I must say I agree with one of the guys (he is from the Alabama Chapter) that
is helping back the purchase/renovation loan for the Epsilon Upsilon House.
"...I am as surprised by the lack of response of the ASU Sigs as I am by
amount of individual pledges from those who did..."
Right now I have managed to get the final amount needed for the loan guarantee
down to just $32,000 remaining to be covered. Of the total amount
covered 13 ASU Sig's have stepped up to help as have 13 Sig's from Chapters
other than Epsilon Upsilon. The telling thing however is that ASU Sig's
are only covering $140,100.00 of the loan while non-ASU Sig's have stepped up
to cover $209,300.00. Makes me feel like I am wasting my time to help
ensure a Sigma Chi legacy at ASU. Especially when four ASU Sig's that said
they were stepping up did not meet their commitment and have now left us high
If any of you can help with any part (even if it is just 32 guys stepping up
to cover $1,000.00 each) of covering the deficit in loan guarantees please
contact me immediately by either email or call me at 480-610-8234.
For the record here are the names (and chapters) of those that have helped.
