In 1855, seven young men dedicated to the principles of friendship, justice and learning stood on the threshold of greatness when they declared their allegiance to these ideals¬¬–and to each other. These young men, who met in a second-floor room of a building near Oxford’s public square on High Street – now know as the birth place of Sigma Chi – could not possibly have imagined the scope of the institution.


A small amount of bricks were recently removed from where the Founders held many of the earlier organizational meetings of Sigma Chi. Now YOU CAN OWN a slice of the room in which Runkle and Lockwood designed the Sigma Chi badge.
