New National Fraternity Coming to JSU
22 September 2004 — Thursday, September 23, 2004 starts a new
era at Jacksonville State University. Sigma Pi Fraternity will arrive on campus for the first time. Executive office
representatives from this nationally recognized fraternity will be moving to Jacksonville for a number of weeks to begin
the colonizing process. Sigma Pi Fraternity was selected among the 64 North American Interfraternity Conference
organizations to be the next new social fraternity at Jacksonville State University. An Interfraternity Council (IFC)
Expansion Committee, consisting of JSU sorority and fraternity members, faculty, and staff, served as the selection
Sigma Pi Fraternity will be looking for students that want to establish their own organization and own traditions on
campus. Because Sigma Pi has never been on JSU's campus, the men that join this group will be considered JSU Founding
Fathers. As new Founding Fathers, members of Sigma Pi will receive leadership training from the national fraternity.
Sigma Pi is an international fraternity with nearly 100,000 members worldwide. Alabama chapters include Auburn University,
the University of Alabama, and the University of West Alabama. Sigma Pi was founded nationally more than a century ago to
further develop brotherhood, character, scholarship, and chivalry among men of higher learning as well as to diffuse culture
amid all mankind.
