Congratulations to Beta-Rho Chapter of the University of Florida! Founded on April 9, 2016, the chapter is celebrating its first full semester operating as a SPD Chapter this fall. They have pinned their first pledge class—the first new recruits Sigma Phi Delta has had in the state of Florida in quite some time. We look forward to seeing this chapter—and others—continue to grow!
Organizations will participate in Big/Little games, during which 10 teams of two people from each of the participating organizations will compete in four relay races. The organization with the most points at the end all the races will win 10% of the money raised for their philanthropy, and the rest will be split among Sigma Phi Delta’s philanthropy (FIRST Robotics) and Alpha Sigma Phi’s philanthropy (Big Brothers Big Sisters of America).
At 91 years old, Henry “Harry” Vogel’s (Theta Chapter, University of British Columbia) Sigma Phi Delta days were very long ago, but that doesn’t mean he has forgotten about them. We caught up with Harry from his home in Courtenay B.C., Canada. He was kind enough to answer a few questions about his time at Sigma Phi Delta and share his story with us in his own words.
Find out what advice Harry has for young engineers.
For Raymond Waszkowski ’67 (Iota Chapter), the Sigma Phi Delta experience didn’t end at graduation. His fraternity connections came in to play at a critical time in his career, and now, nearly 50 years later, he’s still celebrating the lifelong benefits of membership in our Fraternity—most recently at a reunion with 20 fellow alumni in Marco Island, Fla. this past April.
Learn how Sigma Phi Delta changed his life.
The past decade has been one of tremendous success for Sigma Phi Delta, thanks to our devoted alumni who continue to support our efforts. We’ve grown from just eight active chapters in 2000 to 25 today.
Will we reach another major milestone this fall?
