New Brothers, New Education

New Member Education and The Norman Shield
Patrick O'Leary ‘16

As the Magister, it is my responsibility to prepare the new class of pledge brothers for Initiation into Sigma Chi. Working alongside my fellow Phi Phi Chapter brothers, we will work to instill in the pledges the ideals of Sigma Chi, develop their pride in and commitment to the Fraternity through lessons of learning, participation and responsibility. 

Their pledge education will build off of a new program outlined by the International Fraternity in 2012. The Norman Shield, our familiar pledge manual created in 1929, will form the core of the program with weekly quizzes of pertinent historical accounts of Sigma Chi and its seven founders, along with interviews of the active brothers.

A different perspective on annual fund donation

As you open this email, we’re sure you have your preconceived notions: here’s Sigma Chi with the same old spiel about why we need money. You’re sick of reading the same story OVER and OVER again. Well, this month, we have a very different story for you.

Picture this: if something happened to you, how would your brothers know? If not that, if the actives needed a repair quickly, how would the fraternity contact you? Or if you needed something, how would you know who to email? Not everybody keeps an up-to-date contact list for many brothers to be accessed at once.
