Unsequenced_Eric BinderHello Brothers, Alumni, Parents, and Rushees!

Since joining the Sigma Theta Chapter of Sigma Alpha Mu, I have been absolutely enthralled by the brotherhood, philanthropy, and social aspects of the chapter. My time as a Texas Sammy has been incredible; I have created lifelong friendship, important professional relationships, and developed a plethora of important life skills.

Now, as the leader of a chapter that has given me so much, I am excited to give back to the chapter. Whether that means actives, rushees, alumni, or parents, I am determined to maintain and improve relationships extensively. Sigma Theta is the number one Sigma Alpha Mu chapter nationally, and my goal is to continue and grow this status.

I hope you enjoy our new website, and if you have any questions or comments whatsoever, feel free to email me at eric.binder@utexas.edu. Thank you so much!

Fraternally,

Eric Binder, PC ’14

About the Sigma Theta Chapter

The Sigma Theta Chapter of Sigma Alpha Mu (Sammy) was founded at the University of Texas on October 22, 1922. Since that day, we have established ourselves as a strong member of the UT Intrafraternity Council (IFC) and continue to make our presence known on campus.

We have been at our current residence in the heart of West Campus, 2501 Leon Street, since 1963 after moving a few blocks from our previous residence at 1919 Robbins Street. Although the men living at the house change from year to year, there are two men that are the glue that holds our fraternity together. Leon “Daddy” Washington, our former house Chef/Porter, has been a staple of the Sigma Alpha Mu house since our days on Robbins St. Still going strong at 92 years old, he still comes to the house to get to know the current members and tell stories about the good old days. Larry Harris, our current Chef/Property Manager, has been a part of Sigma Alpha Mu for 18 years. He learned all of the old tricks from Leon and has picked up a few of his own over the years. Larry is there for us every day to lend advice and take care of the Sammy house.

Brotherhood at its finest

Attention Sigma Theta Alumni

Dear Alumni,

Unsequenced_Benjamin HausmannMy name is Benjamin Hausmann, and I am the current alumni chair. I wanted to reach out to all of you to explain our new committee. We have completely restructured the alumni committee in the hope that you will be able to better communicate with the fraternity. Each pledge class will now have two representatives on the committee and each committee member will serve for the duration of their time in the fraternity. To see the members of the committee and to find out your representative, click here. We believe this will reduce the turnover and allow you to easily develop a relationship with the fraternity. Each member will be assigned a group of alumni (sorted by last name) and once this member graduates, the freshmen will become the new point of contact for that group. Our goal moving forward is to host an alumni weekend every 2-4 years because we know it can be a hassle to make the trip to Austin annually, especially for those of you who live outside of Texas. Please make sure to contact your assigned point person before you arrive, and we will gladly have someone greet you at the house. Thank you and I look forward to meeting you!

Fraternally,

Ben Haussman (PC ’13), bah1695@gmail.com
