Sigma Phi Epsilon, established in 1901, is one of the nation’s largest fraternities, with over 15,000 undergraduates on 230 campuses across the United States. Its mission is building balanced men, which is achieved through a four-year member development program that has contributed to a fraternity-wide GPA of over 3.0, a focus on the principles of Sound Mind and Sound Body, and service learning efforts that allow members to develop leadership skills while giving back to the community.
SigEp believes in a fraternity experience focused on continuous development, with no pledging and no hazing. Our award-winning Balanced Man Program will help students develop personal, academic, and professional skills. Founded on the idea that “this fraternity will be different,” we’re seeking men with diverse backgrounds, interests, and aspirations to leave a legacy on UConn’s campus by building an experience unlike any other.
