As the first semester for our new Executive Board concludes, I am very excited to update everyone on what we have been able to accomplish so far. We have a great board of 9 very eager and ambitious men, who are ready to take SigEp Cal Psi to the next level. Our past E-Board did a great job setting our chapter up for success, so it is our mission to take us from good to great.
The semester started well with a fantastic Spring Recruitment, leading to 12 new brothers. These new brothers include the captain of the Rugby team, several Dean’s List scholars, and transfer/international students looking to get acclimated to the Pepperdine community. These young men just completed a very rewarding Sigma process and are now onto the Phi Challenge. With this class, we are now 88 men strong, which is on track to hit our 5-year goal of 100 men by next Fall.
Other strides our chapter has taken include: Adding a new philanthropy for a brother’s family charity (raising thousands of dollars), great turnout at SigEp’s Carlson Leadership Academy, stellar RLC talks from our favorite Pepperdine professors, and some really fun chapter programming. Along with all of this, our greatest accomplishment is that we submitted our first Buchanan Cup application in years. After a lot of encouragement from our Cal Psi alumni and our Regional Director, our Executive Board realized that we are in a great position to win this Most Outstanding National Chapter Award. After countless hours of data collection and essay writing we are proud of what we put forth to nationals. We look forward to seeing if all this hard work pays off when the trophy is handed out at our National Conclave in July.
We are very excited with the work we have gotten done this past semester and are ready to continue this success next year. I want to conclude by saying thank you to all of our awesome alumni for the support and donations we have received this semester. A large portion of our success can be credited to your help and past success from your collegiate days. Thanks again! HFF
