Why Harvard Sigma Chi?

The Kappa Eta Chapter originally began as a Harvard fraternity named Eta Sigma Chi, 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 alongside hundreds of members of the Harvard community throughout their undergraduate years.

Our chapter strives to cultivate an environment that makes all members feel welcome, regardless of background. Alumni of our chapter have gone on to found multi-billion-dollar businesses, become members of Congress, and much more. Our alumni are actively involved with our chapter and deeply care about the personal and professional growth of undergraduates.
