SAEs Volunteer at Color Run

On Friday, members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Indiana Gamma spent the morning volunteering at the Jill Behrman Color the Campus 5k.  The brothers worked from 9 AM until the race’s conclusion at noon, primarily at the water stations and as guides for the course.  The experience was rewarding for most, as they got to enjoy nice fall weather helping out their local community.  However, one brother was injured during the race as he was stung by a bee while volunteering.  While the bee’s intent is unknown, the brother’s spirits were not wavered, and he continued to hand out water despite this aggravating and terribly timed injury.

The race is done in memory of IU student Jill Behrman, who was killed during a bike ride.  The JB5k is in it’s 14th year and continues to be a big event at IU in the fall.

Brother Spotlight: Cameron Shine

Cameron Shine is sophomore member of SAE, from Kappa class.

Why did you initially join SAE?

I joined SAE to experience a brotherhood similar to that of sports teams that I played on in the past.  Also, I wanted to establish immediate connections with other IU students that share similar interests as myself.

Are you involved in any organizations outside the chapter?

I am involved with Club Soccer and am involved with Indiana University Dance Marathon.

What are the commitments for Club Soccer like?

We practice Monday through Thursday and have about 12 games scattered across multiple weekends across other universities in the Midwest.

It’s been noted you’re the “face” of the Fry scholars. How did you earn that distinction?

They offered me to be profiled in their brochure because I had an interesting background and chose Kelley over multiple division 1 soccer scholarships.  They thought that would make a good story for other potential Fry Scholars to hear.

You’re the junior recruitment chair.  How do you feel this new style of fall recruitment went?

It went very well. Despite changes to how the recruitment process works at IU, our committee acclimated well. We recruited a solid group new members (Mu Class) that I can see doing big things. Overall, it was an awesome experience.

Extra Questions:

Favorite Dessert?

Apple Cobbler

Favorite Professional Soccer Team?

Chelsea FC (Of the English Premier League)

Backstreet Boys or N’SYNC?

N’SYNC. I can’t go against Justin Timberlake.

Best part about IU?

The Greek Life and the bonds that come with it.

 

 

 

Dad’s Weekend at SAE

The weekend of October 3rd and 4th marks SAE’s Dad’s Weekend.  Numerous activities have been planned for the dads and brothers, primarily the IU Football game and Casino night.

IU Football

IU (2-2) squares off against North Texas (2-2) of Conference USA.  A lot of brothers and fathers will be attending the game and subsequent tailgate.  This non-conference battle will be IU’s last non-conference game of the year, and should be considered a must-win for the team.  This event will provide some great entertainment for brothers and their families.

Casino Night Philanthropy

The brothers in SAE will be hosting a casino night for their dads, but with a twist. 10% of the pot will be donated to the Children’s Miracle Network, SAE’s primary charity.  This allows for brothers and their dads to help raise money for charity while having some fun.

Most importantly, Dad’s weekend is a time for brothers to be reunited with their family, so we expect some good times to be had!  We’re always glad to see a house full of proud fathers and even some alumni. A great weekend to look forward to.  We’ll have recap of the events and any earnings from the casino night by next week.
