International Sweetheart of Sigma Chi

The International Sweetheart of Sigma Chi is a woman who serves as a role model for all of our brothers, and is our Fraternity's liaison to non-members throughout the world. She must possess an understanding of the values and ideals for which the White Cross stands, and exemplify these values and ideals in her daily life.

Honor your chapter sweetheart at Grand Chapter this year! This is a reminder for undergraduate chapters to nominate their chapter sweetheart for International Sweetheart. The appreciation, pride and care chapters exhibit in the application they create for their sweethearts will be something she will cherish for a lifetime.

Applications for International Sweetheart are available now by clicking here. Submit the completed application by email to sweetheart@sigmachi.org by March 1, 2015.

Here are some tips from 33rd International Sweetheart Mary Sugden on choosing a chapter sweetheart:

  • Choose a brother in the chapter with the enthusiasm for this fun project to be the sweetheart chairman — maybe a new initiate or a fifth-year senior who’s looking to extend his undergraduate experience;

  • Have the sweetheart chairman interview the chapter sweetheart to learn about her background and experiences;

  • Work with the chapter sweetheart to create an application that reflects her unique qualities and those of your chapter — it could be fun or serious, sentimental or silly, or a little bit of everything; and

  • Remember that the nomination itself is an honor for your chapter’s sweetheart.
