The KY Delta Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon was founded in 1967 at Western Kentucky University. Through its 52 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 this privilege the past year, and 3 years prior. We strive to achieve many awards, but our main mission is to develop balanced men with sound bodies and 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 placed second on campus maintaining above a 3.30 GPA for both the Fall and Spring Semesters.
We hold numerous leadership positions amongst student life on campus. We've had past Student Government Association and Inter-Fraternal Council presidents, Sprit Masters, Top Guides, Honors Toppers, football players, Editors and chief of the Herald, Speakers of the House, and many more.
Our chapter of 96 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 Movember United States: the leading global organization committed to changing the face of mens health. Our prior dedication was to Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Southern Kentucky that unfortunately shut down this past year.
In the last academic year, our balanced men donated over $11,000 to these incredible organizations. We also provided a total of 4,117 service hours; an average of 45.24 hours per member.
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 is in the current process of building a new home at the same location! Check out our Instagram @wkusigep to see the house plans and sketch.
