Theta Alpha Provisional Chapter
University of Stirling
Founded: Not Chartered
An Interest Group at the University of Stirling began in the fall of 2014 when Marcus Deniz-Heyer, Stirling ’15 contacted Fraternity Headquarters. Deniz-Heyer was the best friend of Omar El-Sharawy, McGill ’14, the founding President of the Eta Nu Chapter of Alpha Sigma Phi. The Interest Group continued to develop throughout the late fall of 2014 and early spring of 2015. Four men from the Provisional Chapter were invited to attend international leadership programs in St. Louis, MO in January of 2015. Staff members, Cory Ryan, Wake Forest ’10 and LT Piver, Chico State ’11 visited the University of Stirling in April of 2015 to officially colonize the Theta Alpha Provisional Chapter on April 9, 2015 and initiate the founding class on April 10-11, 2015. The Theta Alpha Provisional Chapter is the first expansion for Alpha Sigma Phi outside of North America.
In November of 2017, the undergraduate men of Theta Alpha Provisional Chapter and Fraternity Staff came to a mutual agreement to cut ties with the provisional chapter as the Alpha Sigma Phi experience was not replicable in Scotland. The 33 men who have been initiated into Theta Alpha will always be Brothers of Alpha Sigma Phi.
