Sigma Phi Epsilon was founded at Richmond College, now the University of Richmond, on November 1, 1901, on the Cardinal Principles: Virtue, Diligence, and Brotherly Love. Today, the Fraternity has grown to more than 262,000 lifetime members, including 13,500 undergraduates on 260 campuses in the United States. SigEp is the currently the largest fraternity in terms of undergraduate enrollment.
The front door is painted red as a symbolic gesture of “welcome to all.” The tradition of the red door on Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter houses began with the New York Alpha Chapter at Syracuse University in the 1920s. The trend spread, and, as you travel to other college campuses, you will see the “red door” of Sigma Phi Epsilon. Wherever you find it, you will know members, new and old, are all welcome to walk through and share the brotherhood of Sigma Phi Epsilon.
