Who We Are
Welcome to the website of the South Carolina Upsilon Chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Sigma Alpha Epsilon prides itself on being an international fraternity with over 230 chapters throughout the United States and Canada with over 250,000 initiated members. Sigma Alpha Epsilon has been at College of Charleston since 1881 and has been in existence nationally since 1856. Developing its members into leaders and creating a close brotherhood are very important to Sigma Alpha Epsilon. This is exemplified, as Sigma Alpha Epsilon was the first fraternity to conduct a leadership school for its undergraduate members. A constructive pledgeship is also believed to be the best way to foster a strong brotherhood by having pledge retreats and keeping them involved with the active chapter to create a close knit circle. Sigma Alpha Epsilon maintains a positive presence on CofC's campus by participating in all intramural sports, Sorority Philanthropies, and IFC sponsored events. The South Carolina Upsilon Chapter carries a heavy Alumni backing, and they continue to stay in touch with their Alumni through events and fundraising.
