Sigma Pi will hold their annual rush on Jan. 28, at 7:00 p.m. at the Tiger’s Den.
Founded at UWA on Feb. 21, 1996, Sigma Pi has been steadily growing membership.
“I’m very excited for the spring rush this year,” said Nick Spradling, president of Sigma Pi. “I’ve been active as president of this fraternity since December. I’ve seen how much we have accomplished and grown as a group of brothers in such a short amount of time, and I can’t wait to continue seeing the changes.”
The fraternity consists of a group of young men from different places and backgrounds, but they share the same ideals of their founders according to the Social Fraternities and Sororities Handbook.
“I’ve been an active member of Sigma Pi for five years,” said Nick Taggart, a senior at UWA majoring in history. “All of our members are quite different from one another, but we still have a strong bond that holds our group together.”
Sigma Pi members are active in all intramural sports and hold different positions at the university. For example, many of the group’s members are active in UWA’s Student Government Association, the Honors Program and Biodiversities.
“I’m an alumni now of Sigma Pi,” said Justin Butcher, a senior sociology major. “However, I was a member for two years while holding a position in SGA as well. Several of my other brothers have also been active members while being active in other groups at the university.”
Sigma Pi also has an annual national philanthropy with the American Red Cross. The fraternity helps with events, such as Project Share and Disaster Relief.
“Being a part of this fraternity has allowed me to experience teamwork and leadership skills that I can’t get anywhere else,” Said Hunter Winborne, a sophomore majoring in accounting. “Helping out with our annual philanthropy definitely makes me more proud to be a member of this fraternity.”
