From Our President

Thanks for checking out the Sigma Phi Delta site! We are a fraternity ever so focused on strengthening both our brotherhood and professional ties. Many of the guys here, myself included, have become the greatest of friends over the course of our stay at Marquette- which I primarily attribute to the wholesome and welcoming environment of our Haggerty House, found on 16th and Kilbourn. We have a great mix of guys who love to play sports, videogames, bike, go fishing, get involved on campus with plenty of other clubs, and you name it! In addition to our extra-curricular stuff, almost every Sig Phi active gains co-op, internship, or research experience while at Marquette- which most of the time extends their stay in Milwaukee! By association with Sigma Phi Delta, you will surely have a future employer interested in what you do with your fraternity. 

 

In a typical semester, we are involved in intramurals, brotherhood events, service events,  philanthropy events, socials with other Greek Organizations, and an awesome formal at the end of the year. These activities have definitely kept me both involved and interested in the fraternity and strengthened the brotherhood between the actives and myself! Many of the brothers share the same classes too, which definitely improves our grades with plenty of collaboration among us. 

A little about me:

My Name is John Knox and I am a senior from Geneva, Illinois studying mechanical engineering. I spend most of my time outside of class playing spike ball when it is nice or doing some woodworking back when the machine shop was open. I am currently the Treasurer for ASME here on campus as well. I am passionate about the environment and I want to use my degree to help make a positive environmental impact. I have been trying my best but I cannot keep a succulent alive to save my life, so if you have any tips please let me know.

 

I look forward to seeing you at our O-fest Table or events to talk more about Sigma Phi Delta!
