Letter From the Prior

To the Brothers, Alumni, Parents, and Rushees of Texas Sammy:

Let me be the first to say that the Sigma Theta Chapter of Sigma Alpha Mu is more than just a social club- we are a brotherhood that has had a strong presence at the University of Texas since 1922. Our fraternity has shaped friendships and lives, teaching members the skills necessary for success beyond their collegiate experiences. I am proud to call myself a member of Texas Sammy, and organization that fosters the values of humanity and comradeship.

TScreen Shot 2018-07-15 at 11.29.44 PModay, perhaps more than ever, college fraternities play a relevant role in shaping the lives of young men, and in the last year and a half Sigma Alpha Mu at the University of Texas has shaped my identity in unimaginable ways. Leading such a capable and passionate group of men this year, I am confident that we will see growth in all aspects of the fraternity. Our Council is excited for what’s ahead, and our active members are taking on leadership roles with renewed vigor. I look forward to not only upholding our reputation as a nationally recognized chapter of Sigma Alpha Mu, but also to advancing the accomplishments of Sigma Theta by creating a stronger vision for the future.

I hope you enjoy our website, and if you have any questions or comments, I can be reached at (214) 450-7479 or via email at victorsandoval@utexas.edu.

Fraternally,

Victor Sandoval, PC ’17

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. Even after his unfortunate passing, Daddy’s legacy looms large over all members of this fraternity, past and present. Larry Harris, our current Chef/Property Manager, has been a part of Sigma Alpha Mu for 22 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
