SigEp was founded at Richmond College, now the University of Richmond, on November 1, 1901 on the cardinal principles of Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love. Today, over 244,000 men have joined the fraternity and taken a vow to uphold these values. With over 15,000 current undergraduates at more than 260 colleges across the nation, Sigma Phi Epsilon is the nation's largest fraternity.
SigEp believes strongly in "Universal Respect for Self and Others" – therefore, we have eliminated antiquated pledging and replaced it with the Balanced Man Program,
which better enables us to achieve our mission: "Building Balanced Leaders for the World's Communities."
New members are respected as equal brothers from Day 1, with voting rights and similar responsibilities to older members. All members participate in a set of challenges for four years that promote living your best life through social programming, cultural and community activities, IM sports, professional and leadership development, mentoring, and academic enrichment.

Through our staged mentorship program, you gain the benefits of mentorship from your Big Brother as well as from other chapter members and alumni. Our diverse brotherhood currently represents more than 11 of MIT's majors, and more than 25 student groups and activities. Click here to learn more about the brothers of SigEp Mass Delta.
A balanced life at MIT calls for a bit of fun; some of our previous social events have included date nights, wine and cheese parties, salsa dance parties, and faculty dinners. For information see our upcoming events pages.
Originally founded in 1952, our chapter is rooted in traditions that bring our diverse brotherhood together. Many of our highly successful alumni serve as mentors to members of the chapter, providing career guidance. \n\nOur brothers also enjoy traveling the nation visiting other chapters via the Red Door Policy. All brothers make a lifetime commitment to uphold our three Cardinal Principles: Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love.
