Our Chapter

The California Rho chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon was founded at UCSD in November of 1986. We received our national charter as Sigma Phi Epsilon on February 6, 1988, where it continues to be a prominent force on campus. Since its founding, our chapter has won numerous awards, including the UCSD Interfraternity Council Chapter of the Year Award four times and the prestigious Buchanan Cup Award for chapter excellence through the national Fraternity twice.The new millennium will prove to be pivotal as the fraternity system continues to be examined at every level by academic administrators, professors, parents, and the media. Sigma Phi Epsilon will promote leadership, academic excellence, and brotherhood through programs like the resident scholar program and the Balanced Man Scholarship. Sigma Phi Epsilon will continue to seek to create partnerships with university administrations as well.

The Balanced Man Program is hailed as the model for membership development in the Greek community, and Sigma Phi Epsilon’s strategic plan is envied by many for its foresight in the ideals of Sound Mind, Sound Body. Through self-evaluation and unbending commitment by the National Board of Directors to hold the chapters accountable to the highest standards.

Sigma Phi Epsilon will continue to be the national’s leading fraternity. Our mission statement is Building Balanced Leaders for the World’s Communities.

Sigma Phi Epsilon is proud of its heritage as a pioneer with its members, its chapters, and the Greek community. This pride and commitment will continue to blaze the way through the Fraternity’s second century.
