What is the Balanced Man Program?

Why did I choose SigEp?

Becoming a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon made my college experience three dimensional.

While I enjoyed the freedom that comes with being on one’s own at college, UTK’s size felt overwhelming. SigEp gave me the family feeling I had been longing for.  I now had connections and common purpose with diverse brothers.

Leadership skills gained as a chapter officer were as important, if not more, than graduating Magna Cum Laude in four years. The brotherly love I experienced as a Sig Ep helped me gain confidence in myself. I formed the belief that in life, “I would get out of something what I put into it” as a member.  

I learned values of virtue, diligence and brotherly love working with chapter members during Homecoming, “Carnicus”, chapter philanthropy, and sports.

Most importantly, I made cherished, lifelong friends–brothers who have always been there for me, having my back.

“Coming from out-of-state, I didn’t know a single person when I arrived at UT in Knoxville. The Tennessee Alpha SigEp chapter welcomed me with open arms and allowed me to find a group of guys who shared similar interests and values.

SigEp provided me with an environment where I could be myself in while also challenging me to grow and mature.

As a result, my college experience was better than anything I could have ever imagined. The bonds that I formed with my fellow brothers have not wavered since graduation. They are friendships that will last a lifetime.”
