Description

150 Years & Counting

The Mu Chapter of Sigma Chi is celebrating the 150th anniversary of its charter at Denison on April 13-14, 2018. The weekend’s activities are planned to observe, honor, and remember the legacy of Denison’s “Men of Mu,” as well as look forward to the dynamic future of the chapter on campus. Brothers, along with family members and friends of the chapter, are invited to join the celebration.

Denison President Adam Weinberg will be on hand to share his remarks, and our keynote address will be delivered by the incomparable Richard Hester, the 59th Grand Consul of Sigma Chi Fraternity and a fantastic speaker.

Cost for alumni and friends for the weekend (excluding golf) is $150 per individual. Their guests are welcome for Saturday’s dinner at the Granville Inn at a cost of $75.

And if you’d really like to make a weekend of it, stick around until Sunday afternoon, when the No. 6-ranked Big Red men’s lacrosse team plays host to No. 12 Ohio Wesleyan in a contest between backyard rivals with important conference, regional, and national implications. Face-off is at 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 15, at Deeds Field-Piper Stadium, and the place will be rockin’.

You won't want to miss this landmark event in our chapter's long and celebrated history!

Please register soon so we can give the Granville Inn an accurate count for dinner.

For on-campus events, parking will be available in the Reese~Shackelford Common parking garage, and golf cart shuttles will be available upon request to transport alumni and guests between the garage and the Sigma Chi House.
