Alpha Sigma Phi
Alpha Sigma Phi (ΑΣΦ), commonly known as Alpha Sig or A Sig, is a collegiate men's secret and social fraternity with 205 currently active chapters. Founded at Yale in 1845, it is the 10th oldest greek letter fraternity in the United States.
As men of Alpha Sig, we strive for academic excellence, athletic participation, and an amazing social experience on campus. We take special pride and attention in our brotherhood and once you become a brother, you will be exposed to the strong bond of life-long friendships and networking opportunities.
The initial 15 members of the University of California Davis Colony were initiated on January 21, 2011, by Dr. Scott Gallagher, Epsilon (Ohio Wesleyan) ‘95, Steve Latour, Delta Rho ‘04 (Central Michigan), Robert Kutz, Nu ‘67 (California), past Undergraduate Grand Councilor Brian Thomas, Nu ‘08 (California), Tom Toller, Nu ‘82 (California), and undergraduates of Nu Chapter. With the assistance of their Grand Chapter Advisor Jeffrey R. Brehmer, California '85, and the Chapter Council, the group of 30 men was chartered as Zeta Gamma Chapter on November 20, 2011. The Ceremony was held at the Conference Center on campus. Notable attendees included: Grand Historian Bob Kutz, Nu '67 (California), and Steve Latour, Delta Rho '04 (Central Michigan), represented Fraternity Staff. Philip Pachtman, Zeta Gamma '10 (UC - Davis), was the Founding President.
We moved to our current official fraternity house on 340 Parkway Circle in 2014 and are neighboring with other social greek organizations such as Pi Kappa Phi, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Kappa Alpha Theta, Sigma Chi, Tau Kappa Epsilon, and Sigma Nu.
With 25 active brothers from diverse backgrounds and different parts of the world, we are proud to say that we are all guided by our core values and mission: To Better The Man.
