I am writing to clarify an article in the November 2, 2010 edition regarding the Kappa Sigma fraternity. For three years, the men of Kappa Sigma have been working to establish a national chapter of their organization and become registered at UAA. Last March, the Rho-Epsilon Chapter of Kappa Sigma was charter by the national organization. In September, they submitted paperwork to the Office of Student Clubs and Greek Life stating their intention to become a registered Greek organization at UAA. Last month, members of the organization presented to Greek Council about their chapter providing Greek Council an opportunity to learn about their recruitment events, their philanthropy projects, and their chapter leadership. Greek Council is in the process of writing a recommendation letter to the Dean of Students regarding their registration. Official registration of Kappa Sigma will be determined by the Dean of Students and Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.
Currently, UAA has three very active Greek organizations. These organizations enhance campus life by encouraging academic excellence, organizing service projects, promoting school spirit, and offering opportunities for leadership development. The Greek community looks forward to welcoming new organizations that help promote these ideals.
