Sigma Chi is located at 221 Langdon St , Madison , WI 53703 . We have been on the UW campus since 1885 and at our current Langdon Street location since the 1960’s. Our current house is a mere six years old and is one of the nicest houses on campus. With over 75 members, we are steadily growing and becoming one of the biggest chapters on campus, yet we are still always looking for quality new members.
Sigma Chi is most well known for our annual week-long philanthropy event “Derby Days” in which each sorority competes in a variety of contests ranging from tug-o-war to giant twister to karaoke. Throughout the course of the week we raise thousands of dollars to be put toward The Children’s Miracle Network as well as the Kevin Cleary Foundation (a Wisconsin Sigma Chi alumni who was killed in Tower One on September 11 th , 2001 ).
Academics are also a very crucial portion of our mission. We hold each of our members to academic standards and expect that everyone performs to the best of his ability. With this, however, comes large rewards. We have a very strong alumni base who offer thousands of dollars in scholarships each year for overall achievement, most improved, highest new member GPA, and others. These awards serve as a strong motivator for many of our members.
Last, but certainly not least, we are a social fraternity. We have mastered the art of working hard and playing hard. You will often times see groups of 15 to 20 guys from our house out on the town together on a Friday night (or even a Tuesday every now and then). However, the best example of this social aspect is on a cool Saturday morning in October when the front porch of 221 Langdon is filled with hundreds of Badger football fans clad in red and awaiting the kickoff of yet another Badger victory.
