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 the 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.
