Sigma Chi Chapter At Clarkson Recognized Nationally

The Sigma Chi International Fraternity of Oxford, Ohio, has recognized its Clarkson University chapter for excellent performance in operations and programming.

The Iota Zeta chapter of Sigma Chi was one of 47 chapters across the United States and Canada to be awarded the Peterson Significant Chapter Award.  This is the fourth year in a row -- and seventh time out of the thirteen years since the chapter has been at Clarkson -- that it has been given this prestigious award. 

In recognition of this achievement, the chapter will receive a plaque and the university will receive an educational grant on behalf of the chapter.

 “Sigma Chi is an outstanding chapter and a leader in academics and community service,” says Jason C. Libby, Greek Affairs coordinator at Clarkson University. “This chapter is another example of the successful fraternity and sorority system we have here at Clarkson.”

Academically, the chapter succeeded in ranking second out of nine fraternities with a 3.17 cumulative grade point average. This past year, the chapter raised over $5,500 for the Children’s Miracle Network during their annual Sigma Chi Derby Days events.

Clarkson University fraternities and sororities must meet high standards of academic performance, conduct and community service.

The Sigma Chi Fraternity was founded in 1855 and has 226 undergraduate chapters in the United States and Canada.
