What is Sweetheart Ball?

What A SIGMA CHI Sweetheart?


Our fraternity’s sweetheart is a member of a sorority on campus who represents our chapter, connects with the brothers and serves as a liaison between Sigma Chi and other sororities. She becomes a part of our chapter, gets to wear our letters and our badge. She is a woman who shares the values of our fraternity and is committed to self-improvement and making the world a better place. A Sigma Chi Sweetheart is pictured on our composite, and she is recognized at all Sigma Chi Chapters across the nation.

Sweethearts are chosen during a week-long interview process where a woman who is nominated by her sorority comes to Sigma Chi to get to know the brothers. At the end of the week, the brothers vote on which woman they believe best represents our chapter. The winner is announced at our annual Sweetheart Ball, which is the capstone to the Sweetheart Week.

The Sweetheart Ball is an annual dance that happens in a location off campus usually during winter term. It is a prestigious and formal event, where brothers bring dates and stay in a hotel. In past years it has been held at hotels in Portland, Newport, and Waldport Beach.

When the world goes wrong, as it's bound to do
And you've broken Dan Cupid's bow
And you long for the girl you used to love
the maid of the long ago

Why light your pipe, bid sorrow avaunt,
Blow the smoke from your alter of dreams
And wreathe the face of your dream-girl there
The love that is just what it seems.

The girl of my dreams is the sweetest girl
Of all the girls I know
Each sweet co-ed, like a rainbow trail
Fades in the after glow

The blue of her eyes and the gold of her hair
Are a blend of the western sky

And the moonlight beams
On the girl of my dreams
She's the Sweetheart of Sigma Chi.
