There are just a few things that we would like to highlight in the Newsletter:
On page 2, we have a recap of the previous year and the current state of the house, as written by our Eminent Commander, Johnny Geoghegan
On page 4, we have an announcement about our upcoming fundraising campaign, as written by Alumnus Brother Ricardo Armendariz
On page 5, we have a tribute to Brother Dale von Dohren, who entered Chapter Eternal on July 18th, kindly written by his wife, Toni.
Also on page 5 is the Alumni Updates section for everything that has been going on with our Alumni base for the past year. If you would like to submit a piece of news for the next newsletter, (i.e., job changes, marriages, birth announcements, fulfilling life long dreams, etc.) please email me at
On page 6, the Chapter has included an article about the start of an exciting campaign, a movement to interview every single Alumnus Brother in order to get a more complete picture of the house. Check that out, as it will be something that will preserve the legacy of the Chapter for all decades to come.
On page 7, there is a list of our seniors graduating this semester, and what they hope to accomplish in their immediate futures.

The second document attached (in the email sent out earlier tonight) is a chance for all alums to update their contact information, as well as pick their preferences for future delivery of the newsletter (i.e., mail, email, both), if you could please fill out that form, save it and send it back to me, we will be able to streamline the process in the future.
Please contact Tim Ramsell (info below), Alumni Relations Chairman, with any questions pertaining to the newsletter or event calendar.

With that said, thank you for reading and you're invited to join us and ride our recent chapter success!

Join us at the SJSU Homecoming Game!
Have your Sigma Nu & Spartan Pride on full display in the tailgate lots before the game! Our tailgate set up will be better than ever, and we expect the biggest Sigma Nu Spartan’s crowd in a long, long time. Then, cheer on the Spartans in a crucial WAC match-up and homecoming game vs. the Utah State Aggies.

Saturday, October 13th 2012 at 10am PT
The game starts at 1pm!

We would like to get all available alumni brothers to the homecoming game, as the Stanford tailgate was rocking! The energy and pride from SJSU fans was felt throughout the tailgate field and in the stadium. Great times were had as Zeta Iota rallied hours before the game to reconnect and back Spartan Football in their game against big rival Stanford.
