Sigma Phi Epsilon's Mission at FAU

We believe that SIgEp FL Xi provides opportunities by challenging the status quo to improve the personal lives of our brothers going forth, while defying undergraduate stereotypes. By having a completely different Member Development process than other fraternities at FAU, we are able to raise our standards and hold our members accountable to our values. We believe in the American College Fraternity, we believe in the Balanced Man and we believe that social fraternities are important to a great college experience but the social aspects of fraternal life should not exceed the necessity of great academics, service learning, philanthropy and brotherhood for those are essential to the experience. 

Our Principles


For the past three years our fraternity has been implementing a new member development plan and this year we received an award at our National Fraternity's annual event, the Carlson Leadership Academy.  


This year at our chapter's annual fall philanthropy event we raised $18,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Palm Beach and Martin Counties. Pictured are brothers being awarded 4 Years $50,000 from BBBS.

At the end of every semester, our brothers host a semi-formal/formal to reflect on their accomplishments of that semester and continue to strengthen their bonds of brotherly love. This past Spring Formal, our brothers travelled to New Orleans, LA!

How We Operate

as a social college fraternity.

How We Operate

as a social college fraternity.



Sigma Phi Epsilon was founded in 1901 on the campus of Richmond College (now called the University of Richmond) in Richmond, Va. The story of its founding by 12 determined men set the stage for the growth and success of one of the country’s premier fraternal organizations. The history of the Fraternity reflects the times, through great wars and profound cultural shifts. Throughout the decades, the men of Sigma Phi Epsilon have practiced their values and embraced the stated desire of the Founders, “This Fraternity will be different.”

Today, the University of Richmond campus features the Sigma Phi Epsilon Founders Walk, (pictured below) a path in the center of campus that honors the 12 men who started what would become one of the nation’s largest fraternities.


    •    SigEp was founded on November 1, 1901, at Richmond College.

    •    Over the past two decades, SigEp has recruited more men than any other collegiate fraternity.

    •    Currently, over 15,000 undergraduates are SigEps, more than any other national fraternity.

    •    Over 309,000 lifetime members ranks SigEp among the largest national fraternities.

    •    SigEp maintains a full-time professional staff of over 50 people.

    •    The SigEp Journal has been published continuously since 1904, and is distributed to all members for life.

    •    SigEp hosts the largest biennial convention in the fraternity world: the Grand Chapter Conclave.

    •    SigEp was the first national fraternity to establish a housing trust for all chapters and create a National Housing Corporation.

    •    Sigma Phi Epsilon has the greatest number of fraternity houses, with over 200 chapter homes.  Of those, over 115 are owned by local SigEp Alumni and Volunteer Corporations.

    •    The Sigma Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation was the first fraternity foundation to build an endowment greater than $12 million.

    •    The Sigma Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation. Its program funding is planned to develop the scholarship, leadership, citizenship, and personal potential of college undergraduates.
