Fraternities and sororities are values-based organizations founded upon the high ideals of leadership, scholarship, friendship, and civic engagement.
Leadership Development - Developing leaders through active participation and the opportunity to hold leadership positions.
Intellectual Advancement - Developing an appreciation for scholastic achievement and maintaining high academic standards among members.
Lifelong Relationships - Developing and maintaining close, interpersonal relationships with peers and engaging in networking opportunities.
Active Citizenship - Providing to local, national, and worldwide communities directly through service opportunities or indirectly through philanthropic endeavors.
In addition to these community values, each chapter upholds its own set of values through creeds, missions, and ritual. The combination of these values aid in the personal development of fraternity men and sorority women while providing an opportunity to learn outstanding citizenship.
In Kappa Sigma, we teach four very specific values we expect all gentlemen to possess: Fellowship, Leadership, Scholarship and Service. We expect, encourage, and fully support and aid our members to become great team players and understand what a brotherhood is. We train our members to become leaders, so that one day they can lead this world to a better state. We assist and monitor our members performance in the classroom and their study habits; because we believe that all great men were once great students. Lastly, we strongly support and become involved in the community around us; because we believe a gentleman is someone who is willing to do work for others and expect nothing in return.
All fraternities and sororities have their own structure for dues, and this can vary a great deal from chapter to chapter. In The Gamma-Nu Chapter of Kappa Sigma, we have the lowest dues at Washburn University.
*We are more than willing and happy to work out a payment plan for any member or pledge.
