Statement on SAE
(Sigma Alpha Epsilon)
The University of New Mexico and the Headquarters of Sigma Alpha Epsilon do not recognize a chapter of SAE at UNM.

Statement on Hazing
UNM Fraternity and Sorority members take pride in being part of a community in which all members treat each other with respect. Activities which detract from the goal of fostering the personal and intellectual development of our students have no place in our community or campus. Hazing in any form by any student in the process of joining an organization poses a serious threat to the health and safety of our students and will not be tolerated.

Chapter Bio:
Kappa Sigma has a long, rich history at the University of New Mexico, beginning in 1917 with the initial branching of our beloved Fraternity into the Albuquerque Main Campus. Since then, the Delta Zeta Chapter has seen many of its undergraduate members graduate and become successful contributors to both the state, and the nation abroad. Currently, Delta Zeta is in the process of re-colonizing, beginning a new adventure in high hopes of soon becoming the pride of this University, and reclaiming our spot on campus. Since colonization in February of 2010, Delta Zeta has grown to 25 Founding Fathers, and is closing in on our goal to gain a Charter, and soon afterwards a new Kappa Sigma Fraternity house. As the men of Kappa Sigma grow and maximize our potential in the upcoming 2011-2012 school year, we will strive to live by the Four Pillars laid forth by the Founders of our Brotherhood; Leadership, Scholarship, Fellowship and Service. The history of the Delta Zeta Chapter continues to be made daily, leaving an opportunity for undergraduates to leave both legacy, and tradition on the University of New Mexico campus that will remain for generations of Brothers to come.

Chapter Bio: “Men join fraternities. Leaders of men join Sigma Chi.” -John Wayne

The Sigma Chi fraternity was founded on the principles of friendship, justice and learning. Born out of strife and aimed at bringing strength of values to young men, Sigma Chi has long been the preeminent leadership-based fraternity in the nation. Founded in 1855 at Miami University, we are one of the oldest and largest international fraternities in the world.

The Beta Xi Chapter of Sigma Chi is committed to providing the best possible experience and opportunities for its members. Founded in 1916, we have made for ourselves a long, rich history at UNM, striving to bring our values to the forefront of the student body, and establishing ourselves as leaders, both on campus and in the community. With this goal always in mind, we seek potential members by what we call the Jordan Standard. We admit no man to membership who is not believed to be:

  • A man of good character; 
  • A student 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
Sigma Chi, like most other fraternities, provides all the usual benefits of fraternity life. We have the largest fraternity property on campus, participate in intramural athletics, and help one another with studies. Additionally, due to our long-established presence on campus, we have one of the largest networks of alumni of any fraternity in New Mexico, which can ultimately lead to career advice, business contacts, and job placements. Prominent Beta Xi Chapter alumni in the Albuquerque area include Brothers Tom Popejoy, Bernie Butterfield, UNM Regents Raymond Sanchez and Don Chalmers, and past UNM Vice-President Marvin Johnson. We hope you consider joining our brotherhood and being part of the Sigma Chi legacy. We are confident that we can help make your UNM experience a more meaningful one. No matter what it is that you’re looking for, you’ll find it here, and we’ll help you find it in yourself.
