With a legacy spanning over a century, we recognize the importance of digitizing our heritage and ensuring that it remains accessible to generations to come.

Our Current Endeavors
- Chronicling Our Heritage: Sigma Pi is utilizing various channels, including The Emerald and Owl Talk Podcast, to showcase unique elements of our history, and will continue exploring avenues that increase the historical knowledge of our membership. We are currently in the process of creating an inclusive book that encapsulates the first 25 years of the Fraternity’s history.
- Digital Archives Preservation: We remain dedicated to safeguarding our digital archives, including The Emerald. Through our partnership with HistoryIt, we ensure these invaluable documents remain accessible for all.
- Photographic Digitization: To enrich our digital archives, we’ve enlisted the help of interns who have digitized over 5,000 photos from the Fraternity’s historical archives. This effort significantly enhances our historical repository.
- Digital Museum: Leveraging these digitized materials, we have partnered with HistoryIt to create an immersive digital museum. This platform will feature over 400 items, in addition to existing issues of The Emerald, providing an extensive look into our Fraternity’s history.
- Digital Museum Expansion: We aspire to continually expand our digital museum, adding more exhibits, interactive features, and multimedia content to provide a comprehensive and engaging experience for all those interested in exploring our rich history.
- Documentary Exploration: We are exploring the possibility of producing a documentary that delves deep into the history of Sigma Pi, featuring interviews with prominent figures within our Fraternity, such as Past Grand Council officers, volunteers, and staff.
- Personal Histories: Our aim is to capture more in-person interviews with individuals who have played pivotal roles in our development. This approach will offer a personal and captivating perspective on our journey.
