Founded in 1873 at what is now the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, Phi Sigma Kappa is all about brotherhood. The organization has approximately 90 chapters across North America and promotes scholarship and the development of character. It's no surprise that several famous actors, politicians and comedians are Phi Sigma Kappas.

Who is the most famous person who is a Phi Sig? Cheech Marin tops our list. The “Up in Smoke” funnyman joined the Phi Sigma Kappa Fraternity when he was attending Cal State Northridge in 1968.
