The Benefits of Brotherhood

The true meaning of belonging to a fraternity can only be understood through experience, but there are also lifelong benefits that outwardly shape our personal relationships, our career paths, and our roles in our individual communities. Read more about these life-changing benefits.

Holiday Greetings

I am pleased to report that the Gamma-Xi chapter of Kappa Sigma is alive and thriving and was able to successfully make it through the challenging fall covid-19 semester.  The exceptionally warm fall was a big plus as the chapter was able to spend quality time on the patio and adjoining basketball court in socially distanced manner.  The chapter took a fall sophomore pledge class of three despite the shortened semester.  Formal rush will take place after the second semester resumes, February 1st.

The campus was very much locked down from the Granville community with classes both virtual and in classroom.  Over two thousand students were on campus.  Virus testing took place throughout the semester with occasional positive individuals being quarantined.  Testing Classes ended the week prior to Thanksgiving with finals taken at home.    

Certainly, for the rest of us, it will be unforgettable, with more to come.  I sincerely hope that you were minimally affected and are keeping safe and healthy.  To the brothers of Gamma-Xi everywhere, the Board extends its warmest wishes for a happy holiday season and a safe, healthy and rewarding new year.

Meet New Board Member, Cole Poyfair '19

The Gamma-Xi House Corporation/Alumni Association Board met on November 4th in its first virtual Zoom meeting. Cole was elected as our latest and youngest member of the Board. During his time at Denison, Cole played goalie on the DU Lacrosse team and served as Pledge Trainer (twice) and as GMC his senior year. He almost single-handedly assembled all the table and benches on the new patio. Throughout his time, he contributed strong leadership to the chapter by word and example. We are pleased to add him as “new blood” to the ranks of the Board.  Cole currently resides in Denver Colorado.
