Who We Are
The Florida Alpha chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon was brought to the University of Florida in 1925 as the 63rd chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon nationally, and the 11th Fraternity at the University. Since that time our chapter has grown into one of the most prominent fraternities on campus and in the state of Florida.
SigEp Headquarters, Florida Alpha Alumni and the University of Florida worked hard to ensure that SigEp returned to campus as the positive force in undergraduate's lives in January 2016 after suspension years prior. We formed a colony with 40 outstanding young men who were recruited to restart the organization and build the chapter to become better than ever. We received our charter January 27th, 2018 after SigEp Headquarters reviewed the progress made by the chapter and the impressive impact the group of men made on campus over the two years since returning. Our chapter house, which has been our home since 1955, underwent a complete renovation to improve the living environment for our brothers in 2017.
In November 2022, our chapter is proud to have won the UF Greeks 2022 Interfraternity Council Chapter of the Year award. This is our sixth consecutive year winning the IFC Chapter of the Year award and a testament to the positive force our chapter has sought to become at the University of Florida.
Athletic excellence has been a point of pride for our chapter. SigEp has won many President Cups in fraternity intramural championships and continues to be competitive. Brothers of years past have been a part of club and varsity athletics including soccer, lacrosse, ice hockey, and varsity football.
Excellence in the classroom is another strength of the brotherhood, as SigEp has consistently earned the highest GPA of UF IFC fraternities, having the highest GPA for 12 of the past 15 semesters.
SigEp's prominence on campus has been furthered by brother’s involvement in student organizations. A number of student body presidents hailed from our chapter in the past, while others are currently involved in Student Government, Cicerones, Campus Diplomats, design teams, university research, and a variety of other organizations. Many brothers have been inducted into the UF Hall of Fame.
What We Do
SigEp is redefining fraternity on college campuses across the country. We complement a man’s education by delivering a premier student experience in one of the most formative times of his life. Through SigEp, men strengthen their character, build leadership and interpersonal skills, and learn to develop healthy, lifelong relationships that are essential to a successful and fulfilling life.
SigEp revolutionized the fraternity movement in 1991 by unveiling the Balanced Man Program (BMP), a concept of single-tiered membership and continuous development that begins the day a brother joins. SigEp believes the stereotypical fraternity experience does not fulfill the needs of today’s college male. The BMP offers an experience focused on scholarship, leadership, professional development and life skills. Members learn to live their best lives through unique, rewarding programming tailored to fit their needs and prepare them for the journey of life ahead.
