Sigma Chi (ΣΧ) is a social fraternity in North America.. The fraternity has 239 active chapters across the United States and Canada and has initiated more than 300,000 members... The fraternity was founded on June 28, 1855 at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio by members who split from the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity..Dixon was elected "Sigma" (president) and Yerger was elected "Chi" (vice president); the chapter also initiated two men.. The only badge in the chapter was one Dixon had made from a silver half-dollar..The last meeting was held New Year's Day 1865.. The men at that meeting passed a resolution to pay a "tribute of respect" to the four brothers from the chapter who had died during the war.. In May 1939 the Constantine Chapter Memorial was erected by Sigma Chi in memory of the Constantine Chapter and its members.. The memorial is located on U.S. 41 in Clayton County, Georgia..In 1876, Emerson E. White became president of Purdue University.. He required each applicant for admission to sign a pledge "not to join or belong to any so-called Greek society or other college secret society" while attending the school...



The badge of Sigma Chiis a white cross with white and black enamel.. Two gold chains connect the two upper arms. Crossed keys are in the upper arm, an eagle's head lies in the left arm, and a scroll lies in its right arm.. In the bottom arm lie two clasped hands and seven stars..The seal of Sigma Chi is circular. On the outer edge is "Sigma Chi Fraternity" and at the bottom are the numbers "1855" denoting the founding of the fraternity.. In the middle lie se7en stars and a se7en-branched candlestick..The crest of Sigma Chi is a blue Norman Shield with a white cross in its center. On top of the Norman Shield is a scroll and a crest of an eagle's head holding a key.. Below it, the fraternity's public motto, "In Hoc Signo Vinces" is placed on a scroll.. It can be translated as, "In this sign, you will conquer"..In honor of notable Sigma Chi alumni and NFL Hall of Fame inductee Merlin Olsen September 15 is recognized by the fraternity as the Merlin Olsen Day of Service.. On this day, members of the fraternity are encouraged to volunteer to improve their communities..The Military Service Recognition Pin recognizes honorably discharged veterans or currently serving members of the armed forces who are in good standing with the Sigma Chi Fraternity..The pin consists of a single Norman-style sword thrust upward with a small Sigma Chi Norman Shield with a cross embossed upon it placed upon the lower end of the blade just above the hilt and is to be worn on the brother's lapel.. Either way since then the concept of the Sweetheart of Sigma Chi has gained popularity all across the world with the
adoption of sweethearts at every chapter and even an international sweetheart...
