About Greek Life

Welcome to Greek Life at Belmont Abbey College! We have an active Greek system with three sororities (Tau Kappa Delta, Alpha Sigma Pi, and Epsilon Sigma Alpha) and two fraternities (Sigma Alpha and Kappa Sigma). Greek organizations at the Abbey offer students the opportunity to enhance their college experience in a unique environment. Our Greek organizations plan a number of activities throughout the year, such as the annual Halloween Carnival and Christmas at the Abbey, two events which reach out to local children. Greek Life also hosts the Winter Formal, which is open to all students. Most importantly, each organization supports a philanthropy through fundraising, community service, and awareness events. Formal recruitment for the sororities fraternities are held in both the fall and spring semester.

Kappa Sigma

Aaron White

President

Kappa Sigma Fraternity’s mission is to always follow these four pillars: Scholarship, Fellowship, Leadership, and Service. Through Scholarship, each Kappa Sigma is committed to promoting academic achievement and assist each member in achieving their academic potential. Through Fellowship, the creation of lifelong friendships is a primary benefit of Fraternity membership. As Brothers, our members have an obligation to have a caring concern for the welfare of our members. Through Leadership, We teach men social skills that will benefit them throughout their lifetime. The multitude of leadership opportunities available through the Fraternity prepares members for success in their chosen careers. Kappa Sigma Fraternity should instill a sense of responsibility and integrity. The dignity of all persons shall always be respected. Through Service, Members, individually and collectively, should work toward the betterment of their campus and community and in so doing contribute to the betterment of themselves. Every Kappa Sigma Fraternity embodies these traits. President (Nick Montgomery ): nicholasamontgomery@abbey.bac.edu

Sigma Alpha

Nick Mckinnon

President

Sigma Alpha Fraternity was founded on August 26, 1995 after branching off of Pi Kappa Phi who was founded on Belmont Abbey campus on April 26, 1969.

Mission Statement: A diverse group of individuals coming together to create a virtuous and humble community.

 Our foundation is based on brotherhood, chivalry, and instilling a better sense of community involvement. Along with creating a more diverse and inclusive group of individuals, we strive to equip our brothers with the skills necessary to become contributing members in society by offering them opportunities to grow through leadership positions, mentorship from older, more experienced brothers, and campus and community involvement that can’t be offered through non-greek organizations. Our organization contributes to two different philanthropic organizations over the course of a school year. We raise funds for Habitat for Humanity and the Lymphoma Society in the Fall and Spring respectively. Our organization offers the opportunity to branch out and expand social networks through the use of our expansive alumni network in the Charlotte N.C. area and across the nation.

Alpha Sigma Phi

Hayley Russell

President

Alpha Sigma Pi Sorority “The Alpha Sigma Pi sorority was founded at Belmont Abbey College in the spring of 1988. We are a social and service sorority that is also involved in various campus wide events. The sisters are involved in the philanthropic community and are a close partner with Holy Angels. Pie a Pi is one event Alpha Sigma Pi holds in the spring where all the money raised goes to the Holy Angels. The sisters of Alpha Sigma Pi maintain a close relationship with their brothers of the Sigma Alpha fraternity. Above all else, Alpha Sigma Pi cherishes a strong tradition and an even stronger sisterhood that has contributed to keeping them active at Belmont Abbey for over two decades. We are always eager to find strong, young women to share in the memories, service and sisterhood that Alpha Sigma Pi has to offer.” President (Hayley Russell) : hayleycrussell@abbey.bac.edu

Greek Council

Members of the BAC Greek Council have established a Constitution as the governing document for all Greek Organizations. In the Summer of 2010, a complete overhaul of Greek Life was made to help guide it back to the college’s root in Benedictine ideals.     Greek Council Contact, President Justin Haggerty : Justinahaggerty@abbey.bac.edu BAC Greek Council Constitution

I’m Justin Haggerty and I’m from Front Royal Virginia. I’m a Senior here at the abbey and a Sports management major. I’m excited for Greek life this year because we have an amazing executive board. Everyone on the board is driven and hardworking and with those qualities, I know we will do some very fun events this year! Last year we grew to 80 active members total in Greek life, a record number in member growth for Belmont Abbey! I can’t wait to see how much more we will grow this year and how much we do!
