SigEp at LSU


"This Fraternity will be different; it will be based on the love of God and the principle of peace through brotherhood," our founders said.  The charter of Sigma Phi Epsilon states that "its purpose shall be to intensify and perpetuate friendship and promote happiness among its members, to encourage literature and education, and to create such sentiments, mold such opinions, and perform such deeds as shall conduce to the building of a noble and pure manhood." 
-Founding Fathers

Since its founding at Richmond College in 1901, Sigma Phi Epsilon has grown to be known as the largest fraternity in the nation.  With over 260 chapters nationwide, 15,000 undergraduates, and over 300,000 brothers, SigEp boasts the largest membership of any national collegiate fraternity. 

Originally chartered in 1961, the Louisiana Beta Chapter has established itself as a top fraternity on campus and in the nation. In 2007, 2011, and again in 2013, SigEp at LSU was awarded the National Fraternity's highest honor, the Buchanan Cup. 

Our chapter has a rich tradition of being very active on campus. Our brothers have served as Student Body Presidents, Interfraternity Council members, as well as various leadership positions all across the university. 

Since 2008, Louisiana Beta has raised over $62,000 for Boys Hope Girls Hope of Baton Rouge. This money helps give "at-risk" children a safe home and sets them on track to earn a college degree. In 2011 alone, LA Beta raised $20,125 for Boys Hope Girls Hope. For our outstanding philanthropic contributions, the chapter was recently awarded the Lt. Governor's Louisiana Service Award.

Even while consistently maintaining one of the highest GPA's among fraternities at LSU, SigEp maintains a very active social calendar. Every year, SigEp hosts exchanges with all sororities on campus, bus trips across the state, a formal and semi-formal, as well as tailgates for every home football game and post-game parties. Through this, Louisiana Beta has become known as the gentlemen on campus.
