Fifty Tragos Quest to Greece scholars and mentors gathered at the 57th Grand Chapter Conclave to celebrate their shared experience — and the 20th anniversary of the Quest. Reuniting with brothers from their Quest year and building connections with brothers across the Quest alumni family, the stories shared were a reminder of the power of the Quest and its formative effect on so many lives.
Through scrapbooks and photos of the past 20 years of Quest, the Tragos luncheon marked this important milestone and sparked memories of its life-changing impact. The Tragos Quest to Greece changes the way brothers view the world, their Fraternity and themselves. Guided by alumni mentors and university faculty, Tragos Quest to Greece Scholars study the influence that Greek philosophy, governance and the arts has and continues to have in everyday life. Brothers explore Greek culture and contemplate the origins of SigEp’s values and the Balanced Man ideal.
“It was incredible to catch up with my Tragos brothers, and to also meet so many other Tragos scholars,” 2019 Quest scholar Clark Williams, Tennessee ’ 20, said. “It was wonderful to meet those alumni brothers that have dedicated so much time and resources to ensure that undergraduates are able to embark on the quest. Tragos has helped so many brothers discover their true selves in order to live more authentic lives and help improve their home chapters and SigEp as a whole.”
Funded through a landmark gift from Past Grand President Bill Tragos, Washington-St. Louis ’56 and his wife, Lilli, over the past 20 years, 385 brothers and mentors have attended Quest through the generosity of donors to the SigEp Annual Fund.
