Leaders on campus and in the community

Our brothers are proud to volunteer with, and often have leadership roles in, other organizations at UT Martin. Each may have its own mission, but all are about improving the communities of those the organization serves.

Founded nationally in 1901

Our fraternity was founded at the University of Richmond quickly became one of the fastest growing fraternities in the nation. Today we have more than 15,000 undergraduate members and chapters on more than 228 campuses.

Different backgrounds, different majors

Our brothers come from all over the country – small towns and big cities – and can be found in every academic building on campus.

Our member development program emphasizes a shared responsibility of the chapter to strive for academic excellence, no matter the area of study.

A Sound Mind supported by a Sound Body

We encourage each other to stay physically active through participation in Intramural Sports as well as training for campus activities during Greek Week and Homecoming. We believe that a commitment to physical health will serve our brothers during their time in college and beyond.

No pledging, no hazing

Every brother has equal rights and responsibilities from the day they join, from the newest member to the chapter president. We extend invitations throughout the year to prospective members.

Hazing of any kind has no place in our fraternity, and is dishonorable to the principles upon which Sigma Phi Epsilon was founded.
