Words by Clyde P. Johnson, Cincinnati and Cornell 1893

Of all the ones that near perfection, Stainless, without gloss,
Sigma Chi is my selection, We revere its cross.


Hail the cross, the snow white cross! Its praise always tell;
Prize, o prize our glitt'ring emblem, Guard, o guard it well!
Long ago in old Miami, Seven men of old,
Raised aloft our glor'ous emblem, Snow white cross of gold.

Our mission is to develop values-based leaders committed to the betterment of character, campus and community.

The fundamental purpose of the Sigma Chi Fraternity is the cultivation, maintenance and promotion of the core values of Friendship, Justice and Learning.

In the pursuit of these high ideals, the Sigma Chi Fraternity is able to offer tremendous value in augmenting the collegiate experience and supporting the lifelong journey of each of its members. We hope to assist brothers in becoming men of character, caring husbands, compassionate fathers and community leaders.
