Beta-Psi Chapter at the University of Washington

Welcome To Kappa Sigma Fraternity

Kappa Sigma is the largest college social fraternity in the world with more than 200,000 living members, including over 20,000 undergraduates and 320 chapters and colonies located throughout the United States and Canada. Founded in 1869 at the University of Virginia, Kappa Sigma International Headquarters is based in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Our Beginning

The Beta-Psi Chapter (Kappa Sigma UW) was founded at the University of Washington, Seattle, in 1903. 

From 1903-2014, The Chapter has had many prominent alumni, including three who won Kappa Sigmas' prestigious John G. Tower Award. 

In 2014, the Kappa Sigma UW Fraternity set out to re-colonize the Beta-Psi Chapter with a goal to recruit men who mirror the National Standard of the Fraternity and want to make a direct impact. 

This goal was achieved in 2016 with the re-charting of the Beta-Psi Chapter. Since 2014, the Chapter has won multiple awards including three Founders' Award of Chapter Excellence, two Brother of the Year Awards, along with many others. 

The Beta-Psi Chapter continues to recruit men who will represent the Fraternity with honor and dignity, all while contributing to the Fraternity and community.

The Beta-Psi Chapter

Throughout our time here at the University of Washington since our founding in 1903, we have continued to strive for excellence competing with other UW Fraternities through excelling in the four pillars that represent Kappa Sigma; Fellowship, Leadership, Scholarship, and Service. From the brotherhood, to academics, to the social scene, to community service, to campus involvement, we pride ourselves on being one of the most active organizations on campus.
