The Kappa Sigma Fraternity was originally founded in Bologna, Italy in the year 1400; it was brought to America in 1869. The Kappa Sigma Fraternity has since become the largest fraternal organization in the United States, possibly in the world. Kappa Sigma exists to promote the four pillars of it’s constitution in the lives of its members: Fellowship, Leadership, Scholarship, and Service.
The Nu-Gamma Chapter at Pratt Institute was created in 1991. Since that time, Pratt has graduated more than 200 Kappa Sigma members. Alumni Brothers have gone on to teach, start their own businesses, and work for major design firms throughout the world. We have become a diverse organization, a true reflection of the life we all live as artists going to school at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.
The Nu-Gamma Chapter at Pratt Institute is proud to declare that we are among the top three Kappa Sigma chapters in the United States and Canada; there are currently over 250 chapters. Our chapter at Pratt has the highest Grade Point Average of any organization on campus, the highest amount of member participation in other organizations than any other organization, and the highest membership of any Greek organization; we strive to be leaders on and off campus. Last year alone, Nu-Gamma collectively rose over $10,000 and volunteered over 1,400 man-hours for the community.
