End of Winter Update

Sigma Chi Alumni, Friends, and Family,

Second semester of 2014-2015 is underway and even before the turn of spring break the active brothers of Eta Lambda have accomplished great things. Our chapter continues to excel in a variety of dimensions; academically, athletically, and socially. The virtues of the Jordan Standard remain a staple of how we live out our everyday lives to benefit not only ourselves but others as well.

Mission 365
On the weekend of February 6th, the brotherhood underwent a Sigma Chi National leadership based program titled Mission 365. Conducted by accomplished Sig Don Haddox, this program, developed in 2003, intends to enhance the quality and quantity of Sigma Chi chapters through innovative recruitment techniques. The program focuses on an experiential learning process that teaches active brothers the tools to determine the values and ideals within a potential member and see if Sigma Chi is a correct fit for them. The brotherhood gained valuable knowledge on future rush procedures and methods to glean into the character of future candidates of Eta Lambda.
Academic Excellence
The fall semester of 2014 proved to be a time of tremendous academic excellence for Eta Lambda. With 40 brothers appearing on Dean’s list, Eta Lambda claimed the sixth best IFC grade point overage. Both the brotherhood and pledge grade point averages rose exponentially from last spring. Our chapter is determined to continue this tradition of success and plan to exceed to even greater heights on our quest for knowledge.

Delta Zeta Pledge Class

Rush has concluded and Eta Lambda is proud to announce the emergence of seven outstanding spring pledges. As their pledgeship progresses, we are excited to see how these young men grow into Sigma Chis as they learn more about the ritual and the importance of striving to live out the Jordan Standard everyday.

Huntsman Golf Tournament
We are excited to announce that the time has come for this year’s Huntsman Golf Tournament benefiting the Huntsman Cancer Institute. Coinciding with Parent’s Weekend, the tournament will take place on Saturday, March 28th. All information that you need should be laid out in the attached pack

et. However, if you have any questions or comments please contact President Dow Perkins or Huntsman Co-Chairs Matthew Hourigan (804) 543-9715 and Jason Wells (804) 822-1740.
Relay for Life
For the past few years, Eta Lambda has participated in the American Cancer Foundation’s Relay for Life. As many can attest, cancer has affected just about everyone whether directly or indirectly. Numerous actives and alumni have been impacted greatly by cancer through friends family, or even themselves.We ask of you to help us fight cancer and beat our goal by donating to our cause through our Relay for Life team page. Help us find a cure!-Team Captain Dan Mangels

Sigma Chi Alumni LinkedIn
Please join if you haven’t already! Although the group has not been very active over the past few years, our undergraduate chapter is hoping it can become a common meeting ground for building relationships and career opportunities. Our brothers continually are landing excellent jobs and establishing their network base – and we see this as another tool to continue Eta Lambda’s successes. We are trying to get in as many Sigs as possible so please invite your brothers from your years at Tech and before we know it, the group will grow substantially in size!

We are doing our best to increase the relationships with our Alumni and we greatly appreciate any feedback, comments, or general ideas to increase the active alumni activity.  Please send any thoughts our way!

In Hoc,

Mitchell Moss
