POSTED: 2012-05-01 :: LAST UPDATED: 2012-05-01, 10:00 ET
Location: Missouri State University – Springfield, MO
Designation: Theta Sigma
Re-Chartering Date: April 28, 2012
Installed by: Vice Regent Joe Francis (Oklahoma State)
Campus Snapshot: Founded in 1905, Missouri State University is located in the southwest corner of Missouri and is the state's second largest institution of higher education. The Greek community includes 15% of the 19,000 undergraduate population.
Chapter Profile: Originally founded in 1972, the Theta Sigma Chapter, number 179, closed in 2004. Since refounding, the colony consistently worked to bring pride and dedication to all aspects of regaining their charter, including community service, philanthropic events, intramurals, scholarship and brotherhood.
On April 28, 2012, after two years of hard work, the Theta Sigma Chapter was rechartered, initiating 33 Knights as refounding fathers. The chartering was a successful event with nearly 200 people in attendance, including Vice Regent Joe Francis and past Regent Mike Long.
The Theta Sigma Chapter owes much of its success to Scot Franson and the Theta Sigma Alumni Advisory Board for pledging their support to Sigma Nu at Missouri State. Assistant Director of Student Engagement for Fraternity and Sorority Life, Andrea Weber, Dean Mike Jungers and, Vice President for Student Affairs, Dr. Earle Doman were also pivotal in the return of Sigma Nu to campus and the colony’s ability to charter. The chapter is thankful for the additional support of the alumni, parents, University staff and advisors, as well as the Sigma Nu staff, Vice Regent Joe Francis and the entire High Council for helping to make the Theta Sigma rechartering a success.
