Major community service, chapter and philanthropy events

Earthball is the result of tireless fundraising and philanthropy on behalf of the brothers of Delta Sig.
National and Chapter History:
Delta Sigma Phi was formed at a time when Jewish and Christian fraternities barred entrance to members based on their religious affiliation. Founded on December 10, 1899, Delta Sigma Phi sought to challenge this convention and establish an organization predicated on the universal brotherhood of men regardless of personal beliefs. During this time, the Delta Sigma Phi Foundation was also incorporated aimed at developing young men with leadership initiatives and educational programs. Since then Delta Sigma Phi has rapidly expanded to over 100 chapters nationwide with over 100,000 initiated brothers.
Delta Sigma Phi was chartered at University of Kentucky on April 13, 1996. Since then it has produced two E. Allen James Outstanding Undergraduate Award and as a chapter has earned nine Pyramids of Excellence (highest chapter honor). The Theta Mu chapter routinely ranks highest nationally in terms of grades, recruitment, and service.
For more than a century, Delta Sigma Phi has helped young men become better leaders and better citizens. Brotherhood is a lifetime commitment to living our core values: Culture, Harmony, and Friendship. Our intention is not merely to develop a strong fraternity, but in addition, to challenge our members to make a difference in their communities and their world. It is this legacy and commitment that has led to the organization's success over these many years.
