Sigma Alpha Epsilon prides itself on its continued work in philanthropy and community service. We host two main philanthropies, one in the fall semester and one in the spring semester. In the fall we will be hosting our second annual Big Digs Sorority Volleyball Tournament benefiting Children’s Miracle Network. In spring we co-host Anchor Splash with Delta Gamma Sorority. Anchor Splash is the second largest philanthropy at Purdue, it brings the community together for a friendly swim meet style competition, with the fundraising from the event benefiting the Service for Sight foundation in its efforts to improve the lives of the visually impaired.

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
