Recruitment is one of our top priorities at Indiana Zeta. Our goal is to find men that show potential for becoming great members in our house. While we do value someone's resume, so to speak, we are more interested in potential. We are looking for people who will show a passion for our house, people who can bring diversity and leadership to our brotherhood.

If you would like to talk to someone about rushing SigEp, please contact our VP of recruitment.

Recruitment Policies


Spring-Deferred Recruitment

Valparaiso has a policy that does not allow freshman to join a fraternity their first semester. We are also not allowed to have formal rush events. However, we are always interested in meeting new people. We are making a conscious effort to be visible on campus and making connections that help us get to know freshman well by the time rush period comes around.

Our Standards

Because we hold education in such high regard, we require a minimum cumulative college GPA of 2.8 in order to receive a bid from our fraternity. After joining, all brothers must maintain a GPA of 3.0 in order to avoid academic probation. We are at Valparaiso to learn first and foremost, Sigma Phi Epsilon should only support this effort. If the fraternity becomes too much of a burden on a brother's studies, some of a brother's responsibilities and privileges are removed so that he can bring his grades back up.
