Sigma Chi Crest

Seen in the crest is Sigma Chi's motto in Latin inscription, "In hoc signo vinces", which translates to "In this sign you conquer".


Welcome to the website for Willamette University's Delta Zeta chapter of the Sigma Chi international fraternity. We hope that you find our website informative, but if you have any questions, issues, or comments for us, please feel free to Contact Us.

Sigma Chi is one of the largest Greek-letter college fraternities, with 232 undergraduate chapters and 131 alumni chapters.  Our Delta Zeta chapter was founded when, after World War II, Willamette men returned to find their former chapter of Sigma Tau condemned.  The University offered to allow them living space in the Baxter Complex if they would associate with a nationally recognized fraternity, so they chose Sigma Chi.  Our Delta Zeta Chapter was thus chartered on January 4, 1947.
