Initiation into Sigma Chi is truly not only a ceremony by which new members are created, but is much more. Its meanings are subject to constant interpretation and achievement by those who have earned the honor by striving for it. Further guidance and assistance in those and other areas will continue, and is available to any chapter upon request. There is a definite need for increased knowledge and understanding of the seriousness of purpose of Sigma Chi, and the expectations and commitments made by all of us in experiencing our Ritual and the honor of becoming a member.

Nonetheless, there is a definite necessity for an increased vigilance, awareness, dedication and determination in this matter. There are chapters in Sigma Chi where our Ritual and its purposes and procedures are not adhered to the fullest, and where questionable, contradictory or wasteful activities are taking place during the Pledge Program, I-Week, or Initiation. Past, present and future, its purpose is to be uplifting, motivational, value-setting, and enjoyable in constructive ways.

Its heart is brotherhood, personal association and involvement, and an obligation of every brother to help each other to achieve. It is in the context of positive emphasis and guidance that the following guidelines will apply, and are to be used in determining and conducting any of our activities in the pledging, pre-Initiation and Initiation programs: Pledge Program Guidelines The goals set forth in The Jordan Standard require us, as a Fraternity, to ensure that we allow each student time for his academic responsibilities, a minimum of 6 hours uninterrupted sleep per night, and reasonable campus involvement.

Our prospective members are in school for an education, a learning experience, both in and out of the classroom. Whatever is performed or allowed to happen must be fully consistent with the ideals and the spirit of our Ritual, Ritualistic Statutes, and Governing Laws. The purpose of the program should be to treat the young men as future leaders of our order. If not, it should not be done.

A man does not pledge to be in servitude to an individual brother. He is aspiring to be a member of the Chapter and the Fraternity. Unity, loyalty and devotion will occur from shared experiences and ideas. If instilling humility is the only or major purpose of what is being done, it should not be done. Running stairs while reciting material. Line-ups during which the pledges are placed in front of the chapter in an environment which could reasonably be considered intimidating in nature.

Link systems, or anything similar, used to intimidate the pledge toward improved performance. Yelling and screaming or use of obscenities at pledges in any manner whatsoever. Brothers intentionally mess up the house or room after pledges clean it. Pledges booed and hissed or demeaned when they make a mistake. Pledges being required to perform personal errands or acts of personal servitude for the convenience of brothers. Activities considered personal servitude include, but are not limited to; cleaning, errand running, driving brothers around.

Wearing burlap bags or other embarrassing or uncomfortable garments. Less than six hours of undisturbed time in bed each night at any point during their pledgeship or I-Week.

Excessively loud music played during I-Week and between portions of various ceremonies. Paddle swats. Pushing, shoving or tackling pledges during movement to various events. Pledges dragged onto the floor when awakened. Any violation of Ritual instructions, procedures or Statutes. Brothers using Ritual materials before Initiation.

Stripping a pledge down to their underwear or nothing at all. Branding the pledges with cigarettes or other hot items Forced consumption of alcohol or sharing of alcohol with active brothers as part of a big brother celebration. This includes scavenger hunts. These are a few practices which have been done in the past and there are thousands of others also equally unacceptable.

For any other activities that may not be included above, chapters and members should ask themselves these following questions to consider whether the activity is one that aligns with the spirit of this policy: Would you object to this activity being photographed for the school newspaper or filmed by a local TV news crew? Would you feel comfortable participating in this activity if your parents, professors, or University officials were present?

Would you tell potential recruits or new pledges about the activity that they will go through? Does participation in this activity violate my values or those of Sigma Chi? Does the activity risk emotional or physical harm or abuse? If someone were injured, would I feel comfortable being investigated by the police or an insurance carrier?

Only the brothers in the active chapters can carry out these programs, however. All Sigma Chis have a responsibility to the Fraternity and its future, and to the rest of the Greek system, and to our families, to enhance and contribute to our reputation, and not even remotely create any situation which may damage it.

Sigma Chi must depend on our undergraduate brothers and chapters to perpetuate our Grand Fraternity through Initiation. With this expression of concern and communication, our confidence is placed in you. Evanston, IL

In the fall of the literary society was to elect its Poet and a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon was nominated for the position. He was supported by five of his brothers, but four others James Caldwell, Isaac Jordan, Benjamin Runkle, and Franklin Scobey supported another man who was not a member of the fraternity. Although Thomas Bell and Daniel Cooper were not members of Erodelphian they had aligned themselves with the four dissenting members. The chapter had twelve members total and were evenly divided on the issue. Both sides saw this as a matter of principle and over the next few months their friendships became distanced. Whitelaw Reid , one of the other brothers who supported the Delta Kappa Epsilon member as poet, was the only one to arrive.

The Sigma Chi Ritual

Worthy Consul, benighted candidates who desire admission into our Order. At this point the Magister gives a signal to those assembled and the response should be given in unison as follows: ALL: We all do. It is well, for the sight of our symbols, instead of accomplishing your enlightenment, would confuse your untutored mind s. By the manner of your enlightenment you will be reminded that the progress of true learning is gradual; for your light will increase as you advance in knowledge. Brother Magister, you will remove the blindfold s. The Magister assisted by the guides removes the blindfolds; while this is being done the room is darkened. The Lighting of the Seven Candles The Pro Consul standing at the right of the Consul shall be provided with a lighted taper for the purpose of lighting the candles in the seven-branched candlestick.
