Submitted by: Fran Taylor
Chapter: Nu Beta
University: Huntingdon College


Woods Lisenby (Nu Beta) will be appointed chaplain of Huntingdon College effective June 1, 2014. Lisenby's appointment will be made in partnership with Bishop Paul L. Leeland of the Alabama-West Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church. In his new role, Lisenby will report directly to College President J. Cameron West and will work closely with staff in the college's student life, admission, and college and alumni relations offices. The chaplain's office will move from its present location to Miriam Jackson Home, which is scheduled for further renovations in the summer of 2014 that will include accommodation for Huntingdon's new Phyllis Gunter Snyder Center for Campus Ministries.

Lisenby serves Prattville First United Methodist Church as the director of contemporary worship. He will graduate from Candler School of Theology, Emory University, in May 2014, and will be commissioned as a provisional elder in the Alabama-West Florida Conference at its annual conference in June. As a student at Huntingdon, where he majored in religion, Lisenby served as a leader in the campus ministries program, was a founding father of Sigma Nu’s Nu Beta Chapter, and was voted by the senior class to receive the Loyalty Award at the 2011 commencement exercises. He is married to Brianna McClure Lisenby, Huntingdon Class of 2013.

"I am pleased that Woods Lisenby will be coming home to Huntingdon to serve as chaplain to our college community," President West commented. "He will build on the foundation laid by Brian Smith over the last several years and also take the campus ministries program into new waters. Woods is a dynamic preacher and worship leader and a highly inspirational teacher. He will be of immense help to the college not only in its spiritual life programming but also in our efforts to continue strengthening relationships with local United Methodist congregations and recruiting United Methodist high school students. I am particularly excited about the work that Woods will be doing with the staff of Montgomery First United Methodist Church to expand worship opportunities for Huntingdon students at Drum Theater on the Cloverdale Campus."

Three Sigma Nu alumni from the Eta Lambda Chapter at University of Cincinnati have launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise awareness for their feature length documentary, “Timekeepers.” The documentary will focus on the study of horology and clock making – and how timekeeping has evolved throughout centuries.

Dustin Muncy, Ben Keener and Mark Bordicks are hoping to raise at least $10,000 to offset filming expenses, such as equipment rental and travel fees. Supporters can pledge donations in increments of $5, $15, $25, $50, $125, $175, $300, $500 or $1000. A donor will only be charged if the campaign reaches its $10,000 goal. The team is also offering incentives to donors based on their level of support. Incentives include a mention in the credits, up to a beautiful anniversary clock.

Muncy, Keener and Bordicks hold degrees in electronic media from the University of Cincinnati. Muncy and Keener are currently employed in media production, Bordicks in PR. This will be the first feature length project for the trio.

Muncy noted, "I am excited to reach out to our friends, family and peers, sharing this journey through time. As a subject that has intrigued me for years, it is hard to believe I am about to live it."

Members of Delta Delta Chapter supporting their chapter's THON
representative during Penn State's annual dance marathon last weekend.

Delta Delta Chapter participated in Penn State's IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon (THON) last weekend, helping the annual event raise $12,374,034.46 for the Four Diamonds Fund.

The funds will be used to assist in paying costly medical bills that insurance providers cannot cover, provide social workers to families, and to help fund cancer research.

This year signaled another significant mark as THON surpassed the $100 million mark for total dollars raised since its inception in 1977.

Together, with their THON pair Volé, the Penn State Ballet Club, Delta Delta Chapter raised $40,739.06, a 216% increase from last year.

This year the chapter chose Charles Jelicks III as Sigma Nu's official THON representative. "Dancing for 46 hours this past weekend has been the best experience of my life," Jelicks explained after a much deserved rest. "The thoughts that were running through my head were, "This is the most amazing event, and it's truly all for these kids."

"Cancer is truly terrible," Jelicks continued. "Everyone has been affected by it, but Pediatric Cancer is just unfair. It's so nice that THON allows these kids to just be kids, and not even think about cancer. I have never in my life been more proud to be a Sigma Nu, or a Penn Stater than I was this weekend."

With momentum from this year's fundraising effort behind them, Delta Delta Chapter is already thinking about THON 2014.

"One day, we'll dance in celebration, until then, we dance for a cure!"

The Delta Delta Chapter of Sigma Nu Fraternity is raising funds for the annual Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon, better known as THON.

This year's THON is scheduled for February 15-17th. The annual event is a 46-hour dance marathon where 708 dancers representing scores of organizations and clubs will take turns standing and foregoing sleep for the duration of the event.

Proceeds from THON benefit the Four Diamonds Fund, a charity organization that raises money for families fighting the difficult battle against pediatric cancer. "When cancer is cured, we will dance for joy. Until then, we will dance for life," said Delta Delta Chapter's THON Chair Denzel Middleton. "The best THON will be the one we won't have to have. THON isn't just one week out of the year, it's a lifestyle."

