About Kappa Sigma: Gamma Nu
Who will you become?
Kappa Sigma is the largest fraternity in the world with over 20,000 current undergraduate members and over 200,000 alumni. With 320 chapters across the United States and Canada, the men of Kappa Sigma continue to grow the order and initiate the most men. The Gamma-Nu Chapter at Washburn University is also the largest chapter on campus.
Gamma-Nu continues to set the standard on Washburn’s campus. Over the 2016-2017 academic year, these brothers were above the All Mens’ Average GPA for their 6th consecutive year, and garnered the Greek Life award for Recruitment and Retention. During the 2017-2018 academic year, Gamma Nu won Homecoming for the 8th straight year, and Greek Week, bringing their total to 8 in the last 9 years. Gamma-Nu never stops striving for more. We continue to strive for improvement and bettering ourselves, and our accomplishments.
Kappa Sigma refuses to settle or slow down. An example would be that in the Fall of 2017, Gamma-Nu recruited and pledged 31 men, a fraternal record for Washburn University.
The Sigma Pledge Class is looking forward to raising the bar yet again. Our Goal as a chapter is not to get you through the next 4 years, it is to create a lifetime bond and a home away from home.
Our Brothers strive to be the best, and they expect the best from each other. The only question left to answer is, Who Will You Become?
