Fast Facts: SAE is North America’s largest social fraternity with more than 303,000 initiated members. Fraternal symbols include the lion, the phoenix, Minerva, and the Fleur-de-lis. Sigma Alpha Epsilon was the first fraternity to establish a national headquarters (1929), a national Leadership School (1935), a national Men’s Health Issues Committee (1980), and a career-development program entitled the Leading Edge (1990). Currently, the Fraternity offers a comprehensive member-education program called The True Gentleman Initiative. The Fraternity communicates through The Record magazine, a quarterly publication that has been published continuously since 1880. New members receive a copy of The Phoenix pledge manual for educational development.
Our Creed: The True Gentleman.
Our Honor: Phi Alpha.
