For the 3rd consecutive year, Epsilon-Iota has had two men selected to Delta Sigma Phi's flagship leadership program, the Leadership Institute. Garrett Paulson and Austin Kilburg were selected to become part of the Psi class of the program. Their hard work and dedication to the Fraternity has been a shining light on our mission at Delta Sigma Phi and we can't wait to see how they can keep the tradition alive for our chapter. Additionally, one of our alumni, Ken Riley, was a facilitator for the program. Epsilon Iota had great representation. Congratulations everyone.

Epsilon Iota hosted their first annual Delta Sig Dog Day philanthropy event. The event consisted of yard games, raffle prizes, hot dog and corn dog sales, and a chance for patrons to enter the "Dog Zone." The "Dog Zone" was a place for people to pet and play with dogs. The proceeds were split between the American Red Cross and Capable Canines of Wisconsin, which had supplied the dogs. The event raised over $800 in total and brought many people out to support the causes and learn more about Delta Sig. Big thanks to the philanthropy committee for the planning.
The Epsilon Iota Chapter is happy to announce there have been 8 new men initiated into Delta Sigma Phi. 7 are new undergraduate members and the last is our new Faculty Advisor, Jay Lokken. Jay is replacing Don Sloan who has given a lot back to the chapter over his years and we thank him for it.

Another example of Leadership, brothers Alex Riley and Talon Dumke were accepted into the 2014 Leadership Institute where both men returned to La Crosse richer for the experience. This is the second year in a row that the Epsilon Iota chapter has not only had its leaders accepted into the program, but two leaders were accepted in both years (At the 2013 Leadership Institute, brothers Beau Rath and Cameron Carey attended)!
