Why Rush Sigma Chi?
The experiences you have in college will be some of the best memories of your life. Fraternities provide some of the best experiences in college, as well as after graduation. With over 290,000 initiated members and over 15,000 undergraduate members, Sigma Chi is one of the biggest and best fraternities in the Greek world. For over 150 years, Sigma Chi has been committed to the high ideals of friendship, justice, and learning. We strive to be the best in all that we do.
Sigma Chi brings together men of different temperaments, talents, and convictions that unite them in a lifelong bond shared among all Sigs. Our large and supportive alumni base is an example of the lifelong commitment that you make when you become a Sigma Chi. The Kappa Kappa Chapter at the University of Illinois is one of the oldest and strongest chapters in Sigma Chi. That tradition is carried on today, and it is done by recruiting men who fulfill the Jordan Standard set forth by Founder Isaac Jordan.
The Jordan Standard
At Sigma Chi, we strive to pledge new members who meet the criteria outlined in the Jordan Standard. The Jordan standard reads:
The standard with which the fraternity started was declared by Isaac M. Jordan to be that of admitting no man to membership in Sigma Chi who is not believed to be:
A man of good character…
A student of fair ability…
With ambitious purposes…
A congenial disposition…
Possessed of good morals…
Having a high sense of honor and
A deep sense of personal responsibility.
