Nov 15, 2014 – Sigma Omega Chapter was installed at Northeastern University in Boston on November 15, 2014.

Sigma Omega Chapter #285 was installed at Northeastern University in Boston on November 15, 2014 with 38 collegians and one faculty initiate. Northeastern PVP Tricia Smith was the installing officer with collegiate participants from throughout the New England region. Installation of the chapter occurred during an evening banquet at The Inn at Longwood in Boston.

Additional national representatives on hand for the event included New England RVP Dan Collins, District Directors Nick Steinkrauss and Gary Perez, Colony Pledge Educator Caroline Sullivan, Leadership Foundation Trustee Tom Skinner, National Professional Development Chair Paul Carpinella, Golden Council member Patrick Johnson, and Director of Information and Operational Services Jeremy Levine.

The Nu Sigma Psi Colony officially began October 29, 2013 with alumni referrals. Delta Sigma Pi quickly achieved support from the School of Business and though an arduous process, gained final approval from Student Affairs. The colony’s professional program included a variety of topics and presentations, including real estate, sales and marketing speakers, a workshop from a staffing agency, and a simulation of the television show “Shark Tank”.

Stair climbing for heart disease with Brigham and Women's Hospital was the first service project pursued by the colony closely following with projects benefiting many charities including Ronald McDonald House Charities, Perkins School for the Blind, American Cancer Society, Alzheimer’s Association, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, and a walk to cure arthritis. Their final service events were a series of recycling efforts at Fenway Park.

The new chapter has interacted with many area events hosted by the Boston Alumni Chapter, a regional event hosted at Bryant University, and attended the Woodbridge (NJ) LEAD School. They supported their programs through fundraisers with several food vendors including Panera Bread, UNO Pizzeria, California Pizza Kitchen, and Five Guys.

Northeastern University is a private institution founded in 1898 as The Evening Institute for Younger Men at the local YMCA, later changing its name to Northeastern College. By 1980, enrollment had grown to nearly 60,000 commuter and part-time students. However, in 1990, enrollment was reduced to focus on improving the quality of the university and residence halls were built. Northeastern achieved university status in 1992. Today, enrollment is about 13,000 undergraduates who enjoy over 300 clubs and organizations.

The D’Amore-McKim School of Business was created in 1922. Today, most students complete two co-op programs with one of more than 60 corporate partners.  Business enrollment is 3,500 undergraduates who choose concentrations in accounting, entrepreneurship and innovation, finance, management, marketing, management information systems, supply chain management, business administration, and international business. MBA programs are offered in Boston, Charlotte, Seattle, and online.
