The Kentucky Delta Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon was founded in 1967 at Western Kentucky University. Through its 53 year history, SigEp KY Delta has grown into an alumni base of over 700 men. The chapter, nationally, has over 14,000 active members, with over 325,000 alumni– making it one of the largest and most widely-spread fraternities in the world.
Sigma Phi Epsilon KY Delta has a long history of renowned excellence including winning the Reed Morgan Award for Fraternal Excellence. The chapter was awarded most recently in 2016 & 2019. We strive to accumulate many awards, but our main mission is to develop balanced men with sound bodies & sound minds. We are a chapter that is dedicated to continual growth of our cardinal principles: Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love.
Our chapter prides itself in our involvement on campus academically and physically. We achieved the highest grades on campus among 19 fraternities in Spring 2020!
We hold numerous leadership positions amongst student life on campus. We have had past Student Government Association and Inter-Fraternal Council presidents, Sprit Masters, Top Guides, HonorsToppers, football players, Editors and chief of the Herald, Speakers of the House, and many more.
Our chapter of 86 men holds placement in over 126 clubs on campus. Our chapter has been involved in 12 intramural sports on campus and placed top three in 50% of those divisions.
The chapter is dedicated to supporting the Boys & Girls Club of Bowling Green, allowing brothers to volunteer to mentor boys & girls within the Bowling Green community.
The upcoming Kentucky Delta philanthropy week, known as Sweets Week, will be hosted in Spring 2021, dates TBA!
The original SigEp House was located on Normal Street. The one-floor flat was purchased by WKU in 2013 to clear way for the new Honors College and International Center.
Once relocated, our new home on College Street became a prominent face of fraternal life at WKU. The location overlooks the city of Bowling Green at the peak of College Street across from Cherry Hall. The house underwent remodeling to include a large back and front deck, but became an insufficient space for our growing chapter.
Our chapter recently opened a state of the art fraternity house in August 2020. Check out our Instagram @wkusigep to view the fraternity house virtual tour!
