Chapter Leadership Update

Winter 2023
The Great Hall is getting a great new floor!
Mark Wolcott ’83, Gary Grossfeld ’86, and Mark Krause ’85 enjoy the Homecoming tailgate action.

We continue to make progress on many fronts. Our brothers are working diligently to prepare for the important spring rush period in late January 2024. They’ve been consulting with the Gamma Theta Property Association and Sigma Nu National to ensure we maximize our count of new brothers.

A new slate of Gamma Theta Property Association executive committee officers was elected at the September 30 GTPA annual meeting during Homecoming Weekend. Effective November 1st, 2023, our new President is Jeff Woodring ’93, Treasurer Marc Rosenthal ’91, and Secretary Greg Greene ’92. Retiring from the Executive Committee are Nick Carino ’69 Secretary, Ed Reiss ’69 Treasurer, and Bob Linden ‘71 as President. Many thanks and much appreciation to Nick, Ed and Bob for their years of tireless service for our chapter, and a job well done. If you are interested in contributing as a member of our Executive Committee (we are still looking for a new Vice President) or alumni Advisory Board, please reach out to Jeff at

Homecoming also included a fun postgame alumni reception. You can check out the pix to see who was there.

We’ll use one word to describe June’s Cornell reunion. Wow! Our Lodge was full of life, starting with the class of ’93 and early ’90s brothers, who filled the house for the weekend, many staying in their old rooms. They arranged a Friday-night dinner at the house, Saturday-morning brunch, Saturday-afternoon party in the backyard, and then a bonfire to finish things off. That’s how to do a Reunion, and you can check out some great pix in our Reunion photo gallery. Plus, it was great to see so many of the class of 2018 return for their five-year Reunion, plus strong turn-outs from the classes of 1973, 1988, and 1998, among others. Start thinking now about next summer’s Cornell Reunion.

The transformation of our Lodge continues. With the windows project complete, we turned our attention to the Great Hall and other common areas. We are happy to report we met our fundraising goals for this initiative, raising a total of $145,000, anchored by a dollar-for-dollar match by Glenn Dallas ’58 for the first $50,000 in alumni giving. Work was completed this past summer to install new flooring in the Great Hall, library, and staircase landings, plus to finish the reflooring of all bedrooms, which we started a few years ago. We are now making an assessment of the next steps in our renovation effort. Check out the photo tour of our house from this past summer. Many thanks to Glenn and all alumni who contributed!

We have set a great foundation for our undergraduate brothers, and we want to ensure they have the best experience possible, as we all had. We will have an operating-budget gap until we have a larger total brotherhood numbering close to 50. Our Building a Bridge effort seeks to raise $100,000 during the 2023–2024 school year to offset that gap. This is our single greatest financial need, and we have raised $34,650 against our goal through January 22, 2024. You can join other alumni today by paying your dues and, if possible, by making an additional Building a Bridge contribution to the Gamma Theta Property Association or by making a donation to our Fall Creek Leadership Foundation. Thank you to all alumni for your continued support of our chapter!

Where Are They Now? The Reunion Year ’3 and ’8 Classes of Sigma Nu

It was great to see so many alumni return to our chapter house during Cornell Reunion in June, 2023. The class of '93 and early 90's brothers literally filled every room in the house, and our house was full of fun and memories including our alumni receptions, Friday night dinner, Saturday brunch and backyard fun on all days. We had wonderful turn-outs from the class of 2018 for their fifth Reunion, 1973, 1988, 1998 and other classes. You can check all the pix to see who was there in our Reunion photo gallery. Plus, check out these Reunion year profiles of our alumni.

Next up is Cornell Homecoming September 29-30.
