 Q: Why did you join Sigma Chi?

Sapoch: “While my initial introduction to Sigma Chi was through my brother(who is also a Sig, one year older than myself);  It was the closeness, and yet individuality of the brothers that made me want to be a Sigma Chi.”

Q: What is your favorite memory from Sigma Chi as an Undergrad? 

Sapoch: “My initiation ceremony, of which I can remember almost every detail- five years later, along with Spring Break in Fort Lauderdale—details of which I couldn’t remember the day after”

Q: How Do you benefit from Fraternity Life as an Alum? 

Sapoch: “There is an old saying about being a Sigma Chi…The more your give to The Fraternity-The more you get back. Having served as Grand Praetor for the Central Pennsylvania Province for over 25yrs now…What the list of how I have benefited from Sigma Chi is too long to list.”

Q: What is your advice for the active Brothers today? 

Sapoch:  “I would say enjoy, and appreciate your undergrad years; and make the most of them. Don’t shy away from getting involved with every leadership or education opportunity Sigma Chi may afford you…As you will better appreciate the lessons and skills learned as you move forward in your life…If in business, family or daily life…Your Sigma Chi experience can help make you a better and more successful  person.”

Q: Why is it important for Alumni to give back to their fraternity? 

Sapoch: “I think all alums have something to offer to undergrads…No matter what their profession, or vocation-Alums’ life-experiences can help our undergrads better prepare for their life after college. Whether a financial commitment, or a commitment of time…Undergrads benefit from Alums’ support. “ 

Q: What are the top three things you gained from your fraternity?  

Sapoch:”A reaffirmation of my belief that giving back or giving to other is one of the most satisfying things in life you can do. In addition, living the validation of The Spirit of Sigma Chi friendship among members, sharing a common belief in an ideal, and possessing different temperaments, talents, and convictions is superior to friendship among members having the same temperaments, talents, and convictions. Genuine friendship can be maintained without surrendering the principle of individuality or sacrificing one’s personal judgment.”
