Founded in 2022 by the Delta Eta Housing Association and the Bruin Sig Foundation, the Delta Eta Hall of Fame honors Sigma Chi Brothers for outstanding lifetime achievements and service to the Chapter and the community.

Sigma Chi is built on a commitment to personal excellence and service to others. Our distinguished alumni have furthered these goals throughout our history, as have the Brothers of the Delta Eta Chapter since its founding in 1947.

Each inductee to the Delta Eta Hall of Fame has—in his own field and his own ways—contributed his considerable time and talent in the service of others. Each has brought honor to our Fraternity.

Congratulations to those who have been inducted into the Delta Eta Hall of Fame, and thank you for all that you do for Sigma Chi! Your portrait, name, and biography will now be displayed prominently on a plaque in the Chapter house.
