Jeff Fifield ’76 Still Practicing, Playing Tennis, and Lovin’ Sigma Chi

Having his own dentistry practice, Jeff Fifield ’76 spends a lot of time at the office. But when he’s not working, you can find him on the tennis court, much like his days at EIU (when he had a scholarship for the sport).

Last Chance to Join the Honor Roll

Eta Mu Chapter would like to thank the 37 Brothers who have added their names to our Honor Roll this year. Without the loyal support of donors like you, we would not be able to accomplish our goals, hold alumni events, or support our active chapter—so we thank you for playing a vital role. If you haven't yet added your name to the Honor Roll, please take a moment to do so through our quick, easy, and secure online giving option. Click HERE to make your contribution and join the list of Brothers who have given to our 2016-2017 Annual Fund before it ends on August 31.

Thank you for your support!

Brother Finally Graduates After 28 Years!

We recently ask you to share your update, and Ed Pietrowicz, a 1983 initiate, was kind enough to share this proud moment in his life:

"I left EIU in the Spring of 1989 with one semester to complete for graduation," he says. "Most of my friends were gone and working, and it started to seem like I needed to get on with my life. I re-enrolled in online classes for the 2016 Spring semester and continued in the fall and following spring. After 28 years, I finally graduated. I attended the Spring 2017 ceremony."
