Tragic Dailey House Fire Update

Attention all Brothers,

On November 21st 2017, the historic Dailey house and home of Sigma Nu Eta Mu experienced an extensive structural fire. Thankfully, all of the people in the house were able to evacuate to safety without injuries but the flames still ravaged several floors of the house. The original structure was severely damaged despite the extraordinary efforts of the five Genessee County Fire Departments dispatched to quench the flames.

Since our founding as local fraternity Delta Chi Rho in 1955, generations of Brothers have come to call the house on the corner of Flushing and Elms their home. We take pride in our long history of serving the Genessee County community, while developing academic excellence and leadership. We are honored to have donated thousands of hours of community service to such charities as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Relay for Life, and St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, and volunteered at the Crim Races, the Flint Institute of Arts, Genessee County Humane Society, and countless others throughout the years. While many physical reminders of our history have been destroyed by the flames several of our significant historical artifacts have been recovered.

In this time of grieving, we would like to ask you to help us remember the place we all called home. If you have any memories, anecdotes, photos, or other remembrances of the house or your time in it, please send it to us via our Facebook page (, email Shanti Witt (, or snail mail at the address below. Hopefully we can come together and help pave the way for another 60 years of brotherhood in Flushing.
