“Or perhaps, to confess that you yourself are worried and frightened? You need your friends, Harry. As you so rightly said, Sirius would not have wanted you to shut yourself away.”
― Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
Our social committee plans events throughout the year to foster fellowship and have fun. These events include hayrides, Lansing Lugnuts games, Grand Rapids Griffins games, riverboat cruises and much more!
Inter Chapter Relations
“We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we take a little of each other everywhere.”
― Tim McGraw
One of the most important aspects of Phi Sigma Pi’s brotherhood is that it extends beyond the current members of our chapter at Michigan State University. The Interchapter OCOs work to ensure that Brothers who are members of chapters at different universities feel welcome at Michigan State and know what we are up to.
The OCOs often organize events with other Phi Sigma Pi chapters in the Great Lakes Region, including a recent trip to Uncle John’s Cider Mill with CMU’s Gamma Mu Chapter. Beta Sigma has also participated in Gamma Xi and Alpha Lambda’s Philly Cup in Philadelphia, PA for the past two years, and is the annual host of the Interchapter Beta Sigma Broomball Tournament for the Help a Willing Kid Foundation.
“The Quest stands upon the edge of a knife. Stray but a little, and it will fail, to the ruin of all. Yet hope remains while the Company is true."
― Galadriel, Lord of the Rings
One of the most important aspects of Phi Sigma Pi’s brotherhood is that it extends beyond the current members of our chapter at Michigan State University. The Alumni committee works to ensure that Brothers who are graduated remain an integral part of Phi Sigma Pi at MSU.
This includes keeping in touch with alumni, and encouraging their attendance at Phi Sigma Pi events. It also involves educating initiates and new Brothers about alumni, and how their accomplishments have helped to shape the Chapter as a whole. The alumni committee also organizes special events specially geared towards alumni.
“If you don't tell your story, someone else will.”
The main purpose of the Public Relations Committee is to create awareness of Phi Sigma Pi within the community of Michigan State University and to campaign for prospective members.
The number one event for this committee is to plan the meet nights for the new rush class at the beginning of each semester. Their job is to maximize the number of students that hear about Phi Sigma Pi and increase the number of Perspectives that come out to the meet nights. Activities include flyer-ing and chalking campus, as well as writing and sending out letters to prospective members.
