Sigma Chi

Founded in the Fall of 2004, as Kappa Pi Omega, Sigma Chi[1] is the newest Fraternity at Knox.

Despite their overwhelming need to be seen as "the good frat", in the summer of 2020 several current and former Sigma Chi members were accused of, and admitted to, sexual assault. These acts happened both during Sigma Chi events and in their chapter house over the course of the previous several years, and were common knowledge to other Sig Chi brothers. In October of 2020 Sigma Chi announced the creation "working groups" where they consulted members of the community and survivors as to the best path moving forward for the chapter.

Despite an overwhelming response that the chapter should disband, they announced in the world's worst Twitter post that they will continue to move forward as a chapter. Since then, they have continued to ignore criticism, going so far as suspending 5 new pledges who spoke up about their discomfort with the chapter's refusal to listen to literally anyone who isn't a rabid supporter of theirs. Henceforth, anyone who is a Sig Chi member in the year of our lord 2020 and beyond either lacks basic understanding/empathy, or simply does not give a shit about supporting an organization that knowingly and intentionally covered up their member's acts of abuse for years.

Because of this, Sigma Chi has officially beaten FIJI and will now be declared the "#1 Knox Frat For Rapists"

Academics[edit]

Sigma Chi has a strong emphasis on academic excellence, and offers tools to help members achieve their academic goals. Their commitment to scholastic achievement is apparent in their history. They require all of brothers to achieve a minimum GPA of 2.90. Sigma Chi posted a group GPA of 3.2, which was the highest GPA for a Greek organization on campus at the time. They support their academic ambitions by holding study sessions and offering tutoring to help fellow brothers realize their potential.

Despite how smart they are, they still can't figure out what accountability or consent is


Well-rounded lifestyle[edit]

They also strongly believe in the importance of a round lifestyle while at Knox, balancing academics with campus involvement, and taking time to relish the opportunities afforded to us by college life. It is the fusion of all these elements that makes for a complete college experience, and provides each member of the organization with a solid foundation upon which to build a successful life.

Chapter members participate in many organizations and teams on campus. One of the most strenuous activities members engage in is dodging any and all responsibility for their actions.


Parties[edit]

Sigma Chi is known for nudism, especially at the annual Anything But Clothes party, which was held at a fraternity for the first time in fall 2006. Other popular parties were the Nightshift, Mayhem, Pimpin' 'Round the World, Get Funked Up, Pajamarama, and Jock Jams. The previously mentioned parties have happened less and less in recent years.

Controversy[edit]

At the time Sigma Chi was founded (then as KPO), the Inter-Fraternity Council opposed their petition. IFC contended that the process for establishing a new fraternity had been subverted and expedited for no reason. IFC also felt that allowing a group largely consisting of first years to establish a new fraternity during Fall Term flew in the face of the long established rule that prevents established fraternities from recruiting first-year men until Winter Term. The Administration disregarded the wishes of IFC and allowed Sigma Chi to proceed.

Sigma Chi's recruitment strategy has also created some controversy. Prior to Sigma Chi's founding, the established Fraternities did not practice "informal" or year-round recruiting, as the IFC bi-laws were read to be essentially forbidding this practice. As such, the other fraternities only pledged new members at the end of the formal Rush period. However, Sigma Chi took advantage of ambiguous language in the IFC bi-laws and began recruiting and pledging members year round. As of 2007, (thanks to one of the founding brothers, Randy Geary '09 who was elected IFC President for the '07-'08 academic year) IFC was working to clarify the rules so that all fraternities would be on a level playing field regarding recruitment.

Also, they're rapists. So.
