Fellowship. Leadership. Scholarship. Service.
The Gamma-Delta chapter of Kappa Sigma welcomes you to our online home.
Originally established in 1904 and rechartered on February 8, 2014, Gamma-Delta is redefining what it means to be Greek at UMass Amherst. We are one of the largest fraternities on campus. The goal of each Kappa Sigma brother is to achieve the total development of a better man: academically, culturally, civically, and as a successful leader and role model to others. We provide each other with strong scholarship support, self-improvement opportunities, and an active social life.

On April 25th at 8pm Kappa Sigma will be facing Pi Kappa Alpha in a charity hockey game at the Mullins Center Community Rink. Both fraternities are excited for the opportunity to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project and the Home Base Program through Ice Stars for Wounded Warriors. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $10. Tickets will be $5 if purchased beforehand at the location found on the flier below. Help us raise money for these awesome organizations while also enjoying this entertaining game!
The mission of Ice Stars for Wounded Warriors is to promote awareness and raise funds for our military men and women who return home suffering from the “Invisible Wounds” of Post-Traumatic Stress and/or Traumatic Brain Injury through a series of fundraisers and community-building events concentrated in western Massachusetts.
A donation of any size is greatly appreciated. Additionally, if you want to make a donation in honor of a member of the military that name will be displayed front and center at our event (http://www.gofundme.com/LaceUp-Salute)

Brothers Rakoski, Purdue, Ward, McQuate and Chisholm all have been working with the Amherst Fire Department through a section comprised of student volunteers. Volunteers in this department are trained in many aspects that allow them to be well prepared for emergencies in the town of Amherst. These students respond to all types of emergencies ranging from a cat stuck in a tree to a burning building in downtown Amherst. Our brothers must commit to many 24 hour shifts each week and have provided over 2,000 hours of service to the town of Amherst and the University of Massachusetts. Thank you brothers Rakoski, Purdue, Ward, McQuate and Chisholm.
