The Sigma Alpha Sigma fraternity was originally founded as a Jewish engineering fraternity at the University of Minnesota in 1920 after World War I. According to its constitution, enrollment was open to students registered in the Institute of Technology or majoring in technical sciences who were of Jewish origin. A later constitution only required that members be registered in the Institute of Technology or a student of architecture or physical science. The society became dormant around 1987.
