THE EPILOG A PUBLICATION FOR ALUMNI OF OKLAHOMA BETA t SIGMA PHI EPSILON FALL 2015 Sigma Phi Epsilon at the University of Oklahoma Announces $2.5 Million Red Door Renaissance Campaign • More an $1.25 Million Committed • Now Is Your Chance to Make a Difference in Oklahoma Beta's Future I t is our honor and privilege to announce to you the next step in our commitment to excellence at Oklahoma Beta. Over the last year, a number of dedicated alumni and AVC members have been working diligently to position us for the future. Today, we proudly announce the Red Door Renaissance Campaign. In the coming weeks, you will receive a brochure that outlines our vision for Sigma Phi Epsilon at the University of Oklahoma. It is a bold plan and large undertaking, but one that is necessary for maintaining our role of leaders in the Greek community at OU. Thanks to the support of our Alumni and Volunteer Corporation, our brothers have been fortunate to live in a safe and comfortable home for many years. While Oklahoma Beta arguably holds the best location on campus, other fraternity renovations and off- campus housing options have outpaced what we are able to offer members at the SigEp chapter house. Despite the competitive nature of the fraternity community at OU, our active chapter continues to thrive. They are the largest chapter within the OU community and SigEp nationally. Our brothers earned OU's highest honor given in the Greek community, the President's Trophy. These men have already stepped forward and committed to the Red Door Renaissance Campaign, making what is likely the largest undergraduate contribution in history. With an active membership so clearly dedicated to success, we have a responsibility to provide them with a chapter house indicative of the excellence our brotherhood has attained. Through a careful evaluation of the needs of the undergraduate chapter and the capability of our alumni, we have set a goal of raising $2.5 million to renovate the chapter house to provide a facility that will preserve SigEp's legacy of success at OU. To date, early commitments from dedicated SigEp alumni, friends, and the undergraduates total $1,254,225. We now seek additional support from our loyal alumni base to complete this renovation project. We must challenge each other to support this campaign, reconnect to our fraternity and alma mater, and secure the investment alumni made decades ago. Every contribution counts and every gift will benefit generations of men to come. Please contact any committee or AVC member if you have questions about the campaign or want to know how to get involved. Alumni who came before us provided the opportunity to join SigEp, to live together in a chapter house, and to develop the enduring friendships we cherish. Now is the time to join your brothers who have already made generous donations and ensure that the same level of excellence continues for Oklahoma Beta into the future.
