Kappa Sigma President

Will Mitchell is president of The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) Epsilon Nu Chapter of Kappa Sigma Fraternity. The Pascagoula, Miss. native is a junior business management major. He has served the chapter as both vice president and president. He is also a member of the Order of Omega Honors Society and the Student Government Association (SGA) Senate. He recently spoke with Southern Miss Now about his work as president of the chapter, his fraternity’s philanthropic and community service efforts and why a USM student should consider becoming involved in a Fraternity and Sorority Life and at the University.

Duties as chapter president: “My work as president of Kappa Sigma consists of engaging in external affairs concerning the fraternity and general oversight of the chapter. On a day-to-day basis, I meet with my executive committee to ensure everything is running smoothly concerning the operations of the fraternity. What I love most about leading my chapter is growing bonds with all my members, and seeing the work we can do. We’ve accomplished a lot of good for our community and I’m excited about our future.”

Kappa Sigma’s service to others: “Some highlights of Kappa Sigma’s recent community service and support of charity include starting an inaugural Pickleball philanthropy event to raise money for the Military Heroes Campaign. In our first year, we raised more than $1,000 for this effort, and we received great participation from the IFC (Interfraternity Council) and CPC (College Panhellenic Council).”

Benefits of Fraternity and Sorority Life at USM: “To someone considering joining Greek Life at Southern Miss I would say go for it, 100 percent. It has changed my college experience in the best way I could imagine. I was uncertain when I came to campus about [joining] Greek Life, but within the first week, I knew I had made the right decision.

“Greek life has done wonderful things for me, providing countless opportunities as well as lifelong friends and an experience that is second to none. It [Fraternity and Sorority Life at USM] is important to the University because of our work on and off campus. We do profit shares with local businesses [in support of charitable initiatives] and devote days and sometimes weeks in support of philanthropy and through community service projects to help our local community and the University as well.”
