Sigma Chi 154th Birthday

June 12, 2009

On June 28th Sigma Chi will be 154 years old. It would be nice if we could let everybody know that this day is a special occasion. With so many people using social networks these days it seems so easy to have everybody update their “status” on June 28th and let everybody know that it’s Sigma Chi’s birthday. So that is what we are asking everybody to do, just update your status with the following message on June 28th, 2009.
“Happy 154th Birthday Sigma Chi #ShareSigmaChi”

Since all the different social networks are slightly different, here are some different status/message/updates you can use.

Facebook: Update your status to “Happy 154th Birthday Sigma Chi –”

MySpace: Update your status to “Happy 154th Birthday Sigma Chi –”

LinkedIn: Update your status to “Happy 154th Birthday Sigma Chi –”

Twitter: Tweet “RT @sharesigmachi Happy 154th Birthday #SigmaChi – *”

Also feel free to upload a video to YouTube or any other video service of you saying “Happy 154th Birthday Sigma Chi”.

[update] We are reviewing the idea of giving out a prize or gift of some sort for doing this. We’ll update you with more info soon, but we are thinking we may randomly select 1 person who updates their status and send them a prize.
[update] We have such a strong response to our 154th birthday idea that we have decided to reward you for your support. We will be giving away a $50 (Apple or Amazon) giftcard to the winner. To be eligible you will need to be following @sharesigmachi on Twitter or you must be

Podcast with Co-Founder of

June 3, 2009

We recorded our Horizons podcast with Keith Krach on Monday and have another planned for tomorrow. The podcast with Keith went very well, everyone who participated did a fantastic job and we really hope to have them all back again to discuss Sigma Chi. We did have a bit of technical difficulties with our recording software as it decided to not record the last half of the podcast. We have been in contact with the creators of the software and they have assured us that it was a fluke thing. So hopefully we won’t have any other problems in the future.

So as the title of this post reads, we will be recording another podcast tomorrow night with a Co-Founder of, Erik Jensen.  Erik is a Ball State graduate/initiate and now lives in Chicago, IL. We will discuss why he started OutOfWorkChicago and how it’s beneficial. We will also discuss how Sigma Chi helped Erik starting his business and what suggestions he has for those looking to start a business.

We should have the Horizons podcast up sometime tonight and we’ll try to have tomorrow’s podcast uploaded by the weekend. Remember you can get a list of all our podcasts here

Thanks again to everybody for all their support
