On Saturday, March 5th, the brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon showed their enthusiasm for philanthropy by attending Relay for Life. Relay for Life is one of the biggest fundraisers for the American Cancer Society, and the Relay at Wash U took place at Francis Field. Over 30 active brothers and new members braved the cold and sold donuts at our booth to raise money for cancer research. Through both team and individual efforts, Sigma Alpha Epsilon raised over $8900- the second most of all fundraising teams at Wash U and more than any other fraternity on campus. This was the best philanthropic fundraising effort in our recent history, and we look forward to topping it next year!

On October 30th, the brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon hosted our annual philanthropy event, Dodging Depression. Dodging Depression is a tournament style competition held annually on the South 40 Swamp that aims to raise awareness of the symptoms and causes of clinical depression. The event was by all means a major success, with participation from 24 teams that competed and helped raise $1,375. This year marked the introduction of several new features for Dodging Depression. In addition to partnering with John Burroughs High School in Ladue, this was the first time that Dodging Depression hosted a lecture by Dr. David Clifford of the Washington University Medical School, who spoke about the various causes and symptoms of Depression. In addition, this was also the first time that Student Health Services’ “Stressbusters” helped out by offering free back rubs to students during the tournament.
The event was made possible by the tremendous efforts of Philanthropy chair Sam Knopf, as well as the time and commitment of the whole brotherhood. Our chapter is pleased to have run one of the most successful philanthropy events in our recent history. Phi Alpha!
