The Octagon will provide topics or areas of the Fraternity that need to be reformed, revised, or revamped. These topics or areas will be centered around Sigma Alpha Mu’s approach to tackling global fraternity issues. DLI will decide on two of those proposed topics and will work during the program to complete the objectives, with a final virtual presentation to the Octagon. The Octagon is looking forward to having undergraduate input and direction on these important areas of the Fraternity.
Deadline: November 15, 2021 12:00 PM EST
