Sigma Phi Epsilon, Indiana Alpha
"Building Balanced Leaders for the World's Communities"
The Indiana Alpha Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon was founded at Purdue University in 1905. For over 100 years, SigEp has been producing leaders on campus and preparing them for the professional world.
Sigma Phi Epsilon is committed to developing its brothers throughout their careers at Purdue as GENTLEMEN, SCHOLARS, and ATHLETES. We are able to achieve this through the Balanced Man Program. This is a program that was created in 1989 by the national fraternity and is being implemented nationwide.
The cornerstones of the Balanced Man Program centers on Mentoring, Community Involvement, Experiential Learning, and Brotherhood, and are not only the foundation for becoming a Balanced Man, but also a mature professional.
In 1901 when the first SigEp chapter was founded, 12 men decided that the status quo was not good enough. As Founder Carter Jenkins put it, "This fraternity will be different." Their changes resulted in the birth of Sigma Phi Epsilon, and the Balanced Man Program is the fruition of that dream.
