The Kappa Eta Chapter originally began as a Harvard fraternity named Eta Sigma Chi, which was founded in 1989. Chartered on May 2, 1992 by Sigma Chi International, the Kappa Eta Chapter is the oldest continuously active fraternity at Harvard University. Since its founding, it has attracted and traveled along with hundreds of members of the Harvard community throughout their undergraduate years.
The fundamental purpose of the Sigma Chi Fraternity is the cultivation, maintenance and accomplishment of the ideals of friendship, justice and learning within our membership. In order to pursue these ideals as a chapter we strive to create a reliable support network while encouraging any member to assume a leadership position and pursue initiatives to better the chapter. Our chapter's focus in the upcoming semester and year is on strengthening our bonds of brotherhood through chapter activities including, but not limited to, encouraging the use of our newly renovated house as a space for brothers to socialize, increasing the frequency of community service events where brothers will work together to build teamwork skills, and implementing an intra-fraternity peer tutoring program so that our membership can work together to grow, not only as leaders and friends, but as students as well.
Our members come from diverse backgrounds and pursue a wide variety of interests at Harvard. We welcome those who are interested in finding out more about out chapter.
