Announcing Mu Chapter’s 2019 New-Member Class

Mu Chapter has 20 new brothers from spring rush!

Brothers from all classes of Mu Chapter of Sigma Pi came together to make a strong effort during the spring recruitment cycle. Between the multitude of IFC events and informal brother efforts, the men of Sigma Pi met a number of quality prospective brothers.

Over 170 men were brought through our doors, making this an extremely competitive process. On the heels of our extremely successful fall rush process, the brotherhood was buzzing. Collectively, we put together an immense effort throughout the week to identify the quality of man deserving of membership.

So it is with tremendous excitement that we announce our newest class of Pi men: PC ’19. Our 20 newest brothers represent a vast array of interests and experiences. The class includes 17 freshmen and three sophomores, featuring eight guys from New York, four from California, and four from outside the United States (England, Switzerland, South Africa, and Colombia). It is also a very balanced class across academic disciplines: six hotel majors, two AEM majors, two ILR majors, and a mix of CALS and A&S majors. Multiple Cornell varsity athletes and future doctors and engineers are in the class. These men undeniably make us a more diverse and complete brotherhood. We look forward to watching these men grow among our ranks and becoming everything a Sigma Pi man represents.

The welcome of the spring new-member class was capped off with the James H. Keen III annual new member dinner.

Complemented with six new brothers from the fall 2018 pledge class, we have welcomed 26 new members into Mu Chapter during the 2018–2019 academic year!
