Welcome to the Sigma Phi Epsilon - North Dakota Alpha chapter at the University of North Dakota. Once upon a time, founder Carter Ashton Jenkins quoted "This fraternity will be different." Explore the pages within our website to find out how we distinguish ourselves from other fraternities. (Pictured above with North Dakota Governor John Hoeven).
The North Dakota-Alpha chapter takes pride in setting standards that are above par. Our pursuit of achieving such excellence has resulted in five Buchanan Cup awards, the most prestigious award a SigEp chapter can receive. Pictured above are a handful of our brothers after the 2009 Greek Awards at the University of North Dakota.
Sigma Phi Epsilon North Dakota-Alpha actively recruit men who have the strong desire to be leaders and further exemplify the qualities of being a balanced man: sound mind, sound body. All male students at the University of North Dakota are invited to our events during recruitment week (January 2011) or join us for other recruitment events throughout the year.
Our brothers are actively engaged in volunteer positions throughout the Grand Forks community. Pictured above are several brothers serving meals at the Northlands Rescue Mission, a Christian-based nonprofit ministry for assisting homeless individuals. Pictured above is Brother Mike Lough serving meals.
Meet the gentleman that make up our diverse chapter. Our brothers reside from hometowns across 10 different states and represent over 20 different majors. Together, we form a strong brotherhood that builds enternal friendships and long lasting memories.

Hoops for Hope
Our 1st Annual "Hoops for Hope" basketball tournament raised over $500 for the Northlands Rescue Mission, a Christian-based nonprofit ministry for assisting homeless individuals in the surrounding area. The April 2009 event was held at the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center on the campus of the University of North Dakota.
