Enter the castle doors of Ye Olde Phye Sigge, and be transported back to a truer, more glorious day of yore. Around the dining table, Phi Sig feasts like the Lords of Valhalla on succulent repasts prepared for us by the noble chef and transported by our loyal hashers, from our vassals in the neighboring region of Grove Mayfield.
When night falls, Phi Sig fills goblets and tankards with the finest ales and spirits, in order to make merry and dance on the tables built by our forefathers. Once per moon cycle, we hold a great feast at the benevolence of our ruler, the High Duchess Social Manager.
All tithes are collected and managed by the honorable Chancellor of the Exchequer FM. When grain storage reaches dangerously low levels and the peasants cry out for more porridge and Clif bars, her highness Queen Kitchen Manager sends an emissary to the land of eternal plenty, Costco.
Disputes between serfs are settled with a fair mind and iron fist by His Majesty, Emperor of All Phi Sig, RA, first born son of Hammurabi. Breaches in the defense of the Great Phi Sig, or warrior invasions by the peons of Grove are crushed with a call to arms by Ruthless Warlord HM.
The RCC is responsible for the upkeep and management of our computer cluster, which features two state of the art Macintosh computer systems, capable of dual booting in both Windows XP and Mac OSX.
Every man, woman and sophomore must take up sword and goblet (eanabs will be provided) to protect her honor: All hail the mighty Phi Sig!
Information regarding mail and package delivery
Students living in Row Houses (Upper Row, Lower Row, Clusters 1, 2, or 3/Cowell) are strongly encouraged to follow the directions for the mail and package process provided on the Mail Delivery and Shipping page, as the PO Box address is each student’s official Stanford address and should be maintained during their entire undergraduate career. However, Row residents are also able to have mail packages delivered directly to their Row house by addressing mail and packages to the house's street address. Please be reminded that Student Housing/the University accepts no responsibility for packages sent to/delivered at individual residences.
Additional Community Information
What is the coolest thing about your house & community?
We provide a space where people from diverse backgrounds can be welcomed. As the smallest house on campus, there is no room from cliques to form, and instead everyone knows each other and a strong community is able to develop. This year, all of our staff members, as well as our residents are involved in a wide array of activities and communities. However, it is amazing to see everyone comfortable with bringing those communities into Phi Sig and sharing their talents with the other house members. By pushing our dinning tables together into one big table we are able to make our meals feel like home
What makes a successful Phi Sig staff member?
We like to support all the amazing activities our residents do. As cheesy as it sounds, we really strive to create a place where everyone feels welcome, no matter your background. It is really important to be laid back as well as ready to have a lot of fun. The best memories are created when an impromptu party happens within the house and all of your friends together unexpectedly.
Our house is meaningful to the Stanford community because….
If this isn’t reason enough, we have the best music on campus. After struggling to find good music in the desert of obscure hipster beats, and shrill electronic overtones, you have found an oasis in Phi Sig. We provide the best music that allows you to drop it low, and bring it up slow, all while in the comfort of great friends! We look forward to seeing you soon at one of our many parties such as bar night :)
