Alpha-Nu Chapter History  

  • The Alpha-Nu Chapter of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity was founded on January 27, 1894 at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina. At that time, Wofford was an all-male liberal arts college with about 500 students.

  • The Alpha Nu Chapter of Kappa Sigma proudly holds the oldest original charter of any chapter in the state of South Carolina.

  • The Charter members of the Chapter are Fred Anson Cummings, John Caswell Roper, Thomas McTyeire Raysor, Nathaniel Moss Salley, and Benjamin Wofford Wait. The Alpha-Nu Chapter is the 50th of nearly 300 Kappa Sigma Chapters, and has never gone inactive throughout its prestigious history.
