SC Gamma 06-07 Wofford Awards
The 2006-2007 year can be considered a landmark year in the storied history of SC Gamma. The Greek Awards were handed out and Sigma Alpha Epsilon's name was called for nearly every applicable award. The chapter collected Wofford Chapter of the Year Honors and Highest Chapter GPA, 2 major chapter-wide awards handed out annually. In addition, Josh Thompson '07 was awarded with Greek Male of the Year. Those involved with SC Gamma over the 4 years he has been a brother surely cannot be surprised, as he has influenced nearly every facet of fraternity life as well as accumulating an impressive resume filled with positions on IFC and various other leadership roles in campus organizations. He is also a recent member of Phi Beta Kappa. The other individual award was presented to Matt Abee '10 for IFC New member of the year. Matt was a member of the pledge class of 2006 and was proudly initiated in February 2007. He serves the fraternity as Parliamentarian and was elected by the campus to serve on the cabinet for Campus Union in the position of Secretary.
SC Gamma Achieves Academic Excellence
The Chapter is proud to announce that the spring 2006 semester Grade Report for Wofford Greek Life has been released and we are on top again! SC Gamma not only achieved the highest semester average GPA and the highest new member class GPA, but the all Greek average has surpassed the all Wofford average for the first time since Greek GPA data tracking began at the the College in 1999! SC Gamma's GPA was a 3.29 with the next closest competitor being PKA with a 3.11. SC Gamma's 2005 Pledge Class recorded a 1st year GPA of a 3.14 with the next closest competitor once again being PKA with a 2.91 GPA. The all Greek average for the semester 3.17, edging out the all Wofford average of a 3.15 GPA. This is surely a giant step in putting to death the allegations that Greek Life participation is adverse to academic success at Wofford. Congratulations Brothers and all Wofford Greeks for your academic devotion and excellence this past semester!
