Our Brotherhood


We are a community of men and leaders from a wide range of academic disciplines and curricular interests. We are part of the national Sigma Alpha Epsilon organization, which is one of the largest American college fraternities with over 200 chapters and over 350,000 initiated members. 

Sigma Alpha Epsilon Washington Gamma is committed to providing opportunities for its members to grow and learn. Through positive leadership and achievement, we strive to be bold, different, indispensable True Gentlemen.

The True Gentleman

The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will and an acute sense of propriety, and whose self-control is equal to all emergencies; who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty, the obscure man of his obscurity, or any man of his inferiority or deformity; who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another; who does not flatter wealth, cringe before power, or boast of his own possessions or achievements; who speaks with frankness but always with sincerity and sympathy; whose deed follows his word; who thinks of the rights and feelings of others, rather than his own; and who appears well in any company, a man with whom honor is sacred and virtue safe.

 - John Walter Wayland
