Pat Fitzgerald

Pat Fitzgerald

Attorney | Meyer Capel of Champaign | Class of 1989

If it happened to Pat Fitzgerald at Illinois, odds are it involved Sigma Chi, his Greek home away from home.

“From my initial weekend on campus when our house hosted a 25-keg ‘New Student Week’ party — paid for by the Re-elect Governor Thompson campaign; imagine the headlines that would generate today — to the lifelong friendships I made, the Sigma Chi house and its brothers are a fond memory,” says the Urbana native turned Champaign attorney (BA '86/economics, JD '89/law).

“I remain in close contact with a number of my fellow Sigs and we often reminisce about our days playing IM sports, cramming for exams and going to Kam's to chase cute coeds — one of which I was lucky enough to convince to marry me, Susan Jorgensen Fitzgerald.”
