2015 Alumni Brother Retreat
In January 1990, the Alpha Tau pledge class was initiated.
In honor of the 25th Anniversary, I was inspired to plan a simple reunion get away to reconnect with our brothers and their families. But of course this event is open to all alumni, spouses, families, undergraduates, etc.

Sigs for Soldiers
Please visit the following website being created: SigsforSoldiers.org. Dave Fraser (HI '77) is participating in a Sigma Chi charitable program that may be very well received. Efforts are under way to get it recognized nationally through official Sigma Chi National channels. Dave thought there might be interest among my own chapter's fellow alumnus in that many are currently or have formerly served in the armed forces. The soldier featured is a Sigma Chi. Click on the links and read about his plight. Please pass the word.
