Greek Life at RIT

Hey Everyone,

I’ve been up to a lot since the last time I’ve posted. I was recently offered a bid to join a fraternity known as Sigma Nu. This group is a wonderful group of men that advocates the no hazing policy established by RIT. Sigma Nu was started on the basis of anti-hazing. It’s been a long and exciting journey for me and six other men. We are still candidates, but hopefully brothers soon!

We were given tasks to spread knowledge of Sigma Nu. Some of these tasks included traditions at RIT such as painting of the rock, and duct taping the insignia on the walls, like pictured below.

Fraternities and sororities at RIT are often involved in campus life events; philanthropic events such as “Heel Violence” hosted by Alpha Sigma Alpha, another Greek organization on campus. It was to stomp out domestic violence. I was out of town in Indiana visiting my brother for his birthday when it was held, but I heard it was a complete success!

Sigma Nu also is involved in community service and the candidates recently went to Scottsville Animal Shelter. Anyone can go, so if you have the opportunity, go and volunteer! Walk the dogs, play with the cats, maybe even adopt them!

It’s been an amazing experience overall and I hope to have more with Sigma Nu!

Till next time!

About Dylan

Major: Industrial Design

Hometown: Jackson, N.J.

Why I Chose RIT: I’ve wanted to pursue my dreams of being an Industrial Designer since I was a freshman in high school. When I discovered that RIT had deaf students and one of the best Industrial Design programs in the country, I knew RIT was right for me.

Clubs/Activities: Swim, go to the gym and create art.

Hobbies/Interests: A hobby of mine is restoring old cars. I have a 1966 Ford truck that I drive at home, and I started work on a 1950 Chevy coupe over the summer. It’s a true passion of mine. I'm also interested in motorcycles. 

What I like Best About RIT: The best part of RIT is interacting with deaf and hard-of-hearing people as well as hearing people all on one campus. The opportunities I get at RIT as a result of these interactions are second to none.

Favorite T.V. Show: “Doctor Who,” “Lost,” “Breaking Bad” and “Smallville.”

Fun Fact About Me: I travel frequently. I've been to several countries including Switzerland, Germany, Italy and Portugal, to name a few.
