NATIONAL NEWS - SAE TO ELIMINATE PLEDGE TRAINING PROGRAMS
FOUNDER'S DAY ANNOUNCEMENT 2014: Fraternity Bans Initiations After Hazing Deaths. At least 10 members of the popular Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity have died in hazing, alcohol or drug incidents at SAE events since 2006—more than any other fraternity in the United States, according to data compiled by Bloomberg
LOCAL CHAPTER RESPONDS: Simon Tracy is the former president and current member of SAE. He hadn't heard the numbers from Bloomberg, labeling his fraternity the deadliest in the nation with 10 deaths since 2006.
Over the last few years, SAE has established a Career Development Program that has become the envy of every other fraternity at Gettysburg. Many alumni brothers have returned to the House to share their SAE/college memories and thoughts about finding a job in “the real world.” Jeff Siegfried (’81) very graciously sponsored previous career dinners, both of which were a tremendous success (see link here) and the active brothers have partnered with the college career development office to provide even greater resources for the seniors looking to the future.
The event is scheduled for Saturday, March 21st beginning at 4:00PM. The Alumni Career Dinner is an opportunity for the active brothers to meet, network and learn from alumni brothers who have “been there, done that.” It’s a chance for you to share your memories of the House, G-burg and your experiences in the job market since graduation. Representatives of the College Center for Career Development also attend the catered dinner held in the House.
