The Future of Kappa Sigma at UCF

On July 10, 2010, several undergraduate and alumni brothers of the former Lambda Epsilon chapter trekked to New Orleans, Louisiana to attend the 2010 Kappa Sigma Leadership Conference. In addition to attending several workshops designed to improve both the men and the ideals set forth by the Kappa Sigma Fraternity, the brothers of Lambda Epsilon sought an audience with the Supreme Executive Committee to appeal the loss of the Lambda Epsilon charter.

The number of undergraduate brothers had already been cut to 27, and the remaining brothers had raised enough money to repay both the Kappa Sigma Fraternity and the Lambda Epsilon Charitable Fund, completely clearing their past due balance.

The results of the meeting were swift, direct, and actionable. Although the charter was not returned, the SEC decided, upon confirmation that those undergraduate brothers that remain in good standing are worthy to wear the Star and Crescant, the oldest fraternity on campus would return as a colony at the University of Central Florida. Upon completion of the requirements set forth in the Kappa Sigma Fraternity Colony Development Program, the Lambda Epsilon chapter would obtain a new charter along with the return of the original charter.

The undergraduate brothers are currently preparing to implement their plan of action to achieve colony status. The alumni have begun to implement the guidelines set forth in the Alumni Plan of Action.

More information will be released regarding the status of the Lambda Epsilon chapter as it unfolds.
