Sigma Alpha Epsilon was founded on March 9, 1856 in the heart of the deep south at the University of Alabama. One of the oldest fraternities on Georgia Tech’s campus, the Georgia Phi Chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon continues to hold itself to the highest of standards. We believe that being truly successful in college, even after graduation, requires a balance between academics, leadership, athletics, and gentlemanly conduct. Our chapter prides itself on being strong in all four areas. We guide ourselves by two principles: one is The True Gentleman, our creed which states how a gentleman should conduct himself towards others. The other is the principle that once you are an SAE, you are an SAE for life. This is clearly shown by our huge alumni presence, involvement with the Atlanta Area Alumni Association, and ties to famous Georgia Phi alumni such as the golfer Bobby Jones and former mayor of Atlanta Ivan Allen, Jr. Many of our brothers make valuable business contacts among the several thousand alumni active in the area. In addition we continue to maintain one of the strongest social calendars and closest brotherhoods on campus. This is evidenced by yearly trips to destinations such as New Orleans and Disney World, and social events featuring artists such as Corey Smith and the Zac Brown Band among others.
