Pledging our fraternity is a semester long process in which a pledge must prove to our brotherhood that he possesses the seven characteristics of a Sigma Chi, as stated in our Jordan Standard:
1. A man of good character
2. A student of fair ability
3. With ambitious purposes
4. A congenial disposition
5. Posessing of good morals
6. Having a high sense of honor
7. Having a deep sense of personal responsibility
The Magister (Pledge educator) guides the pledges through their journey and educates them on the history of the fraternity.
Sigma Chi Nationals, the Gamma Phi chapter, and the University of Miami all adhere to a strict anti-hazing policy.
