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 off to a great start... Coming off of winning Fraternity of the Year for the second year in a row; we posted a record cumulative 3.54 GPA.
The fraternity is ready and excited to push forward to even bigger and better things. Apart from continuing our Balanced Leader Scholarship, we will be bringing a couple big events to campus. The first is the SigEp Rose competition. Last year SigEp hosted its first sorority competition with a powder puff football game. This year, the game (officially dubbed the SigEp Rose Bowl) was hosted in Bobcat Stadium on September 29th. Also, for the first time this year, SigEp will be hosted an all campus freshman competition titled Bobcat Brawl. It was a one day event where freshman teams competed against each other in an effort to promote freshman engagement and encourage cross campus connections.
Along with the new events on campus, SigEp will also continue hosting te SigEp lecture series, with the fist lecture this year being focused on civic engagement and voting. SigEp will also be pushing hard to complete the Buchanan Outstanding Chapter Award (Buch Cup). The Buch Cup is given out every two years at Conclave, which will be held this summer in Houston Texas. To win, chapters must compile information 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. It will definitely be a challenge but we are certainly up to the task! Overall, things at SigEp are looking great and we can't wait for the rest of the academic year!
