Why do the Epsilon Tau brothers of Sigma Chi continue a tradition of returning to Murray State for a basketball homecoming reunion, year after year? Maybe it’s the memories…
Who doesn’t remember hearing members of other fraternities say “I was a…” after graduating? But Sigs proudly declare “I AM a Sigma Chi” for all of our days
This year’s anniversary event kicks off by honoring our own Significant Sigs and Distinguished Alumni. We’ll build on that with a Chapter Meeting & “Initiation Ceremony” for all active and alumni Brothers! We’ll re-dedicate the renovated chapter house, too. Then, it’s “Shoes Up!” to cheer on the Racers against conference rival Austin Peay State University at the CFSB Center on Saturday night!
We are both honored, and humbled, to announce a special guest: 70th Grand Consul Tommy Geddings Jr., SOUTH CAROLINA 1985, will be joining us this year… DON’T MISS IT!
For its 5th season, the reunion is celebrating a MORTGAGE-FREE chapter house! The success of our on-going capital fundraising campaign, “Sigma Chi Proud,” has enabled some unbelievable house renovations that emphasize education and our rich chapter history, to build even stronger bonds between our alumni and future Sigs!
Modern society has dictated major changes to the social contract between fraternities and universities this past year; what has not changed is the role Sigma Chi has again assumed, as a leader in developing leaders of men!
What is true for our fraternity internationally, is especially true for our chapter here at Murray State. For 2019 Epsilon Tau again has the support of the Alumni Association in “bringing home” active and alumni Sigs, to share the bonds of friendship and fraternity that have sustained us for more than 60 years!
