Pallardy, who is president of the MSU chapter of SigEp, participated in the Tragos Quest to Greece this summer. He was selected from a pool of more than 15,000 SigEps.
The Tragos Quest to Greece focuses on the ideals of sound mind and sound body, two of SigEp's core practices. Organizers say the trip epitomizes SigEp's commitment to breaking stereotypes about Greek-letter organizations and carrying out its mission of building balanced men.
"Nothing compares to reading about Socrates only to look up and see the Parthenon dominating
the sky line," Pallardy said. "It was like getting transported to another time and place, getting fully immersed in what ancient Greece would have been."
The trip is funded by a grant from the SigEp Educational Foundation, which raises money for SigEp's
various local and national leadership programs.
