Revisit Brotherhood & MSU Basketball this Spring!
In 1855, seven men in pursuit of high ideals founded the Sigma Chi Fraternity. In 1922, in pursuit of academic excellence, Murray State Normal School was founded.
Finally, in 1959, a timeless tradition was born with the establishment of the Epsilon Tau chapter of Sigma Chi on the campus of Murray State University. That tradition still thrives today…
To recognize the enduring ties that bind an unparalleled organization and its members, the Epsilon Tau chapter of Sigma Chi will host its 3rd Annual ΣΧ Basketball Homecoming on February 17-18, 2017, with events at the chapter house and on campus, culminating with the Racers taking on Eastern Illinois at the CFSB Center on Saturday night!
This year’s 2-day event will pay special tribute to chapter Magisters (pledge trainers) throughout the years, with special honors and recognition during Friday evening’s kick-off event; no alumni will want to miss this chance to honor their Magister!
Now in its 3rd season, this reunion event has grown bigger each year since its inception as an “empty-nester” road trip by a couple of Sigs who just happen to love Racer basketball! With the support of the university’s Alumni Association and the efforts of both active and alumni Sigs spanning multiple generations, brothers young and old from all across the country will again have the chance to come together and experience the bonds of friendship and fraternity that have sustained the success of Sigma Chi’s Epsilon Tau chapter at Murray State for more than 60 years.
The weekend’s event schedule includes the following:
