House Description

Construction design is under way for 3 floors plus basement to be ready for occupancy for Fall

term 2014. It will be state of the art; located in the center of the 7 theme house plots, on the back

entry road leading into the campus off the Canton Road (Route 11) and next door to Sigma Delta.

The design forwarded to Clarkson Facilities Engineering is equivalent in size to the Sigma Chi

house approximately (9,600 sq. ft.) and will have 2 Turret sections. The larger front turret will

house the “Legacy Room” on the 1st floor, a large study/meeting room on both the 2nd and 3rd

floors and the space for a separate laundry room & workshop area in the basement.

The smaller turret on the backside of the house for the 2nd and 3rd floors will be part of the

Presidents and Sr. VP rooms providing conference space for staff meetings. Two covered

porches are located on either side of the house. One off the living room for entertainment will be directly

accessible from either the living room, the grounds or a side entry. A second porch off the back of

the dinning room is perfect for informal barbecuing and outdoor eating. A great place for hanging

out with friends.

An entry with a double set of doors and inlaid “DU Crest” on the first floor leads to a central

hallway to access the living room, Legacy room and kitchen/dinning rooms. In addition a guest or

handicap accessible bedroom is located on the 1st floor with nearby bathroom and elevator

(future) to basement. The dining room doors open wide to either extend the living room for

special events or permit an overflow from the dining room. for larger dinners. A large closet is

there for storing extra tables and chairs. A gas fired sandstone fireplace at the end of the living

room will have an inscribed the “Lambda Iota Crest” porting the fraternity’s 1919 origin and legacy.

Each of two upper floors will have eleven single bedrooms. Since each fraternity house is

required to pay the university for only 19 bedrooms under the MOU, the additional BRs income

can be offered as a room scholarship to a qualified brother(s). Each upper floor has its own

common bath room, each can accommodate up to 9 comfortably at one time. As afore mentioned

a large group study room is located on each floor for group projects. Separate stairwells are

located at either end of the building for both safety and convenience.

The basement will house the recreation center; an entertainment area with a serving bar,

refrigerator, dual sinks , pool table, ping pong, a music center, men’s room and ladies powder

room as well as a future elevator to the first floor. There are too many other items to list such as

TV, WiFi, bike rack storage, flag poles, garbage holding room, storage, etc. All in all, it is a

definite big step up from a conventional dormitory which should make the new Lambda DU house

a preferred destination. And best of all it is in the center of the campus within short walking

distance to the student center, classes, sporting fields/arena, etc yet with the privacy afforded by

the natural wooded setting.

This is a great time to be a DU on the Clarkson Campus.
