The Greek Literary Association and Beta-Gamma undergraduate leadership have developed a solid plan to address the long-term viability of the Kappa Sigma experience on the University of Missouri campus. Through careful study, assessment, and planning, it has been determined that a complete renovation to the house is necessary, and the fraternity must invest in the home to meet the needs of today’s students. Working with Brother Frank Oddo ’55 and Oddo Development, a plan has been created that will provide a safe and competitive facility. An emphasis will be placed on maintaining the historical integrity of the house while providing a safe and attractive environment for the chapter. The plan will bring the facility into compliance with all disability, safety, and fire code requirements. The Greek Literary Association has placed a special emphasis on the use of practical and durable building materials, finishes, and fixtures. The goal is a high-quality, durable facility that will provide a safe living and learning environment for many years.
