Rush Chair: Parth Shah (201) 274-9721
The gentleman of Sigma Alpha Mu Fraternity are proud to start the new quarter by opening their doors and providing a wholesome and genuine introduction to the principles of brotherhood, leadership, social relations, and alumni connections. We are pleased to invite you to partake in our Spring 2018 Rush by showing you what our brotherhood is about - a network of support that feels like a family away from home. Spring Quarter should be exciting, as membership in Sigma Alpha Mu enhances the UCSD experience by consistently offering fun events for its members. Make sure to stop by our booth on Library Walk during Weeks 1 and 2 and attend our rush events to learn more about the wonderful men in this chapter. Here are but a few experiences you can expect during your time here…
By joining Sigma Alpha Mu and becoming a member, you would have the opportunity to develop some of the closest relations in your life by joining a brotherhood that feels like family. Here at Sigma Alpha Mu there is never a shortage of fun events to attend, and there will always be a bro to support you by your side. For those of you who are athletically inclined, our chapter takes great pride in succeeding in IFC sports and some of your greatest memories may come from competing alongside brothers. We currently sit #4 in overall standings among other fraternities and we are looking to bump that up over the next quarter. Finally, by building connections throughout our chapter, you will find brothers with similar academic and professional aspirations who are willing to go the extra mile to propel you through your college career.
As a premier social fraternity, we believe that it is important to not only provide a great experience for our members, but to ensure that we consistently give back to our community. As leaders on the UCSD campus, many of our members have obtained prominent leadership roles in various organizations, including several executive positions on the Interfraternity Council. Likewise, our fraternity deeply values our support for our national philanthropy, the Alzheimer’s Association, and each year we host a sandcastle building competition with UCSD sororities, which raises money to support this cause. Furthermore, we strive to make a positive impact by competing in sororities’ philanthropic events, which has resulted in us getting 1st in SKBDC and 2nd in Delta Idol and Kat at Bat.
If you’ve spent any time around the brothers of Sigma Alpha Mu, then you’ll know that we believe college should be a thoroughly fun period in your life. In this spirit, we schedule weekly social events with all sororities at UCSD, and many of our brothers often attend sororities’ formal events. You’ll have the chance to attend some of the best parties you’ll experience during your time at UCSD, with events such as our signature blacklight/highlighter party. Apart from this, there’s also the opportunity to go to our formals in Las Vegas this Spring and in Big Bear during the Winter.
As the oldest, continually running chapter at UCSD, we have developed connections with over 30 years worth of Sammy Alumni. By getting to know some of these fine gentlemen, you will find people in all the fields of work you can imagine and establish networks that can lead to tremendous professional opportunities. Our quarterly alumni events offer you the chance to meet these older brothers that laid the foundation for this deeply rooted chapter at UCSD. In addition to the career opportunities that are made available through our vast network, you might just meet an older brother who can act as a mentor in your post-college endeavours.
As you can see, there are countless possibilities in our fraternity, but perhaps the greatest prospect is this: as a part of Sammy, you have the chance to make your college experience whatever you want it to be. So come out this Rush Week and learn from our brothers why they fell in love with this chapter.
