Founded at Yale University in 1845, a brotherhood was developed with strong ties of friendship. One that has endured for 175 years -- Alpha Sigma Phi.
The Fraternity was founded upon the values of character. These Values, once secret but made public in 2005, are what make Alpha Sigma Phi unique. These Values are call each member to better themselves through their actions and words.
He is charitable in the broadest sense of the word. A man who strives for a life of charity and service is more patient, kinder, and more forgiving of the flaws of others. A charitable man sacrifices of himself to help others and seeks no recognition in return. He is humble, reverent, and generous.
He consistently strives for purity of mind, body, and soul. The man who is pure of thought, word, and deed does not shrink from adversity or lofty goals. There is no self-pity, rationalizations, or apologies. He is moral and a gentleman in the finest sense of the word.
He lives a life of personal integrity, thereby accruing honor. An honorable man lives up to promises made to others and to himself. A man of honor is not vain, and is willing to endure scorn or ostracism rather than conform to the pressures of peers, superiors, or the fashion of the day. He is ethical, honest, and trustworthy.
He loves his country, remaining consistently engaged in its affairs. He seeks to know his country and to pass that knowledge on to others. He is devoted to the principles of personal freedom, justice, and civic responsibility embedded in the U.S. Constitution that have made our country. He is loyal, proud, and humble.
Thus the purpose of Alpha Sigma Phi is to Better the Man through the creation and perpetuation of brotherhood founded upon these values.
