The Theta Zeta chapter of Bridgewater State University has been on campus for a little over a month, and are already reaching out and associating with other Greek Life. Our chapter has begun to form a relationship with the sorority Delta Phi Epsilon. The two Greek organizations came together and enjoyed a pasta social dinner, where we introduced each ourselves, socialized, and enjoyed some great pasta.
The Huntsman Olympics are upon us again! We are thrilled to have the Huntsman Olympics return for the third year in a row! Make a team, and sign up below! Let’s raise a boat load for cancer everybody!
Since our inception, Sigma Chis have endeavored to give back to our world. The Huntsman Olympics is Theta Zeta’s unique take on this Fraternal tradition. Through a week long series of fundraising events driven by the spirit of philanthropy and excited with a little friendly competition, registered teams who have donated to our cause compete to take home the glory of Olympic Gold.
Theta Zeta will be participating in BSU’s Relay for Life this Friday, April 8 from 7 PM to 7 AM the following morning. Although the Huntsman Cancer Institute is Sigma Chi’s primary philanthropy, we brothers at Theta Zeta couldn’t justify sitting idly by and letting an equally worthy cause go without support. As of Tuesday evening, we have raised $1,431 for the American Cancer Society.
Teams are encouraged to fundraise at the relay by running a booth with a unique, enticing good or service in exchange for a small donation. Theta Zeta has decided to run a Guitar Hero booth, where players will compete for the high score to win a Dunkin’ Donuts gift card. Only $1 per song attempt!
We hope to see you this Friday! IH.
Monday afternoon Theta Zeta received an unusual Facebook request from sisters of the Sigma Kappa sorority at American University in Washington D.C.: Can you send us pictures of yourselves? There was, of course, a point to this request. Competing in Kappa Rho Chapter’s Derby Days, teams were tasked with collecting pictures of Sigs holding a sign reading “Sigma Kappa American University.” We had to oblige! Hello from Bridgewater, MA!
17 Active Undergraduates of Theta Zeta fit coming out to support the Bridgewater-Raynham High School Swim Team into their busy schedules between classes and a Rush event later in the evening. I (Brodey Moran) have been up since 0430, but nothing could make me retire before getting these posts up on our website! Today was an absolute blast meeting new Rushes; I speak for all the Brothers when I say we cannot wait to continue Spring 2016 Rush tomorrow!
Since the beginning of the NBA regular season, Theta Zeta has been volunteering their time at Boston Celtics home games at the TD Garden on behalf of the Shamrock Foundation. Running the Foundation’s 50/50 raffle, Theta Zeta helps the Foundation raise thousands of dollars for the vital community action the Foundation is responsible for.
The mission of the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation is to extend the reach of the Celtics championship legacy into our community through programs that directly benefit children in need. To do this, the Foundation applies a team mentality – much like that of the 17-time world championship Celtics – and relies on key partnerships with New England-based non-profit organizations that provide vital services and support to youth.
Head over to their website, http://www.nba.com/celtics/community/shamrock-foundation/index.html, to see why we find it so rewarding to support the Shamrock Foundation weekly!
In honor of National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, Theta Zeta donated to help end hunger by donating to the food drive in the East Campus Commons on BSU’s campus. We encourage you to do the same!
The weather didn’t keep brothers of Theta Zeta from running in BSU’s Military Student Association’s Veterans Day 5K. Nor did it stop us from volunteering support for the event and cheering on the participants!
