Kappa Sigma at UNL is a non-residential fraternity. That means that members, including freshman, live in dorms or off-campus in apartments and houses. It also means that our members are exposed to more other students and can more easily maintain their relationships with high school friends who are not members.
Unlike other non-residential fraternities at UNL, Kappa Sigmas do have their own fraternity house. "The Firehouse", as it is known, is located directly East of the UNL City Campus, at 2300 O Street. The Firehouse is a historic fire station built in the 1920's, which has been renovated to include a main floor lounge and meeting area, a catering kitchen, a conference room, plenty of quiet study space, a locker room, and parking area which serves as a back yard barbecue area and basketball court. It's a great place for members to meet, study, entertain, and hang out.
Kappa Sigma is a social fraternity that was founded in 1869 at the University of Virginia, and is today the largest of men's college fraternities. There are 320 chapters and colonies located on college campuses throughout the United States and Canada, with more than 200,000 living members, including 20,000 college undergraduates.
Our chapter, Alpha-Psi, is one of the oldest fraternity chapters in America. It was started at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1897. There are hundreds on alumni from the Alpha-Psi chapter, including well-known professionals, businessmen, and politicians.
