"Sigma Chi is by far the greatest place to live. Ever"
-Emese Legeny (Sigma Chi cook since 1987)
The first and oldest housed Fraternity at Stanford, Sigma Chi proudly combines tradition, loyalty, and achievement with an unparalleled commitment to having a successful experience during college and beyond.
Sigma Chi is unlike any other Greek Chapter on campus. We definitely have a great time – at our parties, formals at off-campus locations, events with both on-campus sororities as well as sororities from Berkeley, Santa Clara, and USC, and regular pilgrimages to Tahoe, Vegas, Mexico, SoCal, and New Orleans' Mardi Gras, among others. We have competitive teams for all IM sports, as well as Varsity and Club sports athletes, and love rallying for sporting events anytime, anywhere.

However, the Sigma Chi experience goes beyond partying. Sigma Chi is committed to bringing together a group of ambitious men with different temperaments, talents, and convictions who share a common goal: the desire to have a great time and form a close group of brothers. We bring together talented athletes, musicians, scholars, and campus leaders to form a Fraternity of truly amazing people.
Our uniqueness extends to our house: we own it – a claim that no other fraternity on campus can make. Spend some time in our house and you will undoubtedly feel the real difference in the atmosphere of a Fraternity house, not a Fraternity dorm. We have recently completed a $3 million capital campaign for significant renovations on our Chapter House. We finished construction in 2006 and when you step inside our House, we're proud to say you'll experience the finest residence on campus.
Membership in Sigma Chi offers the chance to be part of a prestigious legacy at Stanford and nationwide. Without question, Sigma Chi has the closest ties with its alumni of any Greek group on campus, providing career connections and social networks that last a lifetime. Improved alumni relations have helped many brothers secure jobs and internships. Sigma Chi at Stanford has recently implemented the Sigma Chi Alpha Omega Summer Internship program which has landed our Brothers positions at investment banks such as Morgan Stanley in New York, start-ups in Palo Alto, the UCLA Medical Center, as well as hedge funds, micro-breweries, and biotech companies in San Diego. The new program continues to grow and is a reflection of both the strength of our alumni relations and the capabilities of actives. Additionally, Sigma Chi Alpha Omega has partnered with the Career Development Center to pilot a new Alumni Mentoring network.
Most importantly, there is a solid foundation of brotherhood that characterizes our house. We live by It is what binds together our different temperaments, talents, and convictions and creates lifelong friendships. We invite you to come over to The Hou' anytime and catch a glimpse of the unique experience that is Sigma Chi.
The Sigma Chi Brotherhood extends to academic achievement. While we like to play hard, we also believe in working hard. Besides holding in-house academic programming, hosting inspiring professors such as Tobias Wolff, and awarding Sigma Chi scholarships for academic excellence, we promote scholarship within the college experience by taking pride in genuinely supporting each other as students.
The Brothers of Sigma Chi believe in being involved in the local community and helping others. Recently, we have volunteered our house to host an American Red Cross Blood Drive, hold weekly spoonfeeds for the homeless in Palo Alto, and sold Crush Grams for charity with Theta. We are leading a brand-new tutoring program for East Palo Alto youth, the Drive to Learn Golf and Tutoring program. In addition guys in the House volunteer their free time serving as EPATT youth mentors and tutors, hospital workers, ESL teachers, and working with Dance Marathon, Habitat for Humanity, and Relay for Life. Perhaps most importantly, our Chapter holds the legendary Sigma Chi tradition of Derby Days. With the help of the ISC sororities we were able to raise thousands of dollars for the Children's Miracle Network and Huntsman Cancer Institute. We look forward to making Derby Days an even bigger event for the entire Stanford community this Spring.
Year after year, Sigma Chi serves as one of the pillars of the social scene at Stanford. We host many huge all-campus parties such as Cowabunga, Let's Get Physical, and Graffiti Party, as well as regular Thursday Night Penthouses. Several of Sigma Chi's social activities, including Christmas Party and sorority mixers are only for Brothers and their guests. Social events aren't limited to campus either; off-campus activities include houseboating trips to Lake Shasta, roadtrips to away Stanford football games, and ski trips to Tahoe with sororities.
