Introduction

Sigma Delta Alpha (ΣΔΑ) is a college fraternity dedicated to serving its community and fostering excellence and loyalty amongst brothers. Since its establishment at San Jose State University on May 5, 1992, our organization has expanded to eight other campuses across California and Nevada.

Although our members are predominantly Latino, all interested college men who aspire to make a positive impact in their communities and who demonstrate a strong commitment to our purposes are encouraged to apply. We are interested in the quality of a man's character, not the color of his skin.
