The Tale of a Thriving House Dog

Some Sigma Nu stories pull at the heartstrings, and this one told by Mark Smith (GA #1505) certainly makes the strongest of us a little sentimental.

We took them in, took care of them, and eventually gave them all away except for one who we kept as the house dog. We named him Rollo. He was a little black and white mutt, but a great dog.

From the Archives: Rope Bridges and Tall Structures Highlight 1978 Island Party

Thank you to Duke Claussen (GA #1436) for sharing his best Sigma Nu memory, of the annual Island Party. He writes, "Back then, during my senior year in 1978, we built a two-story structure over the pool with a rope bridge that spanned the length of the pool. Building the structure was a huge part of the fun. The party was one of the highlights of my time at GT. We reminisced about the fact that no one worried about any injuries and thankfully no one got hurt. In addition, it was one of the best times I can remember as my pledge class was attending our last big party together.”
