Sigma Phi Epsilon prides itself on being different, and that difference has helped us lead the fraternity world. SigEps refuse to be stereotyped as "frat boys," nor its chapters as "animal houses." Sigma Phi Epsilon is dedicated to the idea that a fraternity is much more than a social organization -- it is an institution of higher learning; one that centers around the ideals of allowing one to live his best life.
Sigma Phi Epsilon is not a pledging chapter. We have implemented the Balanced Man program where, upon admittance, a new member has the same responsibilities as a full brother. Therefore, a new member has full voting rights and is eligible, and encouraged, to run for leadership positions within the fraternity. New members can run for the positions of VP Finance, VP Recruitment, and VP Communications or hold one of the numerous chair positions each executive board member has. This differentiates us from many of the fraternities on campus. This opportunity helps cultivate the leadership potential of our new members from the start.
Sigma Phi Epsilon empowers each member to take control of their lives in order to become a Blanced Man. To assist in this SigEp is the only fraternity on campus with a 24 hour study room in the house. The RLC (Residential Learning Community) provides a quiet, comfortable, and convenient area for brothers to study and do homework. Our academic chairman also reserved classrooms for weekly "SigEp Study Halls".
Our Sound Body chairman develops weekly fitness incentives to motivate members to eat well, excercise regularly, and develop good health habits. With programs such as "Sound Body Runs" and "Blacktop Friday", our members stay in shape and have fun doing it!
