Sigma Phi Epsilon

Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love. These Cardinal Principles truly define and embody what Sigma Phi Epsilon is all about. SigEp was founded in 1901 at Richmond University under the pretense that “This Fraternity will be different” and came to Rensselaer in 1938.


SigEp strives to create an experience for young men that will transcend life at college and will push for a brighter future. In 2015, SigEp on a national basis voted to abolish the pledging system and replaced it with the Balanced Man Program. This model ameliorates the transition from high school to the real world as it creates an environment where there is constant growth.


Along with their values, The New York Delta Chapter of SigEp pushes towards servicing and giving back to the community. Every Friday during the school year they host “Bacon, Egg and Cheese” to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters, and recently they teamed up with Alpha Gamma Delta and Sole Survivors to host Sexual Assault Awareness Week, a full week of events highlighting the need to speak up and bring awareness to sexual assault. Throughout the years, SigEp has endeavored to transform boys into true Balanced Men that continue to uphold these values and make a difference in the world.
