The time-tested Fraternity System in the University of the Philippines has come to be regarded as a campus institution.

Greek letters came to stand for the names of the various brotherhoods in commemoration of the noble Greek Philosophies. Foremost among these is arête, the quest for physical and intellectual excellence, emotional and spiritual serenity.

A major aspect of the Greek-lettered community, common to all fraternities, lies in the rites of passage. These herald the rebirth that marks a new brother’s entry into the family, as well as a tempering of his integrity and perseverance. It is the experience shared by every generation of members, binding them as a mother’s umbilical cord would.

Yet the same rites that endow fraternities with their unmistakable mystique have also lent over them the shroud of elitism. Coupled with arrogance, this has resulted in the contempt held by mainstream fraternity men for others outside their exclusive circle, all often leading to aggressive confrontations.

The Sigma Kappa Pi Fraternity, which stands for Samahan ng Kabataang Pilipino, being a nationalist and service-oriented brotherhood, seeks to bring down the walls of exclusivity surrounding fraternities and be one with the masses in order to serve them better. In the process, we necessarily seek to avoid the violence that accompanies vain and petty squabbling.

NATIONALISM

Taking a cue from Claro M. Recto, nationalism is “… a banner of freedom proclaiming the national interest of the people, to be promoted or safeguarded by themselves so that the fruits of their efforts and wealth derived from their God- given resources shall accrue to them and thus enable all our people to rise above poverty, and march to prosperity contentment and dignity…”


It is from this very general definition of nationalism that the fraternity wishes to express love for the country and its people. Nationalism does not limit and does not prescribe how one would show his concern for the welfare of the country and the majority of the Filipino people. Nationalism that believes that the resources of the country should be controlled and exploited only by our people and benefits resulting thereto should accrue only to them.

The fraternity espouses a kind of nationalism that does not advocate economic, political, scientific or cultural isolation. It is not anti-development in that it believes that our people deserve all the ease and comfort, good health, and access to the best products of man’s intellect and artistic spirit that the highest achievement of science and art can provide. For this reason, nationalism that believes in the economic, political, scientific and cultural interchanges with other countries but is careful and selective, always placing priority needs and welfare of the majority of the Filipino people.

SERVICE

Members of the Sigma Kappa Pi Fraternity believe that they play an important role as catalyst of change in the society. Being so, they have never been known to be closemouthed about social problem besetting our country. In order to be effective in this important role, it is therefore imperative to every member to be of service to the Filipino people.

The Sigma Kappa Pi is a fraternity committed towards serving the Filipino people specifically of marginalized sector such as the peasants, the workers, the urban poor and the indigenous people. In this light the fraternity conducts activities to provide its members with first hand experiences of the prevalent problem problems affecting these sectors. It serves to heighten the social awareness of its members and provide them with the opportunity to extend whatever support they can give to uplift the conditions of these people.

As students, members serve the studentry by trying to fulfill their role as catalysts of change by providing venues to understand issues affecting them and the country. As professionals, members serve the people they deal with everyday in their individual professions with utmost fairness.

BROTHERHOOD

What makes the Sigma Kappa Pi Fraternity different from the rest of the Greek-letter society is the bond that embraces its members. Unlike other traditional fraternities, the brotherhood being espoused within the fraternity does not prejudice against chapter, age, race, or religion. Every brother is treated with utmost respect.

The Sigma Kappa Pi Fraternity is more than an organization. It is at once both a movement and a family. Its members are brothers in every sense of the word – standing by one another’s side through time and circumstance, yet unhesitant to correct a brother straying too far from the path. The brothers are loyal, but critical just the same and ever mindful of the goals and principles of the fraternity.
