President's Message    
“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Dear parents, students, brothers, sisters, and the surrounding community,

My name is Ivan Garcia and I am proud to be the President for the “Insane” Eta Chapter here at Northern Illinois University. Throughout the years of our existence, we have strived to provide NIU with outstanding members of society. We strive to leave an impact here on campus and we focus on representing ourselves as men of excellence, leaders, supporters, and most importantly as brothers.

Since its inception in 1989, the “Insane” Eta Chapter has been recognized as a premier chapter here at NIU. In addition to our success as an entity, our chapter has been celebrated in its ability to create some of the best and brightest student leaders on our campus. This upcoming school year we will have brothers representing Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity Inc. in various sectors of the University. Some of which include: Student Association Treasurer, Director of Cultural Affairs, President of the United Greek Council, Treasurer of the United Greek Council, Treasurer of Supporting Opportunities for Latinos and various Honors Societies here on campus.

Our involvement on campus has driven each and every one of our brothers to strive for greater things on their path to their own success and has been vital in ensuring that we continually understand what our letters truly stand for. As our chapter continues to grow, we continually seek ways in which we may provide a beneficial impact to our community. We remain loyal to our four pillars: Brotherhood, Community Service, Cultural Awareness and Scholarship. With an upcoming school year full of events and programs, we encourage everyone to come out and get a feel for who we are and what we offer to NIU.

In closing, as I embark on my senior year here at this phenomenal university, I can honestly say that becoming a brother of this fraternity was on e of the best decisions I have made. I have grown substantially as a person and created lifelong friendships. I would like to thank all brothers, family, friends, fellow Greeks, and of course NIU for your continuous support and helping us make a difference on this great campus for over twenty years. Thank you again for visiting our website, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all.

In Brotherhood,
Ivan “Filo” Garcia
2013-2014 Chapter President
