Since the first year our chapter was founded, we have called 2412 N. Virginia Ave home. Five hundred seventy-two members have been initiated into the chapter since that time, and many of whom had the opportunity to live in this building and experience the fraternity life on a personal level.
After forty-three years of use by the chapter, it has become necessary to build ourselves a new home. The current building is structurally unstable, with creaking floors and a leaky foundation when it rains. The basement has been painted so many times that the paint is cracking. There are countless holes in the walls, and frequent problems with the plumbing and electric.
The pledging of 51 new members in the fall of 2010 made the chapter realize that it is no longer worth putting in extra money to try to repair this house; instead, efforts must be focused on building a new one. A new house would be able to hold all 108 chapter members without cramming into the small and leaky basement. It would give us the edge when it comes to recruitment every year. Most importantly, it would show the entire campus and every other Kappa Sigma chapter that Theta-Psi, when sharing a strong vision, can accomplish anything.
We need your help in this effort. The undergraduate brothers have already raised thousands of dollars in fundraising toward this project, but it cannot be done without the generous donations of our friends, family, and alumni.
