitment, and philosophy of life. Along with the Phi Kappa Sigma Ritual, our Purpose and Principles state who and what we are as a Fraternity and as members of that Fraternity. All members take an oath to uphold these ideals and it is up to all of us to make sure that we, and those who come after us, learn and understand what it is to be a true "Phi Kap" and "Man of Honor" and incorporate that into our Chapters and into our lives.
The theme of our 89th Grand Chapter was "A Return to Our Founding Principles" and since then Phi Kappa Sigma has been working with our Chapters to help them re-focus on the Purpose and Principles that Phi Kappa Sigma was founded on over 153 years ago. We drafted a Statement of Core Values at our 90th Grand Chapter in Philadelphia in the summer of 2000, and have started an annual leadership development program called "Men of Honor." In 2004 at our 92nd Grand Chapter in Chicago, our members created the Doctrine of Excellence. The Doctrine of Excellence will serve as a road map for our Fraternity to apply our Statement of Core Values.
