Instead of a simple pledging system with no challenges for growth after initiation, SigEp develops its members through the continuous Balanced Man Program, which promotes personal development throughout a brother's four years in college. Through our Sound Mind, Sound Body philosophy we prepare brothers for a smooth transition into the professional world, making lifetime friendships along the way.
SigEp was founded on the cardinal principals of Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love. In our founding, it was said that this fraternity will be different. And after some internal reflection, FSU Epsilon's Alumni Volunteer Corporation (AVC) was determined to realign our organization with its history and roots to ultimately make a return on campus
At FSU, Dance Marathon is the largest run student organization on campus that benefits the Children's Miracle Network, FSU College of Medicine, and UF Health. The Florida Epsilon Chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon contributes to this organization by holding leadership spots on a variety of teams throughout the program. We have members who hold positions on Fundraising, Morale, and Delegates. Over the last four years, we have been a Top 3 fundraising fraternity and are looking to continue that streak of support for years to come.
Showcase of the Arts is the largest Greek Run Philanthropy event at FSU. The main event takes place on March 26th, but Line Dance is different in that there are multiple fundraising events put on beforehand by the fraternities involved with Line Dance. The fraternities involved include Theta Chi, Pi Kappa Alpha, Beta Theta Pi, and Sigma Phi Epsilon. All the benefits and proceeds that are raised from Line Dance go to the new Union, Mara's Voice, College of Social Sciences, and the Unconquered Scholars Program.
Sigma Phi Epsilon plays a huge part in putting on all the fundraisers beforehand, and the actual main event. Andres Salas is the Co-Director of Line Dance and is in charge of overseeing the whole event as well as leading Line Dance's executive board to excelling in their positions. His goal is to have the most successful Line Dance to date. Also, Nick Amaro is the Co-VP of Programming for Line Dance and is in charge of scheduling and putting on all fundraising events as well as putting together the whole schedule for the Line Dance main event. Nick's goal is to put on events that have lots of attendance and are profitable so that the beneficiaries can get the most out of Line Dance's donations. Both Andres and Nick are extremely passionate about this philanthropy event being successful and work on ensuring that every week.
Mental Health Council
The topic of mental health has been institutional within the FL- Epsilon chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon. Being that the organization was founded by a previous chapter president, Brent Terry, the local chapter has found inherent interest in advocating on behalf of the incredible resources that Florida State University offers all across campus. Executive Director: Tony Luna, Assistant Executive Director: John Michael Gregory, and Director of Outreach: Kyle Dimatteo, all served on the councils executive board, along with several other brothers who stand has general board members. These men strive to ensure that the cardinal principle of Brotherly Love never ceases to diminish by solidifying a culture of peer-to-Peter check-ins as often as possible.
