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.
