Clarkson Fraternity Awarded with International's Highest Honor

The Sigma Chi International Fraternity of Oxford, Ohio, has recognized its Clarkson University chapter with its highest undergraduate award for excellent performance in operations and programming for the 11th time in 18 years.

Clarkson's Iota Zeta chapter of Sigma Chi was one of 32 chapters across the United States and Canada to be awarded the Peterson Significant Chapter Award. In recognition of this achievement, the chapter will receive a plaque and a $100 educational grant.

"The Clarkson chapter of Sigma Chi is a group of extremely responsible and committed men and I am very pleased that they have once again been recognized by their national organization," said Jason C. Libby, associate dean of students for Student Organizations at Clarkson. "They serve as an example of the positive influence of fraternities and sororities at Clarkson."

Among their projects, the fraternity raised more than $6,498 for the Children's Miracle Network and other charities and performed over 1,000 community service hours this past academic year.

Sigma Chi International Fraternity was founded in 1855 at Miami University (Ohio) and has over 215 chapters throughout the United States and Canada. The Clarkson chapter was founded in 1988.
