SPRING 2017 issue

The Lambda Tau chapter is excited to continue the success of the Fall 2016 semester and channel it into Spring. We initiated 13 new brothers from the Lambda pledge class and we now have 70 active brothers which is the chapter's largest membership in its history. We are excited to be hosting our 2nd annual Derby Days on the Florida Atlantic campus and are on steady track to meet the requirements for our first Peterson Award this year. We broke records for our chapter this year and could not be prouder to continue this trend of philanthropy success. We are also launching our new website SigmaChiFAU.org continue outreach and awareness. We'd also like to welcome our new head coach Lane Kiffin to Florida Atlantic! Go Owls!

Our chapter proved to be a dominant force at Florida Atlantic this year. We hosted our first annual Derby Days that was able to raise over $6,800 for Huntsman.

Our Greek Life office recognized us for Brotherhood and Living Our Ritual excellence, on top of receiving the Bash Award for Significantly Improved Chapter by Sigma Chi. Lambda Tau is determined for our first Peterson Award this year and to join the $20K Club for Huntsman. Go Owls.

Our chapter hosted its inaugural Derby Days during the 2015 to 2016 school year and raised more than $6,800 for the Huntsman Cancer Institute. In addition, we won the Phi Mu Sir Fidel Cup.

SPRING 2016 issue

We initiated 23 new brothers from the Iota pledge class into Sigma Chi last fall which happens to be our largest pledge class and our 55 brothers now constitutes the chapter's largest membership in its history. Our third-annual Rent-a-Sig auction and inaugural bubble soccer tournament raised more than $2,000 for the Huntsman Cancer Institute, and we have won three philanthropic events hosted by our Greek-letter community's women's organizations the Phi Mu Fraternity's Miracle Man, the Theta Phi Alpha Fraternity's Koozie Contest and the Sigma Kappa Sorority's Ultra Violet Campaign. Finally, we congratulate Vincent Fernald, BRIDGEWATER STATE 1990, on becoming our new chapter advisor.

FALL 2014 issue:

The university's Office of Greek Life recognized us in the spring with the awards for new member of the year, chapter advisor of the year, and the Living Your Ritual Excellence Award. Michael Cepeda, 2015, was elected to the position of Student Body President. Our bothers went above and beyond the call of duty in their philanthropic efforts, and did not go unnoticed. The chapter was also privileged to host its first spring mixer. We were excited to celebrated the first anniversary of our installation on May 4, 2014, and we are ecstatic about welcoming our next class of brothers in the fall.
