Kappa Sigma Chapter Wins Prestigious National Award

By Zoee Simmons

The Kappa Sigma chapter at Cal State San Marcos has been named one of the top chapters in the nation. It received the Founders' Award of Chapter Excellence (FACE) for its dedicated work in recruitment, service, philanthropy, scholarship and ritual education. 

Only 31 out of 290 chapters and colonies received the FACE award within Kappa Sigma in 2023.

Kappa Sigma’s Tau-Omicron chapter showed outstanding chapter management, achievement and program development during the past academic year. Its achievements included performing more than 1,600 hours of community service, raising more than $21,000 for charitable causes and having a chapter GPA above the “All Men’s Average GPA.”

“Kappa Sigma is the largest college social fraternity in North America,” Burton R. Trembly, the new president of Kappa Sigma’s International Board of Directors, said in a statement. “We pledge more men, on more campuses, and have more undergraduate members than any other fraternity. We support our communities by giving more time to community service and more money to charitable causes than any other fraternity. Winning a Founders’ Award of Chapter Excellence means that our chapter at California State University San Marcos is not just one of the best chapters in Kappa Sigma, but is one of the top fraternity chapters on any college campus in North America.”
