Rush Spring '08!

Upcoming Events





Considering rushing SAE? The rush page of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity at SU explains some of the nuances of rushing, pledging and fraternity life in general. To learn even more about rushing SAE it is best to attend one of our rush meetings.

All brothers are eager to tell of their great experiences as active members of our chapter but perhaps the best person to ask is our Rush Chair--Randy Utz. Our Rush Chair is the undergraduate brother whose job it is to make your life easier when trying to make one of the most decisive decisions of your college career.

Before we were brothers of SAE most of us were totally clueless as to the the different aspects of fraternity life like rushing, pledging and even becoming an active member. Because of this, we hope shed light on the many aspects of our fraternity, what it means to us, and hopefully what it will soon mean to you.