Each year, Sigma Nu at Penn State does their part to contribute to this worthy cause. While THON unites the entire Penn State community, the event also fosters friendly competition between the participating organizations. Delta Delta Chapter is aiming to compete with another fraternity/sorority pairing that has held the top fundraising spot for 16 consecutive years.

Delta Delta Chapter welcomes donations from other Sigma Nu chapters in their effort to make a difference in the lives of many children and their families. Donations can be made by visiting http://sigmanupennstate.org/, clicking "Donate Now" and following the directions. Every little bit makes a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer.

During chapter every week, our chaplain has a contest called Brother of the Week. This is done by leaving a box at the chapter room door and people put in their vote for who they think has most exemplified the ideals of Sigma Nu and has been the best brother during the week. Then during his report has tallies the votes and announces who it is. The next week he goes to goodwill and gets them a small gift as a little token of appreciation for what they did the prior week. The gift is often ridiculous to give the chapter a laugh and an upbeat feeling during meeting. It is a fun tradition our chapter does and would like to see implemented in other chapters.

The Lambda Eta chapter recently co-sponsored a domestic violence awareness week with the local chapters of the Sigma Psi Zeta and Omega Phi Beta Sororities. The brothers and sisters collected donations towards the battered women shelter and members of the student body designed paper dolls to go on a large banner that hung above the student union. In addition, pamphlets and other forms of information about domestic abuse were distributed. At the end of the week, the brothers and sisters hosted the presentation of a local organization called Stand Up Guys, a group of men dedicated to raising awareness about men's violence towards women while promoting gender equality in the community. All week, the brothers and sisters encouraged the men on campus to sign the Stand Up Guys' pledge to respect the women in their lives and treat them as equals. This pledge, which can be found at www.standupguys.org, is one of the ways the organization is trying to raise awareness and effect positive change. Stand Up Guys is aiming to have 10,000 signatures by 2010, and thanks in part to the Lambda Eta chapter of Sigma Nu and the two aforementioned sororities at the University of Rochester, they are well on their way towards that goal. Before the week was over, the brothers joined Stand Up Guys for an interview with a local news station.

Chapter: Delta Delta
University: Pennsylvania State University

This year, the Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon (THON) raised over 6.5 million dollars towards conquering childhood cancer. The Delta Delta chapter at Penn State raised over 15 thousand dollars towards this great cause.

After months of the chapter canning in the streets and going door to door for pledges, two of our brothers danced for 46 hours straight in the marathon. The dancers in this grueling marathon must stay standing for 46 hours straight without fail. Brothers Aviel Braustein and Pat Thompson feel that this is one of the most rewarding things they have accomplished in their lives so far. The Delta Delta chapter is proud to be a part of this great cause and are planning to work even harder to raise funds next year.

All of the proceeds for THON go to the The Four Diamonds Fund at the Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania. The funds raised go to helping the families of children afflicted with cancer pay for any costs that are associated with their child's treatment.

Chapter: Iota Rho

The Sigma Nus of College of Charleston (Iota Rho) recently completed their second year of hosting the Miss College of Charleston Pageant. This year's pageant theme was, "Oh Yes It's Ladies Night" and the event took place on November 14th, 2007 in downtown Charleston at the Scottille Theatre.

Fifteen of College of Charleston's finest young women competed for the title of Miss College of Charleston. The Miss College of Charleston pageant serves as a gateway to the Miss South Carolina pageant. The pageant had five parts: fundraising, talent, swimsuit, evening gown and an interview. This year's winner was Morgan Helms (biology – med school).

The event raised more than $3,000 which will go to benefit College of Charleston's Habitat for Humanity "Build Blitz" next fall. During CofC Homecoming 2008 students, faculty, and staff will team up with the Charleston community to build a new Habitat home in a two week period. The chapter and the university are hoping to bring the CofC community and the Charleston community closer together by tackling the lack of affordable housing in the area.

Chapter: Gamma Alpha
University: Georgia Tech

The Gamma Alpha Chapter of Sigma Nu is proud to boast of a banner fall semester. We started the semester by moving into a brand new $4 million house. We had to overcome the challenge of only having a week to move-in before rush started. However, by the end of rush week, we had our second most successful rush (since the early 90s) with the acceptance of 23 bids. By the end of our candidate process we inducted 20 new brothers. Upon the induction of our new members, we reached our 2000th initiated brother (the last chapter number in this candidate class was 2006). Our chapter size is now somewhere between 95-100 strong. In addition to this Gamma Alpha turned 111 years old on November 25th, 2007.

On a side note, we had 6 of our fall intramural teams make it to the fraternity play-offs (Ultimate-Frisbee, Soccer, Bowling, Billiards, Sand Volleyball, and Volleyball). Our Billiards team won first place for All Fraternities, which was our second intramural team to do so in 2007. The other intramural team to do so was our 3-on-3 basketball team, which did so in the spring of 2007.
