Eta Sigma

In the year of 1973, there was a brother on grounds by the name of Brother Linwood Jacobs [Richmond (VA) Alumni Chapter], who was serving as an Associate Professor of Education and Associate Dean of Students responsible for facilitating the establishment of chapters of the Pan Hellenic Council members at the University. He began his search for noble men to join this Fraternity in the Fall of 1973. With the assistance of Brother Clarence F. Nelson, Jr. [Polemarch, Richmond (VA) Alumni Chapter], Brother Jacobs was able to prepare all of the administrative documents that were to be submitted to the Province Polemarch in hopes of establishing a chapter at the University of Virginia.
