Brother Harbaugh will be speaking to Alumni, Undergraduates and Rushees about his life as a NASA Astronaut and the influence of Sigma Chi in his life.
The Foundation president and CEO, Gregory J. Harbaugh, is the Foundation’s executive officer based at the Peterson International Headquarters in Evanston, Ill. Graduating from Purdue with a BS in Aeronautical & Astronautical Engineering, he then received his Masters from the University of Houston where he soon became a NASA Astronaut. Greg Harbaugh has received many prestigious awards namely The Significant Sig Award. We are happy to have him for our Winter Rush Week.
The Sigma Chi Foundation is a charitable and educational tax-exempt organization, separate and independent from the Fraternity, whose express purpose is to serve as an educational funding resource for the undergraduate and graduate student members of the Sigma Chi Fraternity. Through leadership initiatives such as Horizons, the Balfour Leadership Training Workshop, the Balfour Fellowship and the Cornerstone Mentor Program, the Sigma Chi Foundation is preparing our young men to be the value-centered leaders to guide us in the 21st century.
Sigma Chi Career Network on sigmachi.com – Jobs for Sigs
Sigmachi.com is the Fraternity’s membership network site where Sigs can stay connected and update their contact information.
One of the new features is the Sigma Chi Career Network where Sigs can post and search jobs. These jobs can only be searched and viewed by Sigs on sigmachi.com. In addition to this feature, resumes can be uploaded to individual’s profiles. Those resumes are searchable which can help sigs find brothers looking for work that are qualified.
I encourage all of you to check it out and begin taking advantage of this new resource. If you have a job that you are posting on LinkedIn, please post on on sigmachi.com.

On February 2, 2009 Gordon Gee dedicated the Tim Michael Study Room at the chapter house. It was a great event and we are all very thankful to both Gordon Gee for taking the time to recognize Brother Michael for his gracious donation. We would also like to recognize Brothers James Howe and James Smiley for their daily dedicated effort to make this major renovation a reality.
Below is a quick little video I put together of the event.
