ALPHA SIG PARTNERS WITH
AWARE AWAKE ALIVE
Alpha Sigma Phi announced a partnership with its newest
philanthropic beneficiary on July 30. Aware Awake Alive is
a non-profit organization based out of Austin, Texas with a
mission to prevent the senseless loss of young adult lives
from alcohol poisoning.
“We believe that partnering with Alpha Sigma Phi will yield
positive outcomes as this fraternity fosters leadership and
works hard to make the world a better place,” said Lisa
Dow, Executive Director of Aware Awake Alive.
AAA joins RAINN, Humane Society, Big Brothers Big Sisters
and Homes for Our Troops as the five philanthropic
parterns of Alpha Sigma Phi. To learn more, click here.
I’M AN ALPHA SIG
Alpha Sigma Phi will run a new social media campaign
throughout the duration of the fall semester.
The campaign is called “I’m An Alpha Sig” and is based on
the individuals of our great brotherhood. It is our goal to
collect testimonial-style content from our undergraduate
and alumni members to piece together the message of
what makes Alpha Sigma Phi a life-changing experience.
Submissions will be shared on social media, with the
brother’s photo and his quote.

A HISTORIC CELEBRATION
Held exclusively every other year, Elevate - International
Leadership Conference provides current undergraduate and
alumni brothers the chance to see the Fraternity on a
broadened scale. While the majority of the fraternal
experience will come at a local level, this program provides
opportunities to network and share in brotherhood with other
undergraduate men, the alumni who came before them, and
Fraternity Staff. The 2015 edition of Elevate was held at the
Renaissance Columbus Downtown Hotel, where a record
number of brothers convened in what is now the largest single
gathering of Alpha Sigs in the Fraternity’s storied history.
In the Service & Philanthropy Track, men were sent into the
community to make an impact in Columbus. A total of four
groups served the host city of Elevate. Alpha Sig partnered
up with LifeCare Alliance, Keep Columbus Beautiful, Grange
Insurance Audobon Center and the Salvation Army.
A brand new philanthropic
