The College of New Jersey, located in Ewing, New Jersey has a student enrollment of approximately 6,580. The department of music has over 100 music majors and minors.

The interest group was named a colony in January 2018 and has worked hard to reach installation day! The colony held fundraisers including Penny Wars, a Chipotle fundraiser, a Family Feud fundraiser, bake sales, and custom lanyard sales in the school of music.

The colony has participated in local service projects. In fall 2018, colony members volunteered time at TCNJ’s music library to help organize the dated collection of 1600+ band pieces. Members organized 127 pieces by putting the parts in score order, cataloguing the parts, re-labelling pieces, and moving pieces from old, falling apart folders into brand new folders.

Although they’ve worked hard, the ladies have also made sure to enjoy each other and share in sisterhood activities too!

Today we are excited to welcome an impressive 34 new members to SAI, as we introduce the Nu Alpha chapter at The College of New jersey. Welcome to SAI, ladies!

A huge “thank you” to all SAI members who came out to welcome the new collegiate chapter! A few ladies had to leave for other commitments but here is a group shot from today. My….has SAI grown today!

Does your chapter have a service project planned in the coming months? Sigma Alpha Iota Philanthropies, Inc. may have some money to give to your chapter to help you realize your project goals! The Chapter Outreach Grant application for college and alumnae chapters is now "open for busines." No amount request is too small.

Does your chapter need $50? $100? $500 (max)?

If your project fits the following criteria, I highly recommend you apply for this Grant to see if you are approved and awarded!
1. The grant must be in support of an outreach project developed and carried out by the chapter for the musical enrichment of the campus or community beyond the membership of SAI.
2. The grant will be for a maximum of $500, and will in no case be for more than half the total cost of the project.
3. No more than one grant will be awarded to a chapter for a particular project.
4. The grant may not be used for scholarships or tuition.

Click the link below to read all about it and to fill out the online application!

Roses, Sisters!

February Fraternity Education (FrEd) Fundamental

Have you ever noticed that it is noted that you have a “life leasehold” of your official badge of SAI? What does that mean? Each initiated member of the fraternity has the privilege of wearing the appropriate badge or insignia as long as that person is a member. Badges of deceased members are to be returned to the National Headquarters for placement in the Memorial Collection. When the badge of a deceased member is returned to National Headquarters, it is placed in the Memorial Collection and held in trust for a descendant. No badges should be passed down to other chapter members. The badge disposition form (available in the Officer Portal Document Library, website, or by contacting National Headquarters) can be filled out and put with your legal papers so that your family will know what to do with your badge. In addition to the badge, your ritual book should also be returned.

In the pictures with this post, you will see that your badges, jewelry, and correspondence are held in high esteem and gratitude at National Headquarters in the Memorial Collection. Your membership is honored and remembered.
