Finding My Home Away From Home

Before I even came to Hanover, I knew that I wanted to join a sorority. In high school, I had many friends, but not friends that I saw outside of school. I knew that I had always wanted a close knit group of friends, that I knew would love and support me, and be able…

Sigma Chi won’t let tradition die

Other traditions can be worth dropping — especially if they’re detrimental in some way. Specifically, I’m talking about run night serenades. Run night, if you don’t know, happens every year. It is…
