The Zeta Mu chapter of Sigma Tau Gamma at William Woods University was founded on April 24, 2016. They are the third fraternity and seventh Greek organization to be established at William Woods University and have one of the highest recruiting rates on campus. A large percentage of members are athletes and hold themselves to a high academic standard. The Zeta Mu Chapter holds the highest combined grade point average amongst all the fraternities on campus.
Dyllon Harper, Dakota Smith, Alex Severino, and Caleb Bounds are alumni that continue to carry out the principles of Sigma Tau Gamma in their everyday lives. These four brothers make up the first graduating class of the Zeta Mu Chapter, and they still participate in chapter events on an occasion.
In two years, they have operated without a chapter house, and chapter meetings have taken place in the basement of a dormitory on campus. On January 27, 2017, they were granted a house by the residential life office at William Woods University. Although the chapter is still young, they look forward to endeavoring forward on campus.
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.
