Welcome to Sigma Phi Epsilon Kentucky Beta Chapter
national purple.jpg

SigEp was founded on November 1, 1901 on the cardinal principles of Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love. Today, over 255,000 men have joined the fraternity and taken a vow to uphold these values. With over 15,000 current undergraduates at more than 257 colleges across the nation, Sigma Phi Epsilon is the nation's largest fraternity.

Sigma Phi Epsilon is supported by the Sigma Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation. The Foundation was founded to help develop the scholarship, leadership, citizenship, and personal potential of SigEp undergraduates. The Sigma Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation provided over $1 million to Sigma Phi Epsilon in program support and scholarships in 2001. Ky Beta sees the fruits of this foundation when they send their men to the annual Carlson Leadership Academies, the Ruck Leadership Institute, or when they apply for and win scholarships such as the $1000 Hicks Scholarship, and the Balanced Man Quest to Greece.

Additionally, Sigma Phi Epsilon is the first fraternity to abolish the pledging model for becoming brothers in the fraternity. The traditional model has been replaced by the innovative Balanced Man program. In a Balanced Man Chapter, there is no pledging and no hazing.

A SigEp Man follows three cardinal principles:

  •  Virtue - Standing aggressively for honesty in all walks of life. Speaking, playing, and living cleanly.
  • Diligence - Persevering determination to perform a task
  • Brotherly Love - True friendships. Aiding a brother in times of need, whatever the circumstances.

SigEp also has the strong support of the more than 280,000 brothers mentioned above. At the KY Beta chapter we're currently in the process of an alumni fundraising program called the 100 Gives 100. For more info click on the alumni support tab located under the alumni section.

Chaplain's Quote of the Week

While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior.
