To be a premier fraternity on Florida State's campus that provides a path for success and self-development in every aspect of a brother's life at college and beyond while encouraging members to remain true to themselves while living out the values of Sigma Pi.
The chapter, first colonized in 1988 with a group meeting in room 144 of Osceola Hall (a residence hall near the campus of Florida State), became chartered on November 19th, 1988, with 75 founding fathers.
The first house that the chapter occupied was at 409 W. College Avenue. A year later, the chapter settled into the house at 447 W. College Avenue, where it established itself as one of the up-and-coming new fraternities and dominated intramural wrestling for six years. The chapter also established the popular and successful fundraiser, Tiger Toss, a cheerleading competition with FSU sororities. Brothers came to hold numerous leadership positions in the greek and campus communities. The chapter continued to grow and thrive until March 2001, when its charter was revoked by Sigma Pi's national office. After a period of time the chapter was allowed to recolonize in the spring of 2007.
From that point the recolonized Eta-Epsilon Chapter set forth to reestablish itself as a cornerstone of the greek and Seminole community. Making great strides to put itself back at the top of the fraternal hierarchy, on March 1st, 2008 the Eta Epsilon chapter was rechartered with 55 re-founding fathers. In 2012 we moved to 408 West College Avenue.
In August 2018 we moved to Heritage Grove to live in the fourth largest fraternity house in the country where 61 brothers currently live in-house.
Where is the chapter now?
The chapter has made large advances since rechartering. It maintains good relations with other fraternities and sororities in all four Greek councils through participation in various philanthropic and social events. The chapter has some of the most involved members on-campus including: several leaders in Student Government, Seminole Student Boosters, Student Foundation, Dance Marathon, IFC Executive Board and several other organizations on this campus. Scholarship is also a high priority for the chapter which maintains an exceptionally high average GPA. Our social calendar is also impressive with various date functions, sorority socials, and other events such as our legendary tailgates, house parties, and concerts.
Motto of Sigma Pi
“Progress, man’s distinctive mark alone, Not God’s, and not the beasts’; God is, they are. Man partly is and wholly hopes to be.”Robert BrowningA Death in the Desert
To establish a brotherhood.
To establish and maintain an aristocracy of learning.
To raise the standards of morality and develop character.
To diffuse culture and encourage chivalry.
To promote the spirit of civic righteousness and quicken the national conscience.
What is Sigma Pi?
Sigma Pi is an international fraternity with over 100,000 members worldwide. Sigma Pi stands at the summit of a long and distinguished history. We have survived three major wars and weathered one of the worst economic depressions, yet throughout the years we have continued to grow and strengthen. Although we are young compared to other fraternities, Sigma Pi is among the strongest and most respected organizations in the Greek-letter world.
Sigma Pi is a lifelong experience marked by friendship, leadership, citizenship, and distinction. As a college fraternity, we strive to bring out the best in each of our members so that they may reach their full potential. Sigma Pi teaches the fundamentals for leadership ability, business, sociology, responsibility, and general administrative skills. Members who are involved in the chapter and readily accept responsibilities are getting the utmost from their college experience.
