Greek Brief

Sigma Chi prepares to colonize

The Sigma Chi fraternity will be joining the men’s Greek-letter community this spring as colonization begins next month for the group’s Foggy Bottom chapter.

The University invited Sigma Chi to return to GW’s campus in October, after an eight-year hiatus. The fraternity, which has already been in contact with students on campus, will recruit colony founders to start the new GW chapter beginning Feb. 13, when the group officially starts colonization. The group will not conduct rush for new members until fall 2006.

“We are looking for leaders on campus, men of good character, ability, honor and responsibility,” said Doug Shapiro, director of expansion for the Sigma Chi national organization.

Dean Harwood, GW Student Activities Center assistant director of Greek-letter life, said Sigma Chi will provide another distinctive group within the Greek community and more options for men interested in Greek-letter life on campus.

“This is a great opportunity for guys who see themselves as leaders to be the first class of Sigma Chi at GW,” Harwood said.
