Thank You, Loyal Donors!
A cocktail reception and banquet were held at the chapter house on March 25 to celebrate the 140th anniversary of the Iota Iota Chapter of Sigma Chi at the University of Alabama. During the anniversary celebration, we also had the pleasure of announcing the Iota Iota Bell Chapter Challenge endowment campaign, which will help our undergraduate brothers reach new heights and continue Iota Iota’s reign of excellence into the future.
What Is the Bell Chapter Challenge?
Iota Iota’s endowment campaign stems from Sigma Chi Foundation’s Thomas Cowan Bell Chapter Challenge, which provides enhanced values-based leadership and scholarship benefits for undergraduate brothers. When compared to non-Bell undergraduate chapters*, Bell recipients averaged a higher overall cumulative GPA, as well as 58% more brothers on the Dean’s List, 63% more brothers active in campus organizations, 84% more brothers within academic honor societies, 400 more hours of community service per year, and $7,400 more raised per chapter for philanthropy.
The goals of the Iota Iota Bell Chapter Challenge include:
