    Homecoming Weekend is October 12-15, 2017

     

    That time of year has come around again! October 13-15 is Homecoming weekend, and you know what that means -- The Zeta Lambda reunion tailgate will be on the TU campus at Jackson Common (our usual spot for the past five years) on Saturday 14th and will start four hours before kickoff. TU will announce kickoff time on October 2.

    Brother Doug Redmond has graciously agreed to again host a happy hour starting at 5pm on Friday 13th. Last year’s happy hour was awesome and this year should be no different.

    Hope to see you there!!

     

     

    Upcoming Events

    Zeta Lambda is returning to the University of Tulsa!

     

     We are proud to inform you all that after 12 years of dormancy, the time to re-establish the Zeta Lambda chapter of Sigma Nu Fraternity has finally arrived. Starting in January of 2017, the General Fraternity will have staff on the ground, and will begin recruiting for the Spring 2017 Candidate Class of the Zeta Lambda Colony.

     

    For those who I have not yet had the chance to meet, my name is Will Deviney, and I will be serving as the site manager for the Zeta Lambda recolonization. I recently graduated from the University of Idaho in May 2016, where I was a member of the Delta Omicron Chapter of Sigma Nu. Immediately following my graduation, I joined the fraternal staff as an Expansion & Recruitment Consultant and have just recently wrapped up my first expansion project at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (Delta Eta).

     

    I am truly honored and excited to be given the chance to restore this historic chapter at an equally historic institution. With alumni assistance from both the Zeta Lambda Chapter and Oklahoma State’s Epsilon Epsilon Chapter, this is sure to be a very successful recolonization. During my time in Tulsa, I will continue following up with recruitment and colony development updates on a weekly basis. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at any time.

     

    Fraternally,

    HOMECOMING WEEKEND IS OCTOBER 21-23!

     

    We will be having our annual reunion/tailgate on the TU campus prior to the game vs. Tulane Green Wave on Saturday (Kickoff is at 2:45PM). There will be a happy hour on Friday evening at the home of brother Doug Redmond. Linde Oktoberfest is the same weekend; let's reclaim our historic Sigma Nu spot, left of the main stage! Many prizes will be given, including a raffle for your chance to win one of two footballs signed by TU players and coaches.

    At 10:30AM on Saturday, we will hold the reunion/tailgate at Jackson Common, across the street from the house that once stood at 564 S. Gary Pl. Other details will be posted in due course.

    Food will be provided at the tailgate. We ask for your donation to help cover the cost.

    Please let us know if you will be there; send me a PM, post here or email to jeremy-edwards@utulsa.edu. We need an RSVP so that we can have a reasonably accurate head count

    THIS IS A VERY EXCITING TIME FOR OUR CHAPTER!
    I call on all brothers to come out and celebrate the recolonization of Zeta Lambda! Four years ago I told you that "Sigma Nu will breathe again at TU." That has become a reality thanks to many brothers and spouses who have helped out. Now is your chance!
