The mission statement of the Sigma Phi Epsilon national fraternity is “Building balanced leaders for the world’s communities.” Baker University’s chapter is striving to do just that.
Sig Ep has a strong tradition of academic excellence. Kansas Alpha Residential Learning Center offers weekly study hours, a large library study area and an academic lecture series to help members succeed in the classroom. Outside of the classroom, the men of Sig Ep are dedicated to the ideal of a sound body, and several are varsity athletes in numerous sports, including baseball, golf, football, wrestling, cross country, tennis and track. Sig Ep has produced numerous championship intramural teams in Baker’s football, volleyball, basketball and softball leagues.
Apart from helping its own members to grow and succeed, Sig Ep is dedicated to helping the community at large. Every year, Kansas Alpha sponsors the Spiking Out volleyball tournament to raise money to help end domestic abuse and to help prevent youth AIDS in Africa. Sig Ep also organizes and participates in a number of other community service events throughout the year. In the past, members have helped clean local highways, rang the Christmas bell for the local Salvation Army, sponsored a team in the Relay for Life event and walked in a local Youth AIDS event.
