About Arizona Alpha Chapter

The Arizona Alpha Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity (SigEp) was founded on February 16th, 1952. After repeated success and growth the chapter decided – along with a group of several other fraternities – to construct a Fraternity row on the north side of campus near the football and baseball stadiums. The fraternity house at 615 E. Alpha Drive was constructed in 1961 and still stands today.

The chapter has experienced many high points in its now 59-year history at ASU. Arizona Alpha won the highest national SigEp award, the Buchanan Cup in 1977 and 1983 for chapter excellence. As well, the chapter peaked in the late 1980’s as the largest SigEp chapter in the U.S. with over 200 members.

However, resulting from changes in the overall Greek system and behavior of the chapter, Arizona Alpha lost its Charter and university recognition in 2001. After only a few years of absence on campus Arizona Alpha returned to ASU as a colony in 2004 and re-Chartered in 2008.

The Chapter now boasts an impressive resume identifying it as one of the top fraternities on campus. The chapter currently  holds a 3.2 GPA between its 85 active members, constantly are competing for championships in intramurals, and have won numerous awards from the local to national level. These include, but are not limited to Greek Week winners, Intramural Champions, ASU Senior of the Year, Mr. ASU, Academic Excellence, Chapter Excellence, Distinguished Alumni, etc.

The Arizona Alpha Chapter has a long history and tradition of Fraternity excellence at ASU and nationally. And all signs seem to show that it will keep that high level of dedication and dominance as a chapter of Athletes, Scholars, and Gentlemen.
