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 is rocking and rolling with continued success this past academic year! We yet again topped the campus average GPA with a 3.40 for Fall 2015. This accomplishment was in no small way helped by the incredible 23 new members to join the Fraternity.
Prior to the fall semester, August saw our President and a few other representatives attend the Grand Chapter Conclave in Nashville, Tennessee. There, we were honored to receive the most prestigious award that a SigEp chapter can receive: The Buchanan Cup. This award goes to the best of SigEp's 257 chapters. Though, probably more exciting was the decision by the Undergraduate Conclave to change our Grand Chapter Bylaws to make the Balanced Man Program the one and only membership program of SigEp; completely removing the Pledge model program from all of SigEp's undergraduate chapters.
Our spring semester has already started off well for us too. It began with yet another successful BLS where the chapter awarded $2000 to Freshman and Sophomores at MSU who exemplify the ideal of living a balanced life. At the end of January, our chapter’s executive committee headed to Irvine, California, for the Carlson Leadership Academy whereat they were given intensive, position-specific training that they can bring back to the chapter and apply through the duration of their terms. We also received some prestigious awards there: Alumni Volunteer Corporation (AVC) Operational Excellence Award, and the Chapter Home of the Year Award.
This semester, we are also looking forward to some fun events such as snowshoeing, chapter retreat, working with Big Brothers/Big Sisters and Habitat for Humanity, and implementing service learning into our membership development program.
