Sigma Alpha Epsilon

Sigma Alpha Epsilon was founded on March 9, 1856, at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The mission of Sigma Alpha Epsilon is to promote the highest standards of friendship, scholarship, and service for our members based upon the ideals set forth by our Founders and as specifically enunciated in our creed, The True Gentleman.

Over the years there have been over 296,000 men initiated into Sigma Alpha Epsilon and there are currently 241 chapters nationwide. Locally, our chapter was first known as Phi Tau Alpha, installed on November 21, 1928. On November 6, 1965, Phi Tau Alpha was formally installed as the Michigan Epsilon Chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Recently, Michigan Epsilon acquired a new residence on 1509 University Avenue and moved in October of 2010.
