UCSB Chartering

Designation: Kappa Eta

Chartering Date: January 25, 2014

Installed by: Regent Charlie Eitel (Oklahoma State)

Campus Snapshot: The UC Santa Barbara campus is bordered on three sides by the Pacific Ocean, has miles of coastline, its own lagoon, and a rocky extension, known as Campus Point. Founded in 1909, the university is a part of the University of California system and according to U.S. News and World Report it is one of the top 15 public universities in the United States. The Greek community has over 8% of the 19,000 undergraduate population.

Chapter Profile: The Kappa Eta Chapter, number 214, was originally founded in 1983 as one of the earliest fraternities founded at UCSB. In 2008, the chapter was closed. Since refounding, the colony consistently worked to bring pride and dedication to everything they were involved in, including community service, philanthropic events, intramurals, scholarship, and brotherhood.

On January 25, 2014, the Kappa Eta Chapter was rechartered, initiating 31 knights as refounding fathers with a total manpower of 75 after the most recent recruitment. The chartering was a successful event with nearly 175 people in attendance, including some of the original founding fathers from 1983. Also in attendance were Regent Charlie Eitel, Past Regent and Chairman of the Sigma Nu Educational Foundation Joe Gilman, and Grand Historian Bob McCully.

The Kappa Eta Chapter would like to recognize Robert Moody and the Kappa Eta Alumni Advisory Board for pledging their support to Sigma Nu at UC Santa Barbara. The chapter would also like to give a very special thanks to the rest of the alumni, parents, university staff and advisors, the Sigma Nu staff, as well as Regent Charlie Eitel and the High Council for helping to make the Kappa Eta rechartering a success.
