Historic initiation ceremony brings in 41 new brothers at Alpha Upsilon while boosting active membership to 155 

Nothing says strength in the fraternity world like initiating 41 new brothers while bringing the total chapter active membership to 155.

And that's precisely what happened this month with Alpha Upsilon in this first rush and initiation cycle of a new era for recruiting members.

It also reminded us of the enduring value not just of introducing Sigma Chi to a new generation of men, but of having fathers from a previous generation of Sigma Chi be there when it happens.

"It was very important for me to have my dad there," said new brother Alex Buettgen of his father, Peter Buettgen. "We both even shed a few tears during the ceremony."

It was the culmination of a new independent rush system for Sigma Chi and other fraternities at USC. "Rush couldn't have gone any better," said Rush Chairman Ben Duncan.

"It answered a lot of childhood questions," Alex said of his dad, a Sig from Texas A&M 1989. "He used to tell me stories of Sigma Chi and I always wanted to know more."

Now he does. And so do 40 other new AU brothers.
