Gamma Phi Sigma "Hermanos Unidos" Fraternity, Inc.

Agghh yes, the never ending battle of Greek life. Wait there's a battle? Haha no there isn't but it sure as hell does feel like it when you hear little things about this organization or that organization. At least it's only undergrads, alumni know better.

Who is Gamma Phi Sigma you ask? Here's a little bit of history for you...

On April 16, 1992, eight Latino males came together to create a fraternity that would promote Community Service, Enhance Cultural Awareness, Excellence in academics, and above all, Brotherhood in college campuses across the western hemisphere.

Their goals were simple but precise; create a Latino fraternity which would promote and enhance the Latino culture through community service and excellence in education as well as pride in its cultural diversity. Because our many ethnic backgrounds vary through the Caribbean, Central and South America, European, and the African Diasporas, the founding Hermanos decided to build a positive image for Latino males to counter the negative stereotypes in this society. They spent years organizing and establishing the organization that would later become Gamma Phi Sigma "Hermanos Unidos" Fraternity, Incorporated. One of the premiere Community Service fraternities in the latino greek society.

Me...I pledged SP 04 at our Almight Alpha Chapter - Temple University. I was the Ace of the line and had my #2 & #3 to back be up during our journey.
Our journey started Februrary 16, 2004, 10 p.m. and ended April 10, 2004 3:40 a.m. Yep...that's 7 weeks 5 Days 5 Hours 40 minutes.
