"Spirit healthy, body healthy" is a concept that was revered by the ancient Greeks. Today, Sigma Phi Epsilon strives to embody this philosophy for every member of the fraternity. We want each one who joins Sigma Phi Epsilon to become a "Balanced Man."
The Sigma Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation translates the support of our 200,000+ Alumni into scholarships, student loans, career guidance, and video and computer learning centers. Sigma Phi Epsilon is the nation's largest fraternity. For the past fifteen years, more men have joined Sigma Phi Epsilon than any other college fraternity.
SigEp was founded at Richmond College, now the University of Richmond, on November 1, 1901, on the cardianal principles of virtue, diligence, and brotherly love. Today, over 225,000 men have joined the fraternity and taken a vow to uphold these values. The New York Rho Chapter at SJU is one among 259 active chapters nation-wide. We pride ourselves on being a strong, life-long brotherhood alongside 13,500+ undergraduates nation-wide. Brothers hold positions in Student Government (including the President of Student Government), New Student Orientation Leaders, Student Life, Honor Societies, Athletics, and a multitude of academic and cultural clubs. The brothers of Sigma Phi Epsilon at SJU boast a unique brand of enthusiasm that is combined with diversity and a dedication to success.
SigEp has won numerous awards such as Organization of the year, the Innovation & Change Award, SigEp Community Service Award, and most recently Greek Week. Individuals from the NY Rho chapter have won Greek God, Outstanding Chapter President, Outstanding Leadership Award, Greek Man of the Year, and the Greek Advisor's Award.
