University of California, Irvine (UCI)
Founded: March 10, 2007
Installed: September 29, 2012
The UCI Chapter was started by two friends – Stuart Masuda and Tim Reynolds – contacting the National Office about starting an interest group after interacting with the local chapter of Phi Sigma Rho. The expansion took place in the Spring of 2007, where 16 Founding Fathers were pinned. Unfortunately, due to high graduation rates the first few years, the new colony never reached a size larger than 20. In the Fall of 2010, with less than 10 actives and a “do or die” recruitment effort the colony began to flourish. Within two years, the chapter was installed and grew to a size of 50 outstanding men.
