Florida Institute of Technology added an eighth member to its Greek life community, Sigma Tau Gamma, this year. Commonly known as Sig Tau, the chapter made its debut as the fraternity’s Epsilon Omega chapter.
The process began in 2011 when Florida Tech’s Intra-Fraternity Council voted to allow a provisional chapter of Sigma Tau Gamma onto campus, the start of the chapter’s efforts to obtain its official charter. The Epsilon Omega chapter of Sig Tau was officially charted on Feb. 28, 2015.
The path to an official charter was a chance for the men of Epsilon Omega to prove themselves to the university and the community. Over that time, for example, they held a philanthropy event to support the Special Olympics; participated in events sponsored by the Office of Greek Life Florida Tech; and the combined GPA of all members had to above the all-Greek average.
“Sigma Tau Gamma has fought with everything they have to be a fraternity on this campus. With sincerity, respect and dignity they never, ever stopped working toward their goals,” said Director of Student Activities and Inter-Fraternity Council Advisor Cat McGuire.
Cameron Day, who served as chapter president over the last year, said he and other members have waited a long time to get to this point.
“I will never forget the blue and silver streamers flying around the room as National President Alyx Parker officially gave us our charter and we officially became the Epsilon Omega Chapter of Sigma Tau Gamma,” he said.
