Omicron-Pi has a roll of just over 240 brothers; as one of the youngest fraternities at Carleton University, we have recruited fall and winter classes every year since 2005 allowing us to grow our brotherhood consistently year after year. Our members are leaders and hold membership in many campus organizations as well as organizations across the country.
Our chapter prides itself on being the largest and strongest fraternity in Ottawa. As such, joining Kappa Sigma means gaining one of the strongest support groups a University freshman can ask for. Advice, guidance, and opportunities for personal growth are all at your very fingertips.
THE OMICRON-PI CHAPTER
Our Chapter here at Carleton (Omicron-Pi), was founded in 2007. We are one of the largest, most active, and dominant organizations on campus and also the top Canadian Chapter for our Fraternity. From the social scene, to our academics, to our community service, to campus leadership, our chapter is the strongest organizations on campus.
We are devoted to finding men who will enhance and improve our brotherhood; we are also an organization that aims to build better men. If you are committed to participating in activities for this benefit, we are looking for you!
Modern day Kappa Sigma was founded one chilly evening in the fall of 1869, as five students attending the University of Virginia in Charlottesville gathered in the room of William Grigsby McCormick, at 46 East Lawn, and planted the seed of Brotherhood. For many weeks the bonds of friendship had drawn these five together; now the need became clear for a formal structure to contain their feelings. Thus, not only did the Founders formalize their friendship, but they also created a fraternity steeped in the traditions of the past and dedicated to the Pursuit of Learning. The new brothers recorded their bond in a Constitution and in an Oath that set forth the ideals and principles to all Kappa Sigmas today.
