Merry Christmas from our big family to yours!
The Iota Xi Chapter of Sigma Chi, located at George Mason University.
The Iota Xi Chapter of Sigma Chi, located at a George Mason University, is held together tightly by the lifelong bond of brotherhood. We pride ourselves on the diversity of the brothers in our chapter, with ranging interests from extracurricular activities, academics, and cultural identities that make this chapter a very special place. Our chapter has a strong commitment to philanthropy and fundraising. The brothers of Iota Xi work to create a better community through public service. Some of our projects include the sponsorship of Adopt A Highway, and our annual Derby Days event which raises money for The Huntsman Cancer Foundation. While we are dedicated to bettering the community, ourselves, and George Mason University as a whole, we are still social fraternity. Throughout the year, our Social Chair plans many themed events, mixers, BBQ's, and socials. With so much to do, weekends are never boring. Our brothers make it a priority to balance both schoolwork and fun. Sigma Chi's core values are friendship, justice and learning and the Iota Xi chapter embodies these values in everything that we do.
Mission: The Sigma Chi Fraternity is a brotherhood with roots in the collegiate experience that engenders a lifelong commitment to strive to achieve true friendship, equal justice and the fulfillment of learning as part of our overall responsibilities to the broader communities in which we live.

They're the guys who will be my groomsmen, the godparents to my children, and inevitably the people giving eulogies in my honor. They are the men who bring out the best in you, and are your yes-men when it's appropriate, but still hold you accountable when it's not. Iota Xi will always have my heart."
