“When I became a Sigma Chi it was great; I was proud of the association. It was kind of an instant confidence builder for me, that, and what I considered the best fraternity on campus, had actually wanted me. I had always been very shy and without a lot of confidence. It was a really good social experience, and for me, a social maturation and a great benefit.”

“What you do in life by yourself doesn’t mean as much as what you accomplish with a group of people. Sigma Chi was one of the greatest things that happened to me. I really appreciate what it has done for men in my lifetime and I hope I can continue to give something back.”
