A Few Brothers Have Spoken.

You answered five brief questions in a survey last month. Here is what you said:

 What is your fondest memory of being part of Sigma Nu?

  • I ran track.... so I had a GT family...Gamma Alpha gave me another family....
  • Friendships developed
  • Hanging out with a few friends.
  • Working together for a common cause, whether it was collecting money for a charity or building the swimming pool. The talents possessed by the multi-talented brothers at that young age was unbelievable.
  • I would have missed getting to know a bunch of wonderful people, who live far from where I grew up.


What are the top 3 things you gained from your Sigma Nu experience?

  • Friends, Advice on campus things, Continuing relationships
  • Friends, Brothers, Pool construction
  • Friends, a sense of belonging, and confidence.
  • Business contacts, Social contacts, Character development
  • Friends. Maturing. Lessons in how to deal with people.
  • 1. Understanding others from different backgrounds and learning new talents. 2. Respect and how to work with others to accomplish group goals. 3. Never give up, quit, or surrender. Stay motivated to achieve your goals.


How would your life be different today if you had never joined Sigma Nu?

  • Not as fulfilling
  • Probably would not have been as successful with respect to raising our family and managing others in my engineering and business profession.
  • I would have missed getting to know so many wonderful people, who live far from where I grew up.


Share an update (family, career, hobbies, other interesting news) for possible publication in an upcoming mailing.

  • I recently went to GATHERING OF SNAKES in Holmes Beach... with brothers from the sixties...I encourage GA folks from other eras to do it…
  • Older son John Martin is a Sigma Nu from NC State. I am retired to the beach
  • Continue to physically exercise every day. Continue to exercise my mind by investing and reading scientific articles. Recently had to stop playing tennis which I did for 40 years.
  • I have recently semi-retired from a career of delivering babies. I am enjoying more free time, and 8th grandchild due soon. My father graduated from Tech in 1937, coming from a farm in Illinois. I needed to leave Tech after one year, in order to insure that my GPA would be high enough to get into medical school. Too much brilliant competition at Tech!! This was before grade inflation.


As an alumni association, we strive to keep you connected with the Gamma Alpha chapter long after graduation. What could we do to encourage you to become more active in the association? Perhaps by hosting more fun events? Any other advice?

  • More local events
  • Hosting 'more fun events' sounds good.
  • Age and distance keep me away from being physically connected to the chapter; however, I normally attend homecoming and visit the house where I meet Sigma Nus from my era. Keep the Homecoming activities at the house informative and fun for those who are returning. Lastly I would be interested in Gamma Alpha's accomplishments and honors bestowed on the chapter.
