FSLsigma phi epsilon
The Virginia Iota Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity was colonized at James Madison University in Fall of 2007 by a group inspired men that sought to create and experience something different from all other fraternities on campus. Founded on the Balanced Man Ideals of Sound Mind, Sound Body, SigEp promotes a strict non-hazing & non-pledging environment. Instead, the chapter’s focus is on continual growth of the mind and body through a leadership development program that exposes members to diverse and rewarding opportunities on their journey to being balanced men.
At JMU, SigEps believe it is important to be a Gentleman, Scholar, Leader, and Athlete. The fraternity has excelled academically with a stellar GPA and been acknowledged for efforts involving service and philanthropy. A highlight is the continued service trips led by SigEps to impoverish communities in West Virginia. Through the Balanced Man Scholarship, the chapter seeks to reward impressive incoming freshmen that demonstrate leadership ability, service in the community, and a commitment to physical fitness by offering $1,000, $500, and $250 rewards. Along with academics and service, the brothers participate in intramural sports and other physical activities as a brotherhood.
Sigma Phi Epsilon, the nation’s largest social fraternity with chapters on over 250 college campuses was founded in 1901 at Richmond College, now the University of Richmond. At James Madison University, we seek to uphold the values and traditions established by our founders over a hundred years ago. We share their vision of a strong and rich brotherhood founded on the cardinal principles of VIRTUE, DILIGENCE, and BROTHERLY LOVE.
