All members of our fraternity are expected to maintain above average levels of achievement in all realms of collegiate life. These standards are the basis of the fraternity's ability to achieve excellence, therefore they are incredibly important to daily life in the house.
a STUDENT FIRST, MEMBER SECOND
In order to be a member of the Kansas Alpha Chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, a member must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.7 each semester. ΣΑΕ consistently ranks above the Greek and KU grade point average, ranking at a 3.28 this past year. Tutors are provided and paid for by the house.
Making the Community better
All members are required to meet a minimum of 12 hours of community service each semester; some are required more based on their status of membership or their previous semester GPA. It is ultimately clear that all members easily exceed this with a house average of 24.1 hours per member each semester, an all-time KU IFC Record.
eNGAGING THE Entire cAMPUS
We are more than just scholarship and service; in order to have a well-rounded collegiate experience it is expected that each member is a part of at least one other campus organization while a member of ΣΑΕ. Most members are part of more than one campus organization; you will find that many of our members hold leadership positions in their respective organizations.
bEHAVING as an IntellIgent ADULT
