Valpo Phi Sigs are part of a rich history going back to the year 1873 when Phi Sigma Kappa was originally founded.  Originally here on campus; however, our fraternity was known as Phi Sigma Epsilon.  In 1985, nationally the two fraternities merged to create the Phi Sigs we know today.  We are proud of our history and invite you to come down to the house to learn more about us.
