Back to School
After a rewarding summer filled with vacations, incredible experiences, jobs and internships, and brotherhood gatherings such as the Amelia Beef Festival put on by the Scott Family (Clay Scott, Delta Gamma spring 2017, Lee Scott, Gamma Upsilon fall 2013) the brothers of Eta Lambda have returned to Blacksburg and the beautiful Virginia Tech campus to begin their fall 2014 semester. An exciting and memorable semester is in the making as our brothers continue to pursue academic excellence, social extravagance and athletic prominence all while exemplifying the Jordan Standard and upholding the virtues of friendship, justice and learning.
Awards & Accomplishments
To cap off an excellent 2013-2014 school year, Eta lambda received the Peterson Significant Chapter granted by the Sigma Chi Foundation. The Peterson is the highest honor that an undergraduate chapter may attain and represents dedication, idealism, and achievement. Eta Lambda has received the award 8 out of the past 10 years.
This past summer, chapter advisor Edward “Doc” Spencer was named the most outstanding facilitator at the Balfour Leadership Training Workshop held at Ball State University in Muncie, IN. Doc continues to be a vital asset and beacon of guidance and wisdom for not only Eta Lambda but also Sigma Chi as a whole.
Eta Lambda invades Columbus
The weekend of September 5th-7th will go down in history for Eta Lambda and Hokie Nation. Over 40 active and alumni Eta Lambda brothers made the trip to Columbus, Ohio to witness our Virginia Tech Hokies battle and defeat the #8 ranked Ohio State buckeyes 35-21 in front of a record attendance of 107,517. Eta Lambda upheld Hokie Respect while also teaching Ohio St. how to have a good time in the process. H-O-K-I-E-S HOKIES!
Fall Rush Begins
Eta Lambda is gearing up for Fall Rush to recruit young men who represent and embody the ideals and virtues of Sigma Chi. The first event is September 9th at Hokie House from 5pm to 7pm. We encourage everyone to come out and meet the brothers and are excited to cultivate our fall pledge class into men worthy of belonging to the preeminent collegiate leadership organization in the nation.
