Murray State University was founded as a normal school in 1922; the first class in 1926 had 12 graduates. It became a general college in 1948 and a state university in 1966. The Alpha Sigma Phi Colony at Murray State was developed by Todd Harris, UCLA '92, with an initial pledging of eight men on November 23, 1993. The interest group was announced on April 19, 1994. The group received InterFraternity Council recognition on January 31, 1994 and grew to 43 members.

Officers of the interest group were --  Michael Crisp, President; Jason Barnett, Vice President; Monti Collins, Treasurer; Ben Johnson, Secretary; Bob Hayes, Corresponding Secretary and Sgt. at Arms; Charlie Wright, Editor; Jody Yonts, Marshal.  

The Chapter chartered on October 8, 1994.
