Chapter History

Alpha Sigma Phi started its legacy at the University of South Florida in the fall of 2012 when Assistant Director of Expansion, Geoff McDonald, Hartwick '05, began recruitment efforts. The first Pledge Ceremony occurred in September of 2012 and the Initiation Ceremony was held in the spring of 2013. The Founding Fathers of the South Florida Colony were highly involved on campus, serving as Orientation Leaders, Residence Hall Directors and University Ambassadors. 

After recruiting 29 men in the fall of 2013, the South Florida Colony petitioned the Grand Council to charter and the petition unanimously approved. The Chartering Ceremony was held on February 8, 2014 at the Marshall Student Center Ballroom on the USF campus. Grand Councilor Jeff Hoffman, MAL '76, gave the Keynote Address. Adam Kowalski, Bowling Green '08, gave the Alumni Address. Geoff McDonald, Hartwick '05, represented the Alpha Sigma Phi Foundation. Benjamin Cabrera, South Florida '13, was the Founding President.
