Sigma Phi Epsilon is the nation's largest social fraternity. At the University of Illinois, the Illinois Alpha Chapter is the largest fraternity on campus at 174 active members. SigEp at Illinois is a “Balanced Man Chapter”. This means that a member is given full rights the day he joins, so he becomes a full contributor with equal responsibility. There is no "pledging" in the traditional sense of the term. This makes SigEp unique among fraternities on campus. By doing things differently, SigEp at Illinois has been able to lead on campus in many respects.
It's great to be a SigEp.
