President's Message

Matt
Vani

Email

Like many people in Greek life, I initially had no intentions of joining a fraternity. I ended up deciding to give it a shot and after meeting some of the guys at rush events I immediately knew that these were the men I wanted to call my brothers. Joining Alpha Sigma Phi has provided me the endless social experiences of college as well as the tools to grow and improve as an individual. Whether it’s holding events at our chapter house or catching the big game in the lounge, there’s never a dull moment when I’m with my brothers. Besides allowing me to live in the Rockledge Manor, a mansion, with my best friends, the fraternity has helped me develop as a student and a leader while giving me varied experiences and alumni connections that will excel me forward throughout my career. I couldn’t imagine my time at Cornell without Alpha Sig.

Recruitment Chair's Message

As a brother of Alpha Sigma Phi and a member of the Greek Community at large, I have developed a passion for Greek Life and all it represents. During my several years at Rockledge, I have been privileged to be part of an expansive network of brotherhood and support that has made my college experience incredible. I can’t imagine my life without my fraternity. As Rush Chair, my goal is not only to welcome new members into our doors here at Rockledge, but to assist in guiding young men into the fraternity community as a whole. Here at Cornell, we have more than 35 chapters that each offer their own unique experience, and the diversity of our community is what really lets our motto ring true: “Fraternity for Everyone.” If you have any questions about life at Rockledge or about fraternity life in general, you can always reach out to me on Facebook or at rush.chairman@alphasigcornell.org. Hope to see you in January!

Philanthropy

Rockledge organizes multiple philanthropic events each semester to benefit any of our five national charities, representing our five core values: Silence, Charity, Purity, Honor, and Patriotism. Last year, we raised several thousand dollars through our "Dunking for Dollars" event co-sponsored with Kappa Delta Sorority, and our annual Movember coffee and jazz night.

Academic

Rockledge is committed to seeing its members succeed both academically and professionally. Available to brothers are a number of academic resources, such as a house library and academic scholarships through the Rockledge Foundation. Brothers of Rockledge are also connected to Alpha Sigma Phi’s nationwide alumni network, a valuable tool for professional networking.

Social

Whether it is a sorority mixer, formal, or party, Rockledge has three social chairs dedicated to planning and executing an event for each weekend. We hold events with multiple groups and sororities on campus and encourage our brothers to network and meet others within the Greek community and beyond. Some major events include our 3 annual formals, Rocktoberfest, Rave under the Waves, Shamrockledge, and annual wine tour. There is something to do every week.
