UCLA SIGMA CHI
Delta Eta Chapter
Sigma Chi is one of the oldest and largest fraternities in North America and is honored to have an active alumni network of over 300,000 brothers. The tightly knit brotherhood maintains its ideals of friendship, justice, and learning through community service projects, alumni mentorship programs, and leadership workshops.
The Delta Eta Chapter of the Sigma Chi Fraternity at the University of California, Los Angeles has cultivated notable prestige and upheld its core values of friendship, justice, and learning since its inception in 1948, and is proud to promote the learning experience of over 120 currently active members. The Delta Eta Chapter is devoted to enhancing not only its own brotherhood, but also UCLA’s community. Sigma Chi Headquarters has consistently awarded Delta Eta the J. Dwight Peterson Significant Chapter Blue Award for its philanthropic contributions to the UCLA community and the Huntsman Cancer Foundation. Delta Eta is looking forward to a successful future for its alumni, incoming members, and the chapter itself.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be holding independent rush. Our recruitment will be held virtually through Zoom meetings, the links to which will be sent via email to the students who fill our our recruitment survey.
Every year, Sigma Chi chapters across the country compete in the Derby Challenge, raising money for the Huntsman Cancer Institute, mentioned below. At UCLA, our Derby Days is a competition between other Greek Organizations on campus in a variety of activities, from raising money to attending fundraisers around campus. The week culminates in a grand competition and celebration of Derby Days and the fight to end cancer.
HUNTSMAN CANCER INSTITUTE
Founded by John Huntsman (University of Pennsylvania 1959) , the Huntsman Cancer Institute is dedicated to finding the causes of cancer, developing new and better treatments, and preventing people from ever developing cancer. Huntsman founded HCI to focus on understanding cancer from its very beginnings and to translate this knowledge into safer and more effective treatments. HCI was chosen as Sigma Chi's preferred philanthropic partner because many Sigs and their families have been directly affected by cancer, the second-leading cause of death in the United States. The Delta Eta chapter is proud to support this great organization with our philanthropic efforts.
We take pride in making everlasting impacts on the community. Contact us to learn more.
