About Alpha Sigma Phi

Alpha Sigma Phi was founded on December 6, 1845 by three men with a purpose at Yale University. That purpose was “To Better The Man.” Each year Alpha Sigma Phi recruits new men with the goal of helping them reach the fullness of potential using its five virtues: Purity, Honor, Charity, Silence, and Patriotism. Those who join Alpha Sigma Phi will not only be starting a new fraternity at SJSU and build it, but they’ll also find not just friends, but brothers for life. Its members vehemently endeavor to help each other grow and mature not just in academics but in every possible sense.
