POTSDAM -- More than 170 Clarkson alumni, staff members and friends attended the dedication of the new Sigma Chi Fraternity house on the university's hill campus.

The dedication coincided with Sigma Chi’s 25th anniversary as a recognized fraternity at Clarkson.

The Iota Zeta Chapter of the Sigma Chi Fraternity at Clarkson University recently dedicated its new house on the University's hill campus.

More than 170 student and alumni brothers of the Iota Zeta Chapter, as well as faculty, staff, parents and friends. The dedication coincided with Sigma Chi’s 25th anniversary as a recognized fraternity at Clarkson.

Clarkson's master plan maximizes its scenic river- and forest-side location. One of its most exciting aspects for students is the creation of new houses to serve Greek organizations and other shared-interest groups.

These new theme houses will offer living and gathering space for 20-22 individuals with shared interests.

Working with students and alumni representing fraternities, sororities and special interest groups, Clarkson developed site plans and is building new University-owned housing to accommodate members of designated organizations.

Construction is taking place just west of the Center for Advanced Materials Processing building with the first two of the houses scheduled to open in the fall. Sigma Chi and Sigma Delta fraternities will be the first two groups to move onto campus in the theme housing.
