Today is the 114th anniversary of Sigma Pi Fraternity’s founding at Vincennes University in Vincennes, Indiana. Way back in 1897, a group of guys got together and thought that they should create what, at the time, was known as a literary society. They got together on campus, had discussions with professors, invited guests to talk about different ideas and philosophies – sounds like a real party. Then, through a series of interesting events, that society became known as Sigma Pi Fraternity and now – 114 years later – the fraternity is flourishing.
For my part, I’ve mentioned time and time again on this blog that I support the Sigma Pi Educational Foundation. To show my support for the Fraternity, I donate my time as a member of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees. And I give them a few bucks each year, too.
If you’re feeling a little bit charitable and have a few dollars that you’d like to see put to good use by reducing the cost of education for scholarship winners, then head over to the Foundation’s website and we will gratefully welcome your contribution. Thanks!
