Founded locally as Kappa Phi Sigma in 1955 and in 1971 merged with a national fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon has grown into the largest fraternity at Lawrence Tech, as well as the largest fraternity in the nation, with more than 240 chapters and 290,000 lifetime members. SigEp continues to lead the way on campus. The chapter stands out nationally by winning five Buchanan Cups for excellence in all areas of operations, five Excelsior Cups, and seven Scholarship Excellence Awards.
Members have held leadership positions in Student Government, the Interfraternal Council, Students Planning Activites Monthly, and many other organizations. SigEps take pride in academic performance and is the only fraternity to post over a 3.0 GPA on campus. The fraternity provides the “Balanced Man Scholarship” totaling $1,500 for incoming male freshmen. It looks for balanced individuals who seek to fulfill their potential in a young, aggressive, demanding organization. Leadership, friendship, scholarship, and achievement are both offered and expected. There is more to Lawrence Tech than four years in a classroom. Sigma Phi Epsilon continues to be a “lifetime experience.”
