Sigma Phi Epsilon
Founder Carter Ashton Jenkins
Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity was founded at Richmond College (now the University of Richmond) in 1901 by 12 men. On a campus of 200 men and five existing fraternities, the Fraternity Founders convinced the college administration of their value. The new fraternity had to differentiate itself just to survive, let alone excel. They set out "to recruit the best men of the college that they might be more closely bound together."
In October, 1902 SigEp filed a charter with the state of Virginia to lay the groundwork for expansion. In part, the charter stated "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 opinions, and perform such deeds as shall conduce to the building of a noble and pure manhood."
SigEp has excelled by promoting, encouraging, educating and molding based on our values of Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love.
The Alumni of Radford University SigEp aim to continue the ideals that our founding fathers once promoted many years ago.
Currently their are several scholarships set up at Radford University that honor and remember brothers that are no longer with us. For many years lots of you have donated to these scholarships to say "Brother we still remember you in our hearts". The families and friends of these fallen brothers appreciate that we continue to keep these good men in our hearts.
Many of our brothers may not have been touched by these men that are no longer with us and therefor have never felt compelled to donate to their scholarships. That is understandable due to the timing of when you went to RU. Because of this challenge we have set a new mission that will honor Carter Ashton Jenkins vision that "This Fraternity will be different".
