The Kappa Sigma Chapter at Muskingum University has been awarded a Kappa Sigma Founders’ Award of Chapter Excellence as one of the fraternity’s top Chapters in North America for the second consecutive year.

The Founders Award of Chapter Excellence (FACE) is the benchmark award in the Kappa Sigma Fraternity, recognizing outstanding Chapter management, achievement, and program development in all areas of operation. Only 29 chapters of our 291 Chapters and Colonies, received the FACE award within Kappa Sigma in 2022.

“Kappa Sigma is North America’s largest college social fraternity. We pledge more men and have more undergraduate members than any other fraternity, and we give more time in community service and more money to charitable causes than any other fraternity. Winning a Founders’ Award of Chapter Excellence means that our chapter at Muskingum University is not just one of the best chapters in Kappa Sigma, but is one of the best fraternity chapters on any college campus in North America,” said Worthy Grand Master Adam J. Merillat, president of Kappa Sigma’s international board of directors.

Kappa Sigma’s Theta-Omicron Chapter at Muskingum University and its 39 members had the following achievements during its award-winning 2021-2022 academic year:

  • The Chapter’s GPA was above Muskingum University All Men’s GPA for both semesters in 2021.
  • The Chapter is the largest fraternity on the Muskingum University campus.
  • The Chapter engaged in more than 4,400 hours of community service.
  • The Chapter raised more than $39,000 for charitable causes.
  • The Chapter raised more than $7,500 for the Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Campaign, which is committed to supporting ongoing care for our military veterans and their families. More information is available at
  • The Chapter raised more than $13,000 for its Chapter Scholarship Fund within the Kappa Sigma Endowment Fund, which provides scholarships to chapter members based upon academic achievement, campus involvement, and leadership within the Kappa Sigma Fraternity.

Congratulations to all!
