"Our hope is that with our charter and increased presence on campus, SigEp will begin to break those stigmas and stereotypes typically associated with fraternities and greek life," said President Kristian Hoysradt, a senior in the School of Public Affairs. "With this momentum, our chapter hopes to advance its commitment to bettering the greek and AU community, and will continue to focus on the development of balanced men and balanced leaders at AU."Thanks to Undergraduate NBD member Steve Dorsey for pointing out the article.
"I have benefited greatly from the Balanced Man Program," said Robbie Schwartz, a senior in SPA and the chapter's vice president of communications. "It not only teaches and instills the founding values of SigEp, but also the skills necessary for the real world, including business and social skills."
SigEp has the highest GPA among fraternities at AU with a 3.46 average, according to the chapter's Web site.
The university invited SigEp and Pi Kappa Phi in the spring of 2005 to replace two other fraternities that were dismissed from campus. The original SigEp class had 12 brothers, and in a little more than three years, it has grown to a current size of 47 undergraduate members. This fall, the fraternity recruited 11 new brothers - the largest group of new members of any fraternity on campus, Hoysradt said.
