Sigma Phi Epsilon, or Sig Ep for short, was founded in 1901 on the campus of Richmond College in Richmond Virginia by six close friends who strove to meet the high principles of virtue, diligence, and brotherly love. Sig Ep is now the largest fraternity with 270 chapters in the United States. Some of our alumni include Orel Hershiser of the Cleveland Indians, John Goodman of the television show Roseanne, Dave Thomas of Wendy's, with our most famous being Theodor S. "Dr. Seuss" Giesel.
Sigma Phi Epsilon was restarted on TTU campus in the Fall of 1996. Since that time the chapter has been working diligently in the Balanced Man Project. As a national organization, Sigma Phi Epsilon began the Balanced Man Project in 1995 as a means to get rid of the unsavory by-products of a pledging system. The Balanced Man project is designed to help members grow into better men by teaching them how to be better leaders, encouraging social skills, and building up a sense of responsibility toward the organization.
Since Sigma Phi Epsilon does not have a pledge program, they are able to have year round recruitment which allows people to join the fraternity at anytime during the year.
