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 3.39 for Fall 2014. This accomplishment was in no small way helped by the incredible 19 new brothers that we were able to recruit last fall.
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: The Excelsior Cup for Recruitment, The Scholarship Award, Alumni Volunteer Corporation (AVC) Operational Excellence Award, Distinguished Alumni Award for AVC President Bill Schell, and a Tragos Trip to Greece Scholar in Chapter President Riley Shearer.
As this semester progresses, we will be focusing on our National Conclave in August. It will take place in Nashville, Tennessee, and we will apply for the most prominent awards within Sigma Phi Epsilon: the coveted Buchanan Cup. This semester we are also looking forward to some fun events such as snowshoeing, chapter retreat, working with habitat for humanity, and implementing service learning into our membership development program.
