About the Kappa Delta Chapter
Purpose : To Build Better Men.
The mission of the Kappa Delta Chapter of Delta Sigma Phi at Virginia Tech is to build better men who seek integrity and excellence in their lives and in those around them, by fostering an environment where college men can grow and develop to reach one's true potential through the reciprocal bonds of genuine brotherhood and lifelong friendships, so that ultimately these men are more able to seize all opportunities and have a positive impact on family and society.
- Integrity - unified whole, soundness, moral, and ethical character, honesty, following through, and living your values in words and actions.
- Personal growth and development - We realize that life is a process and much of what confronts us is out of our control.Â Therefore, we view the betterment of ourselves as our best way to achieve our life goals and have a positive influence on those around us. As our motto states, Challenging each man to a greater good enforces this commitment to personal growth in the context of brotherhood.
- Brotherhood - humans are relational beings and we value the brotherhood of man. This means our relationships with each other and also the relationships we have with all our family and friends. We can best grow into who we are when surrounded by those who love and care for one another.
- Excellence - We are always striving for more; searching for the highest quality and virtue. Mediocrity is the enemy of excellence. Excellence also means an object is fulfilling the purpose for which it was created.
- Service - Our motto at Virginia Tech is, Ut Prosim That I May Serve. Service goes beyond self and focuses on the needs of others. Ultimately, we only get satisfaction and fulfillment when we help others. Service is not only a selfless disposition of the mind, but demonstrated as an action toward others.
In 1997, 24 men at Virginia Tech looked around at the fraternities on campus and each saw the strengths of brotherhood, the countless social possibilities, and the many other benefits that stem from Greek Organizations. However, among the many organizations on campus, these men could not find an organization that fell in line with their common principles. Their solution was not an easy one--they knew that starting a fraternity at Virginia Tech would be a struggle, but this fact did not deter these men.
They researched many organizations and when they came across Delta Sigma Phi, they realized they found an organization that was not a stretch of their goals or morals, but a direct reflection of their own moral code of conduct. A strong brotherhood, putting emphasis on scholarship, social and athletic opportunities, and which gave back through service to the community and to Virginia Tech, are what these men formed. From 1997 to 1998 they nearly doubled in size and in 1999, less than 5 years after colonizing, they were recognized as an official chapter of Delta Sigma Phi. Less than two years after colonization, we were chartered nationally.
Today, Delta Sigs can be found actively participating in every part of university life at Virginia Tech. Our brothers are leaders in the student government, athletes on sports teams, and scholars who excel in the classroom.

The chapter house is located just off of Main Street in the heart of downtown Blacksburg. Each year eleven brothers get the chance to live in the house and experience everyday one of the best things Delta Sig has to offer, brotherhood. In addition to serving as a home to eleven brothers the house is a meeting point for the fraternity and friends alike. Football parties, March Madness, brotherhood events, and cookouts are common point and just a few of the things that go on at the well known "Delta Sig house".
