Kappa Sigma @ Georgia Southern
Kappa Sigma Recruits Record Pledge Class PDF Print E-mail
Written by Chip Howard   

Kappa Sigma recruited their largest pledge class in over ten years during the recent fall 2011 rush period. The chapter offered 44 bids with 39 being accepted, an 89% retention rate. The chapter's success can be traced to the leadership of GM Kevin Pieranunnzi, his executive committee, with special recognition to Rush Chair Tyler Marvin. Beginning in the summer brother Marvin began identifying potential rushees, introducing them to Kappa Sigma. Once the semester started the chapter picked up the pace inviting candidates to the house to meet the brothers and  begin to learn about Kappa Sigma. As the official rush week approached the chapter had targeted their top prospects, offering them the opportunity to join the Order.

A special thanks goes out to our alumni who contacted the chapter with rush recommendations, some coming from other Kappa Sigma chapters. Four of our new pledges are results of alumni rush rec's. We should also recognize the chapter's Alumnus Adviser Brian Dart. Brother Dart has a reputation nationally as a tremendous recruiter. The New England Patriots have Bill Belichick as their head coach and "Evil Genius". Kappa Sigma has Brian Dart. Brian is our head coach who works with the chapter to develop and execute the game plan.

This year we began a new tradition. As rushees accepted their bids on Thursday, pref night, they were offered a cigar and then joined the brothers on the front lawn for their first official Kappa Sigma event.

The fall 2011 pledge class brings Kappa Sigma's total membership to over 110, maintaining the chapter's status as the largest fraternity at GSU, qualifying the Kappa Zeta chapter as a "Champion Quest" chapter of Kappa Sigma.

Written by Brent Anderson   
In 1967 Georgia Southern College decided to allow social fraternities and sororities on campus. Up until that time only professional and a couple of local service fraternities were in existence. In order to be allowed to be recognized and affiliate with a national fraternity, you had to form a local fraternity. There were a couple of good friends that met and decided to pursue this. The school set an arbitrary limit of 12 groups. The groups were to petition the school and then affiliate with the national fraternity of their choice. Before the school could stop the petitions 14 groups had applied.
