Upcoming Recruitment Events

Meet The Fraternities
Monday February 1st 8pm-11pm; Located in the Student Center Lobby

This event is a chance for all of the fraternities to meet students that are interested in Greek life. This event is held in the Student Center lobby, where each organization will set up a table representing their respective organization. Groups of potentials interested will be taken around to each organizations table and be given the chance to talk to groups about their organization. After the “round- about,” the potentials will be urged to hang-out at Bottle Hill Room in the Student Center, where each organization will have members hanging out.

Sigma Chi Info Session
Friday February 5th + February 15th at 8pm; Located in the Florham Rm. In the Student Center Lobby
We invite all potentials from Meet the Fraternities to come and learn more about our chapter and a Fraternity as a whole. This is an opportunity for us to get to know the potentials on a more personal level and provides an opportunity for them to ask any questions about us and what opportunities we can provide. Typically, we will show a recruitment video, a Power-point presentation, as well as,  a chance to meet some of our brothers face-to-face. We would love to have any Alumni participation at both of these events to offer insight on what Sigma Chi has done in the past and the role it plays in your lives today. 

X-BOX Gaming Night
Wednesday February 10th at 7:30pm; Located at Twombly Lounge

We plan to invite all potential new-recruits to have a relaxing night playing X-Box video games and hanging out with the brothers. This gives the brothers and opportunity to get to know the potentials better, as well as the potentials to get to know us in a more casual setting. This event would be sponsored by one of our Alumnus, who has offered to help us by donating some X-Boxes. Again, we encourage Alumni attendance at this event.

David Letterman Show
Wednesday February 17th in NYC by 3pm

This recruitment event would be a trip into The City to attend a taping of the Late Show, hosted by fellow Sig, David Letterman. We plan to invite the potential new-recruits to attend, as well as many brothers that can attend.

A Message From Alumnus A.J. Rathbun

Just wanted to let you know I'm taking part in the 2010 Polar Bear Plunge on Saturday, February 27, 2010. As many of you know, funds raised through the Polar Bear Plunge help to advance the goal of Special Olympics New Jersey, to provide free year-round training and competition in 24 Olympic-type sports to more than 18,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

Having worked at the Special Olympics Summer Games in the past I've gotten to see firsthand the joy on the faces of the athletes who participate in the various events. Seeing those smiling faces makes it easy to make the dive into the frigid waters of the Atlantic, but that's only part of it, and why I need your help.

You can make an online donation of any amount by visiting my personal donation page and helping me reach my fund-raising goal;

Many companies will also do a matching donation for funds contributed to Special Olympics so your donation can have an even greater impact.

We're also looking for folks who may want to take the plunge themselves (with a bar crawl afterward). If you're interested in participating, go to the link below and click on "Plunger Registration". When prompted, indicate you want to join a team and choose team "Sofa Kings". Either way I appreciate your support.
