Shamrock Philanthropy with Kappa Delta Sorority
This February, SigEp took part in Kappa Delta’s Shamrock philanthropy. Shamrock is an annual event that raises money to donate to ‘Prevent Child Abuse America’. PCAA is an organization that works nationally to prevent child abuse in households through services like sexual safety and child sexual abuse prevention, and peer abuse and bullying prevention. Every year Kappa Delta organizes a number of events throughout a week in February for people to participate in, to support this cause. To partake in these events, SigEp along with other fraternities on campus, donated money to PCAA. The Shamrock events included a dodgeball tournament in McAfee gymnasium and a small carnival for local children in the University Ballroom. This is always a fun philanthropy to be involved in for the events, and its purpose!
SigEp Takes Second in Basketball IM
Though SigEp won 1st place in the fraternity division championship after taking down Sigma Nu at Lantz arena (46-24), Illinois Nu unfortunately had to settle for second place after losing to team ‘Slime Ball’ in the campus-wide championship.
SigEp trailed against their opponent for most of the two periods of the IM game, and made a late second period attempt at a comeback. IL NU eventually cut down their deficit to 7, losing 62-55 by the end of the game. Brother Brody Donsbach still credits his team’s shots in being still wet tho.
At this time, Illinois Nu hopes that no one reading this post or anyone with ties to the EIU community has been affected by the coronavirus outbreak. With that being said, both EIU and SigEp are taking safety precautions in cancelling events that are planned for the remainder of the semester and social distancing. Events that are being cancelled include: Just A Mile, and the annual Parent & Alumni banquet. It is with great disappointment that we have to take these measures, but at this time safety is our top priority in fighting this pandemic that is COVID-19. SigEp wants to ensure a safe and clean environment for it’s members and associates. So we encourage, if you have not already, to educate yourself about this virus and to take measures appropriately. We hope that everyone reading this post and the people that are close to them are being safe during this time. Please remember: as long as you do your part now, the safer everyone else is in the long run.
