Most fraternities place higher expectations and time commitments on new members. SigEp doesn’t. Expectations of new members are the same as every member – attend weekly chapter and educational (Balanced Man Program) meetings, participate in intramurals and community service activities, join a campus organization, exceed the fraternity minimum GPA of 2.8, sit on a chapter leadership committee, and participate in social events as desired. All told, the average new member participates in SigEp activities approximately 5 hours per week.
Also, unlike most fraternties, SigEp doesn’t have a “pledge” or “associate member” program. New members are full members right away with all the same rights and privileges as the oldest chapter member.
