Our organization's three core values are friendship, justice, and learning
Our core values correspond and build upon the minimum standards with which we hold each other accountable: men of good character, students or fair ability, a congenial disposition, with ambitious purposes, possessed of good morals, having a high sense of honor, and a deep sense of personal responsibility.
Furthermore, in order that we become complete well rounded men we assign value to our lives in the order of family, school, and then Sigma Chi. With out our family we wouldn't have school, and without school, we wouldn't have Sigma Chi.
So, it is important that we assess our lives as individual students with different temperaments, talents, and convictions. The principal of individuality will never be stripped of any man in our organization; it is what allows us to grow as a collective group.
We share many more values and ideals that the men of this fraternity hold dear to our hearts; these ideals are nothing short of beautiful in word and purpose, but will not be shared for purposes of ritualistic secrecy extending to only members of the Sigma Chi Fraternity.
