Sigma Phi Delta
Beta-Omicron Chapter • University of Missouri
Sigma Phi Delta is an international engineering fraternity founded at the University of Southern California in 1924. The Beta-Omicron chapter of SigPhi chartered at Mizzou in December of 2014 with 31 members. It has since grown to 57 active members of like-minded engineering students seeking to better themselves and the Engineering profession. As a fraternity we put great emphasis on a safe balance of work and play.
You truly aren't experiencing college if your only friends are your textbooks. Sigma Phi Delta members are anything but the "typical" engineer. While we take the same classes, help each other out with homework, and study together, we also know how to have a good time after the hard work is finished. Some of the social aspects of our fraternity include hosting a formal and semi-formal, going on a yearly float trip over the summer, and tailgating Mizzou football games; Go Tigers!
While we like to have fun, we all recognize the importance of receiving a fulfilling experience in the College of Engineering that is academically rewarding and beneficial to your future career.
Some of the Social and Professional areas we focus on are:
Dr. Roger C. Fales is an esteemed professor in the mechanical engineering department and serves as the fraternity's Faculty Adviser. Dr. Fales attends every meeting and provides valuable insight at any crossroad we approach. In Spring 2015 and 2017, Sigma Phi Delta and Alpha Omega Epsilon were chosen to host the Engineering Career Fair, offering our members an exclusive opportunity to interact with employers. Due to the past sponsorship, Sigma Phi Delta has a strong relationship with many College of Engineering staff.
Sigma Phi Delta is both a social and professional fraternity - we know how to have a good time, but we also know how to get work done. Rush is a great opportunity to see if our fraternity's culture is a good fit for you. The ideal rushee is someone who strives to be a gentleman, is driven to overcome his weaknesses, and of course, enjoys having fun!
Our fraternity recently chartered here at Mizzou as the Beta-Omicron Chapter of Sigma Phi Delta and became a member of Mizzou’s IFC. We have been a major part of the College of Engineering. Our active members and alumni have participated in many internships, co-ops, research, and study abroad opportunities. These opportunities have led to several full time positions at companies with high profile names such as NASA, Lexmark, Black and Veatch, Epic, Monsanto, True Manufacturing, and many more.
Sigma Phi Delta proudly boasts 57 active brothers for the Spring 2018 semester.
