Sigma Phi Epsilon
Sigma Phi Epsilon was founded at Richmond College, now the University of Richmond, on November 1, 1901, on the Cardinal Principles: Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love. Today, the Fraternity has grown to more than 262,000 lifetime members, including 13,500 undergraduates on 260 campuses in the United States. SigEp is the currently the largest fraternity in terms of undergraduate enrollment.
SigEp just came off of a monumental year! We took home multiple awards from both the local and regional level. These awards included The Fraternity Community Service Award, Chapter House of the Year, Alumni Excellence Award, and Fraternity of the Year. Lastly, we attained the Scholarship Excellence Award and posted a cumulative 3.42 Chapter GPA for the Spring 2014 term.
The fraternity is continually pushing forward and reaching higher than ever before. Our Balanced Leader Scholarship had record participation with over 200 applicants and 130 interviews conducted; we awarded five scholarships totaling $2000. Apart from the Balanced Leader Scholarship, we are continuing with our annual SigEp Rose Bowl. SigEp Rose is a sorority powder-puff game that is held in Bobcat stadium where ticket sales are donated to our national philanthropy, Big Brother Big Sisters.
Along with the events on campus, SigEp continues to host our SigEp lecture series, with lectures in the past spanning from how music affects the mind to civic engagement and voting. SigEp will also be pushing hard to receive the Buchanan Outstanding Chapter Award (Buch Cup) from the National SigEp Organization. The Buch Cup is given out every two years at Conclave, which will be held this summer in Nashville, Tennessee. To be eligible for the award, chapters must compile information from over the past two years to show high performance in academics, man power, and involvement, as well as continued growth in each one of these areas.
Overall, the future of SigEp is looking great and we can't wait for the rest of the academic year!
