Sigma Phi Epsilon's history nationally, and at UNL, is long and proud.
The fraternity was founded at Richmond College, now the University of Richmond, on November 1, 1901, on the Cardinal Principles: Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love. Today, the Fraternity has grown to more than 262,000 lifetime members, including 14,000 current undergraduates on 260 campuses in the United States. SigEp is the largest national fraternity with the best overall G.P.A.
The Sigma Phi Epsilon Chapter at the Unversity of Nebraska Lincoln was founded on April 15th, 1911 and in the past century has initiated over 2,000 brothers. Membership has averaged 120 brothers for the past several decades with approximately 75 living in the house.
The approximately 1,300 living alumni of Nebraska Alpha are a very diverse group of men. They are leaders in business, medicine, government, academia, entertainment and the military. They are also dedicated husbands, fathers, sons and active members of communi-ties across the country. However, diverse these men, they all share a special place in their hearts for SigEp.
This group‟s dedication was never more evident than in the last few years when Nebraska Alpha alumni raised $1.5 million to completely renovate the chapter house including new heating, cooling, electrical, plumbing, information technology, fire alarm, sprinkler, and security systems. Consequently, the SigEp house is not only one of the most historic facilities at UNL, but one of the safest, most comfortable and secure.
