Interested in becoming a Brother...?
There are many advantages to joining SigEp at Randolph-Macon:
The academic portion of your university career is a significant
determinant in your future success. The primary purpose of the
fraternity system is to encourage and develop high scholastic
achievement among its members. Nationally, just over 50% of
students end up graduating. However, fraternity members have
over a 70% graduation rate. SigEp is no different; we all strive
to reach our own academic goals, and with the help of the fraternity
and the brothers, it is much easier to accomplish. What makes
SigEp different from all others on our campus is our grade policy
and scholarship program. SigEp has ranked in the top two in
GPA of all fraternities on campus since 2004 and boasts a GPA
over the all-campus average (2.855). We also have started a
program where college professor Dr. Ed Showalter (Business/Economics)
comes into our house and provides office hours. He helps us
with time management skills and also offers help with subject matter.
Fraternities participate in many competitive sports through
intramural events. Coordinated with the idea that a Sound Body
is necessary to be a Balanced Man, SigEp boasts Athletes of
various sports and strives for the best.. SigEp placed second
overall in Greek Week in the Spring of 2005. Joining SigEp allows
for the opportunity to make a difference in athletics, while meeting new people
and enjoying the beautiful campus of R-MC.
Another major part of college and the Greek System is social
life. SigEp offers its members a filled social calendar, participating
in social events with sororities, sorority/fraternity philanthropy
contests and athletic events, and building a strong brotherhood
through various activities at or around Randolph-Macon's campus.
Included in the social calendar are annual house parties, the
homecoming CRABFEAST, Gallop for PKD philanthropy horse race
at the Foxfield Races in Charlottesville, and the Annual Alumni
While in a fraternity, many take on leadership positions, whether
it be an officer, committee head, or just a participant. You
will learn how to run meetings, speak in public, motivate others,
and other skills that help mold people into leaders. Since it
takes more than a degree to get a job, these leadership skills
can help you get a job.
Brotherhood is what
truly sets fraternities apart from other organizations. As a
brother, the friendships which are formed are unlike those found
in any other organization. Through activities such as brotherhood
gatherings, formals, and athletics, you will make life long
friends with men who share the same ideals as yourself. The
brothers of SigEp hold the cardinal principle of Brotherly Love
sacred. Our brothers are there for each other in times of trouble
and celebrate together in times of joy. We host weekly brotherhood
dinners, as well as trips to Richmond Braves games, Home sporting
events games, and cookouts with different sororities.
We are committed to helping and improving the
community in which we live. Whether it be hosting our own philanthropic
events, participating in others, or helping build a home for
a needy family, SigEp strives to help Ashland and the surrounding
community. We currently have two members on the IFC Community
Relations Board, where they are helping with such events as
Spring Clean, Jamboree, and Adopt-a-Block. SigEp's national
philanthropy is YouthAids, and we are currently planning an
afternoon charity event that will raise money through a giant
root beer pong tournament on the patio of Blackwell Auditorium.
