Sigma Chi was founded on June 28, 1855 by 7 men at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Over the years Sigma Chi has grown to become one of the oldest and largest fraternities in the world with 237 active chapters and nearly 300,000 members. Through philanthropic events Sigma Chi supports the Huntsman Cancer Institute and Children’s Miracle Network. The purpose of Sigma Chi is to promote the concepts of Friendship, Justice, and Learning. It also seeks to build brotherhood and life long membership among members. Sigma Chi’s initial goal is to develop values-based leaders committed to the betterment of character, campus, and community. The Theta Kappa Chapter of Sigma Chi at the University of Texas at Arlington has existed since March 31, 1984 and quickly grew to become one of the most thriving and prosperous chapters on campus. With successful philanthropy events such as Fight Night and Sigma Chi games the Theta Kappa chapter of Sigma Chi has raised and donated thousands of dollars in recent years. Brotherhood at Theta Kappa is significant between all brothers and exemplifies the cultivation of mind, body, and spirit.
