Here is an email I received the other day. I think it shows just how far Sigma Chi reaches and not just in the United States.
So a funny thing happened 10 minutes ago that I thought you might enjoy hearing about.
I just got off the bus after classes and was walking to my house when I struck up a conversation with two elderly women who were out for a walk. After a moment they asked me if I lived in the area and I pointed to our chapter house, an unassuming brown and white split amongst a row of student housing here. One of the ladies asked what the “EX” in the window stood for, so I told her it was Sigma Chi and that I was a member. Suddenly the other women raised her hand to her heart and started singing “The Sweetheart of Sigma Chi”. Astounded, I joined in and when we were done I asked her how she knew the song, expecting a son or grandson of hers to be a Sig (keep in mind Greek life isn’t huge in Canada and our chapter is only 23 years old) . She remarked that everyone knows that song, and that she even knew the composer, Dudleigh Verson from Albion College. Surprised me just a little bit!
Hope that you’re having a good Monday.
