History

The History of Our Chapter

The Indiana Gamma chapter of SAE at IU was re-established in 2008 and has been growing ever since. The chapter is up to 90+ members and was recently ranked in the top 10 of fraternities for GPA. The undergraduate brothers participate in many intramural sports as well as fielding a team in the Little 500. They are also very active in the community, participating in many community service projects and one large philanthropy event every spring.

The History of Our Organization

Over one-hundred fifty years ago, at the University of Alabama, eight men of the graduating class of 1856 were the first brothers in Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Studying in the classics, they formed a fraternity governed by age old Greek principles and the highest standards for entrance. Through thick and thin, hardship and good times, the international fraternity of Sigma Alpha Epsilon has stood as a leader in the Greek community as well as many college communities in the United States and Canada.

Our Symbols

The official colors of Sigma Alpha Epsilon are royal purple and old gold and their symbols consist of the Lion, Phoenix, Mierva, and Fleur-de-lis.

Scholarships

The Sigma Alpha Epsilon Foundation helps to further the mission of the Fraternity by encouraging academic excellence, leadership, and community involvement. To support and advance the education of young undergraduate and gradute men, the Foundation has established national scholarship funds with the financial support of generous alumni. The Foundation welcomes donations to create new scholarships or donations designated for existing scholarship funds.
