Sigma Xi

Welcome to Sigma Xi - Kansas State University Chapter

Sigma Xi was founded in 1886 to honor excellence in scientific investigation and encourage a sense of companionship and cooperation among researchers in all fields of science and engineering. The Greek letters "sigma" and "xi" form the acronym of the Society's motto, "Spoudon Xynones," which translates as "Companions in Zealous Research."

Registration for the Sigma Xi annual meeting is now open.  The meeting will be from October 22 - 25 and will be held at Kansas City's Crown Center.  It will never be closer.  Plan now to attend. Follow the link for details.
