This past Tuesday, SigEp Penn Delta was enthusiastic to begin its second year of Alumni Speakers with Brother Tony Mishik (’79).  The Alumni Speaker Series is a relatively newfound tradition at the house, in which various alum are invited back to the house to discuss their time at SigEp Penn Delta, their memories of Penn back in the day, and the different career paths they’ve taken later in life. It’s a good time for everyone involved—current brothers get to learn a little more about SigEp from the past and what has or hasn’t changed while the alums that come by get to relive some great memories and pass on some wisdom to the younger guys.

Tony was a fantastic speaker—he was able to not only share his wealth of knowledge about the medical field to the various premed brothers in the house but also to tell us all some stories that we hadn’t heard before. It was astounding to hear about the sit in of 1978, and how SigEp brothers actually had a hand in such a monumental event in Penn’s history. It was also interesting to learn more about the West Philadelphia area in general and about how all of the brothers back then made it their home. Hearing about how everyone had to be relocated repeatedly during our current house’s reconstruction during that time surprised a lot of the newer brother’s in the house, who didn’t know its history as well.

If you’re interested in participating this program at sometime in the future or are just interested in passing on a story to the house, reach out to Edward Zilberbrand, VP of Communications, at This email address is being protected from spambots.
