September 3, 2015 – On August 30, 2015, the Zeta Alpha Chapter at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona held their Chartering Ceremony at ASU’s Karsten’s Golf Course and welcomed 65 brothers to Sigma Tau Gamma. Family members of Brothers and alumni joined for the special occasion including Chief Executive Officer Steve Latour, National President Alyx Parker, Illinois ’94, Vice President of the Foundation Shawn Kelley, UW-River Falls ’93, Foundation Trustee Joe Feldhouse, Cleveland State ’57, and Director of Member and Organizational Development Erik Kahl, UW-La Crosse ’07.
Since their installation as a Provisional Chapter in March 2014, the Chapter has maintained a 3.1 average GPA each semester, volunteered an average of 15 hours per person, and raised nearly $4,000 for charitable projects.
The Sunday following the ceremony, brothers from the new Arizona State Chapter convened for a day-long retreat to reflect on their experience as a Provisional Chapter and then begin building a 5 year plan for the Zeta Alpha Chapter. The Arizona State chapter sets a milestone for Sigma Tau Gamma as the 145th chapter installed and begins the Zeta series of chapter designations.
