"What you do in life by yourself doesn't mean as much as what you accomplish with a group of people. Sigma Chi was one of the best things that happened to me. I really appreciate what it has done for me in my lifetime and I hope I can continue to give something back."
-Mike Ditka, PITTSBURGH 1961
"Sigma Chi has made my undergraduate career blossom, but more importantly has changed my life. Wherever I go and whatever I do, I will always reflect on Sigma Chi and what it has done for me, and I will always be surrounded by brothers who share that same appreciation."
-Jack "T.J." Nieukirk, WESTERN ILLINOIS 2012
"I am proud to be a Sigma Chi. I have found over the years, in every Sig and Sweetheart I have met, one thread that runs through all of us, that God put us on earth to make the world a little better, and to have some fun in the process."
-Charles C. Gates, Jr., STANFORD 1943
“Proud to be a member of Sigma Chi. I was an Active chapter member from 04-08’. Many of my friends today are WIU Sigs & through the power of the massive Sig nationwide network I regularly make connections through LinkedIn for work to help progress business relationships. Great chapter. Great house. I highly recommend.”
-Brian Pasnik, WESTERN ILLINOIS 2008
"The key to our business is people skills. Sigma Chi helps you build better relationships, to get along with others, and also teaches the importance of honesty and integrity."
-J. Willard Marriot, Jr., UTAH 1954
"Less than a week after being initiated, I deployed to Iraq. My new-found brothers, many of whom were themselves veterans, sent me letters of encouragement and helped me through difficult trials - more importantly, they gave me the support I needed to do what was morally right when it would have been easy to do otherwise. I cannot express the gravity of the debt I owe to Sigma Chi for its role in shaping my character."
-William Steele, WESTERN ILLINOIS 2011
"When I became a Sigma Chi it was great because they were the people I enjoyed being with and I was very proud of the association. It was kind of an instant confidence builder for me - that what I considered the best fraternity on campus had actually wanted me. And I had always been very shy and without a lot of confidence. So it was a really good social experience for me; it was also a social maturation. It was a great benefit."
-David Letterman, BALL STATE 1969
"I came to WIU as a transfer student who wanted to get involved but was skeptical of Greek life. Sigma Chi's ideals and the brothers here disproved all of my preconceived notions and helped me discover myself and become a leader in student government and other organizations on campus. Rushing Sigma Chi will be the best thing you can do to change your life for the better."
-Robby Barlow, WESTERN ILLINOIS 2016
"Membership in Sigma Chi has been one of the most important ingredients in shaping both my business and personal life. We are better equipped by our Sigma Chi membership to be responsible parts of our great country."
-George L. Ball, BROWN 1960
