SigEp Welcomes New Members during Fall 2014 Rush
Dartmouth SigEp had an excellent Recruitment cycle culminating with IFC Rush the weekend of September 26-28,2014. Alumni Mentor Calvin Richardson '07 provided support to Recruitment Chairs David Berg '16 and Joe Clyne '16 as they developed a comprehensive plan that started last Spring when they were elected.
SigEp tied Psi Upsilon fraternity for the highest number of new members at 35, and 100% of the bids extended were sunk demonstrating great alignment between the chapter and the men we recruited.

With the largest Chapter House on campus (26 beds), SigEp is looking forward to adding additional members during the smaller Winter Rush event when students who were off campus during their Sophomore Fall term become eligible to join fraternities.
New members come from a wide range of interests and backgrounds and are already making big contributions on campus. Among the new members (Sigmas) are a varsity soccer player, a professional figure skater and former member of the USA Figure Skating Team, several members of the Dartmouth Aires,
New Member (Sigma) Tom Palladino '17 described his rushing experience this way, "The rush chairs Dave and Joe have been committed to building a strong Sigma class from day one. The pre-rush events all last winter and spring gave 17s the chance to get to know the house and the brothers in ways that other fraternities' pre-rush events didn't, and the events leading up to rush this fall gave prospective new members an even closer look into SigEp. The brothers were eager to connect with as many 17s as possible during rush and answer any questions they had about the house."
The AVC and the entire SigEp alumni brotherhood extend a warm welcome to our newest members from the Class of 2017:
