Men,


As you know we have been having several technical glitches in the system we are using for recruitment. These issues should be resolved shortly. As for recruitment itself, we will proceed as planned.

Monday August 15th - A meet and greet will be held in the Great Hall of the Ferguson Center (right outside the food court) at 5:30 p.m. Followed by a Recruitment Convocation at 6 p.m. The purpose of the convocation is to inform you about the upcoming events as well as educate you on various techniques that are proven to help you go through recruitment. The educational portion will be given by our keynote speaker, Vince Fabra. The dress is business casual (khaki shorts/slacks and a collared shirt) and the event is expected to last until 8 p.m.

Tuesday August 16th - The first round of open houses will take place from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The 31 chapters have been broken into 7 groups of 4-5 chapters each. When you are given your schedule (a couple hours after convocation) it will tell you the times you are able to visit each group. You may visit all chapters within the group or none at all. We are leaving the extent of your recruitment experience up to you. We will have recruitment student advisers at each group to aid you if you have any questions.

Wednesday August 17th - The Greek Olympics will be held at the recreational fields starting at 5 p.m. and will last until 7 p.m. This event is fairly informal so feel free to come and go as you please. During this event we will be playing traditional tailgating games so dress is casual.

Thursday August 18th - The second round of open houses (invite only) will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. We have left the type of event up to the chapters in order to let them show their unique take on recruitment. You should receive a formal invitation via text or email by 10 a.m. the morning of the 18th.

Friday August 19th - A dodge ball tournament will be held at the Witt recreational center between the two presidential dormitories from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. You may form a team with other potential new members or you may be asked to join a chapter's team. You may be on multiple chapter's teams if you choose. Prizes will be awarded to the top teams.

We would like to thank you for your patience as well as participation during our first annual structured recruitment.

Thanks,

UA IFC

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Members of Sigma Chi fraternity, in conjunction with University of Alabama sororities, raised $25,000 to donate to Children’s Hospital of Alabama.

Community Sponsors included: Chuck’s Fish, Smoke It Up Tobacco, The Balcony, The Lofts, Rounders, JNJ Apparel, Pyro’s Pizza, Crimson Smokers LLC, Renasant Bank, Nationwide Insurance, East Edge, Cahaba Veneer, Inc, Investar Real Estate Services, Inc., Secoa Technology, Welsh Wear, High Tide Bar, Hodges & Ford, Marsh, Rickard, & Bryan, P.C., Habenero’s Trussville, LLC, Tuscaloosa I, LLC, Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP, Capstone Hotel and Omega Financial, Inc.

According to Sigma Chi President, Hunter Ross, “The fraternity works months in advance to encourage participation and involvement to raise funds that will enable Children’s Hospital of Alabama to continue their mission of providing specialized medical care for ill and injured children.”   

Shane Autrey, Community Development Coordinator, expressed, “We are so grateful for this donation to Children’s of Alabama. It is amazing to see these young gentlemen have a successful event and meet their ambitious fundraising goals to help the children. Thank you to Sigma Chi, the sororities, The University of Alabama, and all the donors who helped contribute to Derby Days 2016.”
