History of the Tidewater Chapter

The origins of the Tidewater, Virginia Chapter of Sigma Xi date to 1962, when it was chartered with 12 original members and was installed as the “Norfolk College of William and Mary Sigma Xi Club”, which was soon renamed the Old Dominion College Sigma Xi Club.  In 1983, the name of the Chapter was changed to its present form to reflect the participation of regional  colleges and universities.  The chapter now includes active members from Old Dominion University , Norfolk State University , Eastern Virginia Medical School , Christopher Newport University, and Hampton University in addition to the participation of other area scientists.
