Current Events/Accomplishments

This has been a great year for the Eta Rho chapter in not only brotherhood involvement but campus involvement as well. Here is an update on what has been going on:

  • Walk A Mile In Her Shoes 2017: On April 6th, 2017 we had six Sigma Nu’s (including one alumni) participate in the Walk A Mile In Her Shoes campaign. This event raises awareness of sexual assault, rape, and gender violence.

 Stay Connected!

For the alumni reading this newsletter, I hope we have kept you updated on the well being of not only our chapter as a whole, but made you feel included in the every day lives of individual active members. We strive for perfection in everything we do and seek to better everything we are a part of. We continue to soar through expectations and break the boundaries of self limitation.

Stay tuned for more updates, newsletters, and event calendars that will be available all throughout the year. Be sure to check any updates on Facebook, as well as Twitter and Instagram.

Fraternally,
