Something's Happening in New Orleans!

Tulane Sig Eps Have Great Month

April was an excellent month to be a Sig Ep here at Tulane! After welcoming 19 new members into the fraternity at the beginning of the month, LA Alpha got on a roll…

The chapter had an excellent showing at the Greek Awards Ceremony, taking home President of the Year, Jon Brouk, New Member Education program of the year, as well as chapter advisor of the year, Jeff Schiffman.

In addition, and most importantly for our young alumni, Sig Ep finally brought home the 2007 fraternity intramural basketball championship. The team won its final game last night 31-38 against the men of Phi Beta Sigma. It is the first basketball championship in 3 years for the chapter, and we are quite excited.

Additionally, congratulations to Brother Will Dammin, who will be recognized as Battalion Commandeer for Navy ROTC this coming fall. Dammin is the third Sig Ep in three years to be Battalion Commander, following Jeremy Hall and Robert Doss. Congrats Will.

Also, on April 19th, Sig Ep hosted the 5th annual Boot Out Breast Cancer fundraiser at the Boot in New Orleans. This year, the chapter raised $6,400 for cancer research. It is the largest BOBC to date. Thanks to all who attended and contributed.
