Building Brotherhood Over Meals

Published on January 26, 2023 in WPN Housing

The new year offers promising new opportunities to grow even closer with your Sig Tau brothers and with the campus community. It’s been proven some of the strongest relationships and bonds are formed amongst people who consistently share a meal.  Last fall, the brothers of the Epsilon Chi Chapter at Auburn University employed a new meal service that has added value to their lives and added an extra link to what has kept them connected.

College Chefs is a meal service that focuses on improving the quality of food service in the fraternity and sorority community. College Chefs is supported through a mobile app where members can review the menu, make requests, suggestions, and plan for their meals.

“When choosing a meal service, we were primarily looking for better food, consistency, variety and more organization than what we were finding in the campus dining halls” said Epsilon Chi Chapter President, Matt Manahan, Auburn.

Every Wednesday, the brothers gather in their chapter house’s dining hall for a dinner before their weekly chapter meetings. This simple meal reinforces the ties of brotherhood and creates opportunities for brothers to stay connected amidst the hustle and bustle of campus life.

“It’s definitely helpful for our brotherhood because it keeps a lot of the older guys around. Like I probably wouldn’t be as active in the chapter or as connected with the brothers who have come after me if I didn’t have a meal to stop by the house twice a day,” says Stephen McCartney, Auburn.
