Sigma Chi: Alpha Lambda Chapter, University of Wisconsin

Spring 2012 – A Look Forward

Last spring was a very successful semester for the Alpha Lambda Chapter and we are looking for similar success heading into the 2012 spring semester. In 2011, the Chapter rebounded from an unproductive spring rush in 2010 and initiated ten quality gentlemen, many of whom have made substantial contributions to the Chapter already. Using the strategies we learned last spring along with the positive momentum we built from our record setting fall rush class, the Chapter anticipates recruiting a large group of men who will live up to our three high ideals. The Chapter also looks forward to taking what it learned at the Recruitment 365 workshop held in October to recruit the future leaders of Sigma Chi.

The spring semester is the most important in terms of philanthropy to the Chapter, mainly because of Derby Days. Maybe the best part of the spring semester, Derby Days is our week long philanthropy when sororities compete in various competitions to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network. Last year’s Derby Days was the most successful in years, as the Chapter raised nearly $11,000 for charity. Preparations are already underway for Derby Days 2012, and we hope to finalize the date of the event by the beginning of the new year.

A new executive board will take over in the spring, and because numerous upper classmen will be studying abroad, younger guys in the house will have a chance to obtain these positions and show their leadership skills. Elections for positions like Pro-Consul, Risk Manager, and House Manager will soon be taking place, and there is already a lot of enthusiasm among the underclassmen to run for these positions. Once the new executive board is elected, we will go on a retreat to get everyone on the same page and set goals for the semester. We all look to build on a strong fall semester and take the Alpha Lambda Chapter to new heights in 2012.

In Hoc Signo Vinces,
Mitch Hoffman
Consul-Elect, Spring 2012
