Theta Chapter History

Founding Period

It all started with an idea, which became a plan, which became a reality! During the fall semester of 2011, a group of dedicated individuals sought to establish an organization that would provide academic, social, and personal support to current and future generations of students. These men from the University of California, Merced were convinced that Sigma Delta Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated was the ideal organization. They initially began as the F.E.W. of Merced, an interest group dedicated to making a difference in the community. On May 5, 2012, after much hard work and determination, eighteen elite gentlemen became the proud Founding Fathers of the Theta Chapter of Sigma Delta Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated, exactly twenty years after the eighteen original founding fathers established the fraternity at San Jose State University.
