How did you get involved with Sigma Chi?

Coming from Bermuda, I didn’t know anybody at UBC and hence decided to join the Greek System. Sig’s Toga Party was actually the first ever UBC event I attended, and in just that night alone I met so many amazing guys that have become some of my closest friends today. Whether it be a casual study night or a banger at the house, there’s no other group of guys I’d rather spend my time with.   

Favorite Event at Delta Omicron:

It’s impossible to narrow it down to one, but my two favourites would be the annual Toga Party and the Haunted House fundraiser. Toga has such an exciting atmosphere and is an awesome way to meet new people who have just started at UBC. The Haunted House is another amazing (and slightly terrifying) event to partake in. All proceeds generated go to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, so I love being a part of it and having the opportunity to give back to the community. 

Favourite part about Sigma Chi?

My favourite part about Sigma Chi is the people, of course. I have never met such a talented, driven and genuine group of men. Every single one of them is going somewhere amazing in life and it’s an honour to be their Sweetheart. Their friendships and brotherhood are so strong, and they are continuously inspiring and motivating each other to succeed.

Interests:

Outside of being involved in my sorority, I enjoy hiking, reading, travelling, and spending time with my family and friends.

Future Plans:

Once I complete my undergrad, I hope to obtain a Masters in Economics. I’d love to take a year to travel the world before settling down into a career, so hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to do that!

Any advice for potential new members interested in rushing this fall?

I know everybody says this, but just be your true self. Also, go into Rush with a completely open mind and make the most out of the experience. Talk to as many of the brothers as you can, because they are all incredible and are most likely just as excited to meet you as you are to meet them!
