May 2018

Spring is underway. By the end of this month, most of you will be done with classes and enjoying your summer. Maybe you’ll go to work; maybe you’ll take summer classes; maybe you’ll spend three months alternating between laying by the pool and standing at the grill. Whatever you decide to do, enjoy it! You passed your finals. You deserve it.

If you’re graduating, I want to congratulate you on behalf of the Fraternity. When you walk across that stage, whichever stage that is, and collect your diploma (or a bill for that library book you lost freshman year), you will be ready to join the workforce and use all that information you’ve accumulated over the last four years. The book learning you did in your classes, the professional development you got from all your jobs and internships and networking events, and the personal growth you experienced during your time at Phi Kap will all prove priceless out here in the real world.

And for all you young alumni wondering about next steps, I want to remind you Phi Kappa Sigma is having its first-ever Alumni Enrichment Program on Saturday, May 12, at my alma mater, Georgia Tech. If you have ever had questions related to life after graduation, from finances to family planning to preparing for retirement to balancing your personal life with your career and your family, you need to attend this program. Register before it’s too late. This program is for Phi Kaps of all ages, though there is added value for you younger alumni whose experience in the real world is limited.

I am also proud to congratulate the men of the Delta Eta Colony at McDaniel College on their imminent chartering. These men have worked tirelessly with headquarters staff and volunteers to prepare to receive the Delta Eta Charter. The Fraternity could not be prouder of this dedicated group of soon-to-be Phi Kaps. Anyone who would like to attend the chartering ceremony should RSVP as soon as possible. A reception will immediately follow the ceremony.

Please continue to encourage your undergraduate brothers to apply for Foundation scholarship awards. The application deadline has been extended to May 15, so take advantage of the opportunity. The scholarship pool has been raised to $88,000 with 80% of that being awarded on a “needs” basis.

Maltese Cross is out! Have you received your copy? If not, there’s a chance we’re missing an up-to-date address attached to your account on Update your account, or contact our office at or by calling (317) 853-1234. This year’s issue focuses on the artistic achievements of Phi Kaps throughout history.
