SigEp at Eastern Washington University (WA Gamma) was charted in 1991. Within the few decades as being a recognized national fraternity on EWU's campus we have ran into down falls but also overcoming them as an organization.
SigEp was founded on the cardinal principals of Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love. In our founding, it was said that this fraternity will be different. And after some internal reflection, WA Gamma's Alumni Volunteer Corporation (AVC) was determined to realign our organization with its history and roots to ultimately make a return on campus.
Since our return in late 2014, SigEp EWU has grown as a chapter exponentially, becoming one of the biggest fraternities on campus, growing from a low number of members. Our goal is to keep the tradition of 365 recruitment and keep growing on campus, moving forward as an organization and shaped young men to the leadership roles they are capable of.
Our long-standing tradition of maintaining a substance-free facility has been credited with reducing many negative social pressures associated with young men while simultaneously promoting stronger bonds within our membership. Brothers living in the facility take pride in the environment performing weekly chores and house duties.
Visitors may find it obscure that nearly 30 college-aged men live together in a well maintained chapter facility on Eastern Washington's campus. But for brothers who cite 419 5th Street as their home away from home, this Residential Learning Community plays an integral role in the SigEp and undergraduate college experience.
Eastern Washington's chapter gives equal opportunity to young men who want to make a change and have one specific goal all are reaching for- becoming the best version of a Balanced Man, even with a diverse group of talents and interests.
