At the end of March, the Sigma Tau Gamma Fraternity Board of Directors made the unprecedented decision that all spring 2020 associate members of Sigma Tau Gamma are now official collegiate members of the organization. This decision came after continuous discussions with campus partners and monitoring recommendations from government officials regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of COVID-19, many of those associate members may not have completed the Ritual of Initiation.
This September, spring 2020 associate members will have the opportunity to take the next step in their brotherhood journey and participate in the first-ever virtual Ritual of Initiation. This virtual ceremony is an option for those chapters that may exceed the state, local, or CDC guidelines for in-person gatherings on their campuses. The spring 2020 associate class initiation report must be submitted and approved by September 30, 2020. Once approved, membership materials will be sent to the chapter’s address on file.
Virtual Ritual of Initiation Dates
- Sunday, September 27, 7:20 PM EDT
- Wednesday, September 30, 7:20 PM EDT
