Chapter History

The KY Delta Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon was founded in 1967 at Western Kentucky University on the cardinal principles of Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love. Through its 50 year history, SigEp KY Delta has grown into an alumni base of over 500 individuals. SigEp nationally has over 14,000 active members, with over 325,000 alumni– making it one of the largest and most widely-spread fraternities in the world.

The original SigEp House, featured left, was located on Normal Street and was a one-floor flat. It was purchased by WKU in 2013 to clear way for the new Honors College and International Center to give us our new home on College Street.

Once relocated, our home on College Street has become a prominent face of fraternal life at WKU, located at the peak of College Street across from Cherry Hall. This house was then remodeled to include a large back deck and front deck, but as of late, has become insufficient for our growing chapter, which includes around 90 members now.

Our chapter is currently fundraising for our new house, with images of its design featured below. We are just short of our goal and intend on reaching it this year. The goal is to demolish our current house in May of 2018 and have our new house ready to move into by December 2018.

Sigma Phi Epsilon KY Delta has a long history of renowned excellence, including the most recent Reed Morgan Award for Fraternal Excellence in 2016. Even though we achieve many awards, our main focus is developing balanced men with sound minds and sound bodies. We are a chapter that is constantly growing and bettering itself, through the cardinal principles of virtue, diligence, and brotherly love.
