What is a fraternity?
A fraternity is a group of men who believe and live by the same set of values, and foster a close friendship through those values. These values bind together not only the current chapter members, but members and alumni throughout the country. Fraternity men incorporate these values in all aspects of their lives, never letting go of those beliefs. Sigma Phi Epsilon's values are Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love.
Sigma Phi Epsilon is the largest national fraternity, with over 277,000 brothers across 260 colleges. It also has the highest GPA of any national fraternity. SigEp was founded at the University of Richmond on November 1, 1901 on the Cardinal Principles of Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love. The fraternity's focus is the Balanced Man ideal of Sound Mind and Sound Body.
