The Tomahawk of Alpha Sigma Phi (ISSN 0741-5435) is an educational journal published by Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity. The Tomahawk is the oldest college fraternity publication. It first appeared in November 1847 at Yale University and continued until the University suspended it in 1852. Since its revival in April 1909, it has been continuously published.

The Tomahawk seeks to reflect the Vision and Purpose of Alpha Sigma Phi by presenting news of active chapters, affiliate organizations, individual members, and the Fraternity; by addressing current issues facing the Greek community and our Fraternity; by educating and entertaining those interested in the welfare of Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity, and by serving as a historical record.

Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity, Inc., was founded at Yale University in 1845 and currently recognizes 182 chapters, provisional chapters, and interest groups across North America. The Fraternity aims to provide values-driven brotherhood experiences through life.

Alpha Sigma Phi is proud to introduce the first-ever Alpha Sig Everywhere to take place across the United States on Monday, November 6, 2023. This day is simply about brotherhood and kicks off our Founders Day season of celebration. Exactly one month before our 178th Founders Day, there will be an opportunity near you to meet with brothers from your area to either reconnect or make new acquaintances!

Our Fraternity has been around for far longer than any of us. The same can be said for some of our individual chapters. But what keeps the ideals of our Founding Fathers alive in 2023? Alpha Sigma Phi was founded in a time when fraternity membership at Yale was extremely exclusive to the likeminded and privileged. Louis Manigault, Stephen Ormsby Rhea, and Horace Spangler Weiser dreamt of an Alpha Sigma Phi that would provide fraternal opportunity to a broader population of Yale students, and eventually, collegiate men far beyond New Haven.

Today, our brotherhood spans over 180 campuses in North America and have initiated more than 95,000 men during our 178-year history.

Our chapters have grown accustomed to hosting gatherings throughout each and every academic year, and 2022-23 was no different.

To appreciate the very beginning of our great brotherhood and the ideals for which we continue to value, brothers from all across the United States will come together and kick off our Founders Day season of celebration.
