The "Fittest " Colleges - where are the Sig Eps?

A few months ago we posted an article about Sig Eps on the "Best" campuses, as noted by US News & World Report. We actually came out pretty well there. We are on nearly all of the campuses and the Sig Ep chapters are generally near the top of the Greek systems.

Well, now for the other side. "Fitness Magazine" has published its list of the "fittest" colleges. We didn't do so well there. Out of the top 25 schools, Sig Ep is only on 6 campuses:

An interesting contrast. Of course some of the schools are probably too small to support a chapter and others - Like Cal Tech, the only "double dipper" - don't have Fraternities, but it is quite a different look nonetheless.
