• Sigma Chi is a national college fraternity with active chapters on more than 240 college campuses and an additional 152 alumni chapters. The Hilton Head Sigma Chi Alumni Chapter is looking for Lowcountry Sigs who we have not yet found, in hopes they will join the Chapter.   

Four years ago, Sigma Chi alumni on Hilton Head Island, in Bluffton and in surrounding communities came together to form the Hilton Head Sigma Chi Alumni Chapter, which has now grown to more than 50 members. The group meets monthly throughout the year for lunch at a local restaurant, and hosts coed social events such as oyster roasts or dinner cruises and golf tournaments.

Since its founding in 1855 on the campus of Miami University (Ohio), there are more than 350,000 initiates to Sigma Chi.

Sigma Chi strives to develop men of good character, students of fair ability, with ambitious purposes, a congenial disposition, possessed of good morals, having a high sense of honor and a deep sense of personal responsibility.
