Theta Chapter Stays True to Sigma Chi’s Vision
Ranks No. 1 in Gettysburg College Fraternity/Sorority Annual Evaluation Process
The beginning of the year marks another opportunity to reflect on the accomplishments of our great chapter and to set new goals that will help us improve. Theta Chapter of Sigma Chi prides itself on its standing as the premier leadership organization at Gettysburg College. As a result of the dedication and hard work of the past administration, we received the highest overall score during the 2019 Fraternity/Sorority Annual Evaluation Process.
This feat marks the only instance of a male fraternity placing first in the rankings since the evaluation process was introduced. We can now add this achievement to a list that includes our recent placement as the fourth highest performing chapter in the Sigma Chi Fraternity at large. Thus, the state of the chapter is one of great pride for what we have done and great excitement to see what more we can do.
Strengthening the Brotherhood
We will not rest on our laurels. Our new executive board is determined to further develop our strengths and eliminate our weaknesses. The mission: solidify our chapter as a key element of the Gettysburg community and be recognized as an unparalleled leadership opportunity for men of good character on campus. We wish to ensure that one’s decision to join our ranks represents the best possible decision that an undergraduate can make, one which allows him to grow as a leader and to be immersed within an experience of true brotherhood.
We are seeing continued interest from potential new members, and we have plans to take a spring semester new member class for the second consecutive year. We are also making more connections with non-Greek organizations on campus, reaching out to underrepresented students, and further involving our parents. These initiatives have made us an obvious partner and resource for a variety of campus groups who recognize us as men who honor our commitments to the fullest extent.
Focused on Living Our Core Values
In my estimation, our chapter is on the precipice of reaching its full potential. The necessary elements are in place: a comprehensive committee system, strong allies, and, most significantly, a dedicated and capable brotherhood. I hope that throughout my term as consul, I will have shown my love for this chapter and my brothers.
I want the entire campus and International Fraternity to know us as the premier collegiate leadership organization that we are, and I want to lead more young men toward the White Cross—men who will remain staunchly committed to their lifelong obligation as Sigma Chis. The world expects more of us than it does of other men. And therefore, I am honored and excited to represent the Theta Chapter.
