This spring Phi Sigma Pi welcomed three new Chapters into the Team Eta family. Last week we introduced the Eta Epsilon Chapter at Frostburg State University and the Eta Theta Chapter at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Last but certainly not least, we would like to introduce the Eta Zeta Chapter at Old Dominion University.
The Eta Zeta Chapter was Inducted on April 17th, 2016. This semester the Colony worked together to plan several events, including making cards for a local children’s hospital and partnering with the campus Women’s center. In addition to planning events the group established a strong foundation for Chapter operations. We asked them a few questions to help you get to know them better. Check out a few of the highlights from their journey below.
What was your favorite memory from this semester?
At our social event, we played musical chairs using music from our childhood. A few of our Brothers really know how to maneuver their way into a chair.
What is the Chapter looking forward to accomplishing next semester?
We are planning on doubling our numbers. The idea of continuing Eta Zeta’s legacy is exciting for all of us.
What three words would you use to describe Eta Zeta?
What does Phi Sigma Pi add to ODU’s campus?
The Eta Zeta Chapter provides a home for the academically driven. We provide a home for students who don’t feel like they fit in with other groups because of how ambitious they are. At Phi Sigma Pi, there is no limit on how we can impact our community, school and peers. I think the addition of this organization to our campus will prove to be a healthy and smart move and will increase the overall face value of the campus organizations.
What would you say to someone thinking about becoming a Founding Member?
Attend the meeting, ask questions, take the time to think it over and make sure it’s the right choice for you. Make sure you have the time to commit to such a large undertaking and that you don’t do it for the wrong reasons. Phi Sigma Pi is a great organization to belong to but it is only as good as you make it. If you want a chance to have a Brotherhood with people who are driven towards goals and all that life can give, then this is the place for you. The Tripod of Scholarship, Leadership and Fellowship isn’t just something that we say, we believe in it and we try to show it in our actions always; not just as a Fraternity but as individuals as well.You are also adding to the rich history of Phi Sigma Pi and everything you do will be worth it.
