POSTED: 2012-12-03 :: LAST UPDATED: 2012-12-03, 09:30 ET
Location: Rochester Institute of Technology - Rochester, NY
Designation: Mu Zeta
Re-Chartering Date: December 1, 2012
Installed by: Vice-Regent Duane Dreger (Epsilon Theta – MIT)
Campus Snapshot: The Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) campus is located in Rochester, New York, which is known as the World's Image Center for being the home of Kodak. Founded in 1829, the university has nine different colleges, one of which is the National Technical Institute for the Deaf. The campus has a Greek community with over 5% of its 15,000 undergraduates.
Chapter Profile: The Mu Zeta Chapter, number 259, was originally founded in 1992 as one of the only deaf and hard of hearing chapters on campus. In 2006, the chapter was closed. Since refounding, the colony consistently worked to bring pride and dedication to everything they were involved in, including community service, philanthropic events, intramurals, scholarship and brotherhood.
On December 1, 2012, after two years of hard work, the Mu Zeta Chapter was rechartered, initiating 33 Knights as refounding fathers. The rechartering certificate was presented on the 20th anniversary of the original charter from 1992, which added to the importance of the event. The chartering was a very successful event with nearly 100 people in attendance, including Vice-Regent Duane Dreger.
The Mu Zeta Chapter would like to recognize those in the Center for Campus Life and the Deaf Greek Life Task Force for pledging their support to Sigma Nu at RIT. The chapter would also like to give a very special thanks to their alumni and Alumni Advisory Board, parents, Sigma Nu staff, Vice-Regent Duane Dreger and the High Council for helping to make the Mu Zeta rechartering a success.
