What is the Balanced Man Program?

Why did I choose SigEp?

I thought fraternities were not for me.

I was an older student, a Navy veteran. Then one day a guy I knew from drinking coffee in the Student Center invited me over to meet the members.

As a result I met a group of guys who cared for each other like my shipmates had. They worked hard to build their chapter and also were active in organizations all over campus. I never regretted my decision to join.  As an alumnus I have met and bonded with men from nearly every state. The friends I made as a SigEp, both in the chapter and later,  I keep in touch with to this day.

Sigma Phi Epsilon made my college experience three dimensional. 

UTK’s size felt overwhelming. SigEp gave me the family feeling I had been longing for. The brotherly love I experienced as a Sig Ep helped me gain confidence in myself. I saw that “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.

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

I didn’t know a single person when I arrived at UT in Knoxville.

The Tennessee Alpha SigEp chapter welcomed me with open arms. I found a group of guys who shared similar interests and values. SigEp provided me with an environment where I could be myself in while 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.
