Join the Brotherhood
The more informed and educated men are, the more they can focus on positioning themselves to have a greater community impact.
The Greek fraternal tradition in American colleges and the nation itself are nearly the same age. Shortly after the ratification of the Declaration of Independence, the society of Phi Beta Kappa was founded on December 5, 1776 at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. It had all the characteristics and brotherhood, a motto, a badge and the background of high idealism. From this beginning sprang our present system of social and professional fraternities and sororities, honor and recognition societies which together have initiated nearly seven million members.
Sigma Phi Rho was chartered by 13 brothers from Wagner College in the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and seventy-nine for the purpose of developing a lasting brotherhood. Sigma Phi Rho believes that the development of strong character and good moral judgment is essential in the type of bulwark democracy needs to march ever forward. The purpose of this fraternity is to serve its school and aid in its development and growth. Sigma Phi Rho is highly supportive of other students’ organizations.
Our fraternity continually seeks involvement in community activities that augment the collegiate experience crucial to the growth of men academically, spiritually and professionally, thereby solidifying the relevance between the school and the neighboring community.
Sigma Phi Rho Fraternity, Inc. has two interest groups: The Prophets for first semester freshman and The Rhoman Court for high school students also there is a Sweetheart Court for the undergraduate chapters and colonies which goes under the name of The Rhoses. Sigma Phi Rho Fraternity, Inc. originally accepted four major organizational goals: the continual building of the concept of lasting brotherhood, fulfillment of developing strong character and good moral judgment, service to the community and high academic achievement. Since our inception thirty years ago we have expanded our goals to include developing national structures, systems, and mentors as resources to mature men spiritually and professionally. Toward these goals this organization is dedicated.
In the years to come, Sigma Phi Rho Fraternity, Inc. plans to continue to translate goals expressed at the founding and periodically reaffirm throughout our existence into programs, projects and activities i.e. Regional Benefits to raise awareness for the fight against legislative racial injustice in Africa, to finding a cure of Aids, and pursuit of supporting local education efforts to achieve the goal of 1 million African Americans enrolled in colleges and universities in the USA. These national initiatives have contemporary value as well as enduring significance to the unique history of Sigma Phi Rho Fraternity, Inc.
