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.
Montana Beta has concluded the ’16-’17 academic year at an exciting time for our chapter. SigEp at MSU exemplifies the value of a substance-free fraternity, and the success of our chapter is not lost on our national organization. This year, our chapter was recognized for our efforts to provide an exceptional member development experience. The national fraternity awarded our chapter with regional Chapter Home of the Year and Donald C. McCleary Excellence in Member Development awards. Recent alumnus Riley Shearer and alumni volunteer member Brad Brown were also recognized for their contributions to the chapter with the J. Edward Zollinger Outstanding Senior and Volunteer of the Year awards respectively. Closer to home, our chapter was recognized by Montana State University Fraternity & Sorority Life in the form of the Chapter and New Member Academic Excellence awards, and the Campus Involvement Award. Todd Lackman took home a New Member of the Year award, while both Brad Brown and Steve Liebmann were recognized with Alumni Excellence Awards. Clearly, we have much to be proud of in our chapter, our brothers, and our volunteers.
Leading up to the end of the semester, our chapter stepped up our engagement with our campus and community: Our chapter was the top Greek contributor to the Polar Plunge philanthropy for Special Olympics of Montana with a donation of $1,265. Brothers stepped up to serve Habitat for Humanity at their ReStore facility, and Big Brothers Big Sisters during their Big for a Day events. The RLC delivered another exceptional Lecture Series featuring Dr. Jovanka Voyich to discuss antimicrobial resistance and human health. At our end of the semester banquet, 150 undergraduates, volunteers, friends, alumni, and SigEp CEO Brian Warren and Grand Chapter President Rick Bennet gathered celebrate the contributions of Steve Liebmann with the SigEp National Exemplary Service Award. We are excited to head into another successful year for our chapter following this summer as many of our chapter leaders head off to the Grand Chapter Conclave in Orlando and the Ruck Leadership Institute in Richmond, Virginia.
