The triathlon

I competed in a triathlon this past weekend. It was unofficial, and one of the events might have been eating a sandwich, but I did three things, so that counts, right? Event 1: The Track Meet. Hanover hosted a track meet Saturday, so a handful of my fraternity brothers and I went over to support…

A busy, yet eclectic, week

This week, like many others, has been crazy to say the least. With I-Week, scheduling and theater rehearsal, I had quite a bit on my plate. Let me break it down for you. I-Week at Sigma Chi is a time for the pledges to really grow together and bond with the current brothers. Spending as…

But every year, Hanover has the biggest night on campus called Run Night. During Run Night, the Hanover fraternities welcome their new pledges by running from Lynn Gym to their…

I-Week!

I write this from the basement of the Sigma Chi house on campus, in the midst of my I-Week. For the last nine weeks, I have been a  Sigma Chi pledge, but in only a handful of days I may be lucky enough to be a Sigma Chi for the rest of my life. The…

Greek life isn’t necessarily what you think

Greek life isn’t for everyone. Some people want to be a part of a fraternity or sorority and others don’t. I assumed Greek life wasn’t for me and was completely against it my freshman year.
