Northern Kentucky University was founded in 1968. Local fraternities and sororities arose with student desire for community, belonging, and the pursuit of higher ideals. The administration of Northern Kentucky University declared that all fraternities and sororities on its campus must be a part of a national fraternity or sorority. Sigma Nu Alpha, the predecessor to our chapter today, voted to dissolve the local fraternity and colonize a chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon
The Kentucky Eta chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon was founded on October 30, 1982. Due to declining numbers, the chapter eventually went inactive. On November 23, 2003, Headquarters, in partnership with alumni and volunteers of Kentucky Eta, recolonized. A little less than six years later, on April 4, 2009, the Kentucky Eta colony was awarded its charter. Four years after rechartering, we were awarded SigEp Learning Community accreditation by the national organization, showing our commitment to academic excellence and our close relationship with faculty. Since then, our chapter has received numerous awards both nationally and locally. We have taken first place in competitions like AirBands, Greek Sings, and first place in intramural Rock, Paper Scissors.
The Northern Kentucky University chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon is dedicated to building balanced men and pushing our brothers to be the best versions of themselves they can be. To find out more about how to join this brotherhood, fill out the Membership Interest Form
