Fraternities - Sigma Rho

Buildings, Clubhouses, Education, Transportation, Automotive The Sigma Rho boys are again in their own establishment after a period of prolonged stay in the edifice of the former Congregational Church in Chassell. The Sigs are greatly enjoying their new Fraternity House and they are entitled to happiness in that theirs has been a life of shifting about due to, first, the fire which destoyed their first Chassell House, the former Worchester home, and then the blaze which consumed their unfinished house just as it was about ready to permit the entrance of the Tech students who are members of the frat. Fourteen young men now live at the house on the Chassell Lakeshore. Come fall and the number will be up to its regular 24. Dave Crockett, one of the social officers of the Sigs, says that the first house burned in 1974 and the second, the very next year. During one time in the fraternity's history its house was in Houghton. It occupied a position on a hill exactly where East Wadsworth Hall is currently. The newest building has 12 bedrooms and a fireplace along with eight other rooms. [Exterior view of the house.]
