With the days getting warmer and warmer and another class graduated, we start to feel pretty nostalgic about the good old days. This time of year, you may be wishing you could be back at the Old Red Barn, maybe enjoying the sunshine on the roof like the brothers in this picture, or as Richard Fish ’85 recalls, playing a game of wiffle ball. As Scott Jackson ’86 put it: “What a mess, but what a great place all at the same time.”

Why He’s Committed to Preserving Eta Mu’s Legacy for Future Generations

Pledging Sigma Chi was an easy choice for Rick Hengehold ’89 as a young student at EIU thanks to its great reputation. It was known around campus as one of the best houses to join, and Rick shared many of the same interests in music and sports with the brothers.

Having to pay his own way through school, Rick often found himself in a bind, financially. Hard decisions had to be made, and sometimes that included his dues. That’s part of the reason he gives back to the chapter today when he can.

Core Values, Vision, and Mission

Core Values

Our mission is to develop values-based leaders committed to the betterment of character, campus and community.

Vision
The fundamental purpose of the Sigma Chi Fraternity is the cultivation, maintenance and promotion of the core values of Friendship, Justice and Learning.

Mission
In the pursuit of these high ideals, the Sigma Chi Fraternity is able to offer tremendous value in augmenting the collegiate experience and supporting the lifelong journey of each of its members. We hope to assist brothers in becoming men of character, caring husbands, compassionate fathers and community leaders.
