Phi Sigma Kappa Alpha Chapter - UMass Amherst

(2)

Our chapter currently has 50 members who embody all that a man Phi Sigma Kappa represents through our cardinal principles. Being a member of such a close knit brotherhood allows our members to to develop countless close friendships and relationships, both personal and professional. First and foremost, all of our brothers are students at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and academics are our number one priority. We have brothers studying numerous fields, from pre-med, to engineering, to journalism, with almost everything in-between. Throughout the year we host numerous social functions varying in size for our brothers and friends. Some annual favorites include: Round Robin night, Homecoming, Halloween Party, Date Parties, Formal, and of course our Ugly Sweater Christmas party. Every member of Phi Sigma Kappa both in our chapter, and nationally is dedicated to raising money for various philanthropic organizations and charities. Our national philanthropy is the Special Olympics which we support throughout the year with several volunteering and fundraising events. We have also taken a special interest in supporting the March of Dimes, an organization that several of our alumni and brothers have a personal affiliation with.

Mission: The Phi Sigma Kappa Creed In the firm conviction that my Fraternity demands of me a life of Faith and Purpose. I hereby solemnly declare My Faith in the wisdom and love of God; in the dignity and worth of my fellowmen; in the strength and beauty of true Fraternity; in the history and future of my Country; and in the traditions and program of my Alma Mater. Henceforward, therefore, it shall be My Purpose to remain forever true to this, my fraternity's faith in me and in turn to preserve and promote courageously and unselfishly the chosen ideals of our mutual affection and common endeavor. To this end I dedicate My Life to the maintenance of this Faith and the pursuit of this Purpose so that the ideals of Phi Sigma Kappa, being embodied in me, may be fulfilled in my Character and Conduct, and be known and honored by all men. By these things I stand.

Yesterday we collaborated with Tri Sigma at UMass Amherst holding a bake sale at the Newman Center. Together we raised $550 to be split between the Newman Center’s student financial aid fund and the medical bills of Jonathan Townsend, a UMass student and brother of Zeta Beta Tau - UMass recovering from meningitis. Great work by everyone involved, proving that even a busy finals week can’t stop our philanthropic efforts!

Brothers Don Fanning, Ed Brown-Leger, Capt. Ron Murphy (the 60's) and friend Bob Marderosian, did a little striper fishing today on Capt. Ron's charter boat the Stray Cat out of Hyannis, Cape Cod.
I'll be on campus tomorrow. Any chance someone can give me a quick update on the house if I stop by? Happy to meet a few of you in person!
