What We Do
The Kappa-Mu Chapter of Kappa Sigma works hard to excel as one of the top chapters nationally and at TTU. Kappa-Mu is the largest single men's fraternity chapter at Tennessee Tech. The chapter is active and involved on campus and at the national level. In 2013, Kappa Sigma and ADPi combined forces to win TTU Homecoming. Over the 2014-2015 school year, the Kappa-Mu Chapter donated over 4000 hours and over $10,000 dollars to charitable causes.
Four Pillars of Kappa Sigma
Fellowship within the Kappa-Mu chapter is the foundation upon which our successes are built. The members are true brothers who can rely on each other for friendship and support. The house at 525 North Walnut becomes a true home away from home in Cookeville. The brothers of this chapter are very likely to become lifelong friends – not only are they there for you during college but throughout life. The bond that is formed between brothers is hard to describe but is truly a gift to those who become brothers.
Leadership development is one area in which membership in Kappa Sigma can greatly enhance the college experience. At Kappa-Mu there are many opportunities to be involved in leadership positions. The seven member executive committee also administers a committee system that handles all aspects of chapter operations. Many brothers also serve as representatives to the Interfraternity Council and often Kappa-Mu Brothers are involved on the IFC executive council. These opportunities to lead are critical for gaining valuable experience.
Scholarship is a high priority in Kappa Sigma. The Brothers of Kappa-Mu Chapter are committed to performing at a high level academically. Three local scholarships administered by the Alumni Association and the national Scholarship/Leadership Awards reward and support brothers who achieve at a high level. The chapter consistently has a significant number of brothers on the dean’s list and most semesters a number of brothers have 4.0 gpas. Brothers support each other academically and often study and work together to succeed.
Service is the foundation for a well rounded member of the community. Nationally, Kappa Sigma is the leading philanthropic donor in dollars and hours in the college greek world. Kappa-Mu chapter is active in several service projects including the annual South Seas philanthropy week, a Tennessee Marine Family 5K, adopt-a-highway, and active participation in a number of other greek organization philanthropies. Developing brothers who are committed to giving back and assisting their communities is essential as a Kappa Sigma.
