Sigma Phi Epsilon

Colors: Yellow and White
Motto: "Knowledge, Love and Service"

Brothers: The men of Sigma Pi

Sigma Phi Epsilon was founded in 1916 by three women: Lucy Gray Gatling, Anne Pescell, and Bernice Wheeler. Since then, it has had a long standing tradition of literary excellence, service, academics and sociability. Service is also a vital part of Sigma Phi Epsilon. Throughout the year, we participate in projects such as: helping at the local soup kitchen, Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Ronald McDonald House. Sigma Phi Epsilon excels both academically and socially. We have many joints with the male societies, and are actively involved in campus activities such as: the Homecoming Committee, Student Activities Board and Forum. We have also had numerous members inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. The bond developed in Phips is a circle of friendship that will remain a part of you for a lifetime.
