Transcript FIGHT! FIGHT! Sigma Chi brothers and friends cheer on the fight at the annual Fight Night in April. Photo hy Pin Lim GIVE'EM A LEFT Sigma Chis in the audience watch in awe as the boxers give each other strong blows. Photo hy Pin Lim Photo hy Pin Lim C^fPl Friends and Contacts for a Better Future Tn hoc signo vinces' - in this sign you will conquer, the motto of the Sigma Chi chapter of the University of Houston, has held true for all of its members. "This fraternity has given me friends for life and contacts to better my future," Doug Friday, a law student, who is also the treasurer of Sigma Chi said. Sigma Chi was founded in 1855 at Miami University in Ohio. It's Epsilon X chapter at UH was officially recognized by the University in 1954. The fraternity provides a range of opportunities for its members because it has the largest alumni chapter in the country and is the second largest national fraternity with more than 250 chapters nationwide. It also has chapters in Canada. "If you need help with your college work or with an internship or a job, there is somebody in this fraternity who has been there and will help you," Friday said. The fraternity is based on Christian morals and ideals. However, its membership is open to students with different convictions and talents who will uphold the basic ideals of Sigma Chi. Currently, there are 40 working members in the University chapter. Sigma Chi assists the Children's Miracle Network charity that provides support for incurable children all over the United States. "We have already achieved our goal of contributing $2,000 for this charity," Sigma Chi Vice President Chris Barletta said. One of the numerous ways Sigma Chi collects money for their charity organization is through fundraisers and parties. The most popular event is Fight Night, a series of boxing events. Other Sigma Chi events include the Annual Camoflauge Party, held every April 1st, and Frontier Fiesta, which pairs Sigma Chi with a sorority for a variety show. Midsummer Night Blues, South of the Border and Freakers Night are just more events that help keep Sigma Chi's colors of blue and gold soaring high over the campus of UH. • by Ronnate Asirwatham IN THE RING...
