Chapter History

The Theta Chapter of Sigma Tau Gamma at Northwest Missouri State University was re-established on March 9, 2013. Recruitment & Growth Coordinators, Josh Floyd and Alex Williams, arrived in late January to begin the organization and recruitment of the chapter. The original chapter was on campus for over 70 years.

One of the characteristics that set Sigma Tau Gamma apart from many other fraternities is the process of recruitment which was observed by Brothers Floyd and Williams during the initial recruitment process. They came to campus and after completing some basic organizational necessities they began the first step of recruitment.

The Theta Chapter has been heavily involved in campus and community immediately after its initial founding. The most successful event the Theta Chapter was involved in was Big Brothers – Big Sisters of Nodaway County’s Bowl for Kids’ Sake. Theta Chapter was also recognized by Sigma Kappa Sorority and Phi Mu Fraternity as the most inspirational chapter as well as the fraternity that shows the most brotherhood on campus.

This chapter history allows one to take only a brief glimpse into accomplishments and occasional challenges faced by Theta Chapter, but the gentlemen at Northwest Missouri State University have established Sigma Tau Gamma as an elite fraternity on campus as well as nationally among other Sigma Tau Gamma chapters.

Chapter Funds

A Chapter Fund is a restricted account from the Sigma Tau Gamma Foundation. In this case, the restriction is that the funds and earnings on the investment of the funds may be used only for a particular chapter, meaning that if you donate to your chapter’s fund, it may only be used for your chapter.

Chapter Funds may be used to:

  • Award scholarships based on academic and leadership criteria
  • Technology grants for purchase and upgrade of chapter computer technology
  • Educational facility grants to the selected chapter
  • Leadership education grants for participation in institutes, seminars, and conventions.

The Foundation manages the fund. This management includes fund accounting, investing, and preparing required reports for the Internal Revenue Service. The policy of the Foundation Board of Trustees is to involve chapter alumni association leaders in the creation of criteria, formation of program priorities and selection of grant recipients.
