Founding Chapter History

Founding Period

In the fall of 1991, Francisco Huerta and Rogelio Bolaños had the idea of creating a new organization to better serve the needs of Latino students at SJSU. They recruited fellow students, many of whom were friends, and worked tirelessly for the next several months.

On May 5, 1992, Sigma Delta Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and its eighteen founding fathers were officially recognized.
