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.
After an incredible I on Friday, April 22, Theta Zeta welcomed our four newest brothers to their first Chapter meeting today, Sunday, April 24.

The latest Theta Zeta lineup
Theta Zeta is working the finish line of the 120th Boston Marathon today! With over 30,000 runners from 80 countries, it’s sure to be a busy day! Boston Strong!
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!
Chris Saikali (Bridgewater ’12) visited the Theta Zeta chapter this evening to offer his wisdom to the Spring 2016 pledge class. Heading a focus group on leadership, Magister Nick Abbondanzio invited Saikali to offer his perspective on the past, present, and future of our chapter. A former Kustos, Magister, and Consul, Saikali gave his advice on maximizing the potential of this year’s operations, as well as achieving our chapter’s strategic goals.
Theta Zeta turned out at the TD Garden to volunteer for the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children through the Shamrock Foundation. In total we collected $3,500 in the 50/50 raffle, with half supporting the MSPCC. We’ll be back next week to support the cause again!
