Arkansas Alpha Building for the Brotherhood Campaign Survey
RequiredRequired Question(s)
 
 
The Sigma Phi Epsilon Arkansas Avenue house has been a factor in the phenomenal growth of Arkansas Alpha and our prominence on campus. We have a highly visible, historic and prominent location. Although it was designed and built as an apartment house, it has served our chapter well. The Alumni Board believes that it is ready for a true fraternity house replacement designed to meet the needs of Sig Ep growth for generations to come.

Arkansas Alpha now includes 200 active brothers and 1,800 alumni. We are one of the largest active chapters in the national Sigma Phi Epsilon organization. The board's strategic plan is to replace the current structure with a commercial grade house that has the space for ongoing events and activities to enrich and expand the Sig Ep experience of brothers and alumni for generations.
