    Welcome to Sigma Alpha Epsilon at The University of South Carolina!


    We know these are very trying and unusual times with the pandemic that is closing our schools and making our members "social distancing". We hope our members and their parents will be safe from this horrible virus.


    Sigma Alpha Epsilon strives to give young men the scholarship, leadership, and social experiences necessary to excel both while they’re on campus and once they graduate. 


    Membership is lifelong, and we continually aim to mold our young men into gentlemen who can be leaders in the ever-changing landscape of the society we live in.


    This is the mission outlined by the national office of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and here at South Carolina Delta, we concur to every word of that statement. Established in 1882, SC Delta was the 35th chapter chartered nationally. With nearly 3,000 young men initiated in our existence, our reach extends far beyond the capital city here in Columbia and the great state of South Carolina.


    SC Delta still remains amongst the most successful and prestigious chapters on campus. Our alumni support is nothing short of outstanding, our numbers are at their highest levels in nearly ten years, and our chapter is full of “true gentleman”. As of the Spring of 2021, we will have over 130 active brothers, and we took an additional three more  in the spring 2021 recruitment peiod.  


    I encourage any potential rushees to visit our "Rush" page and fill out an information form. Further, please get in touch with our rush chairmen, whose contact information is listed on that page as well. They will keep you informed on any rush events they may be hosting throughout the summer and early fall.


    To our alums, thank you for all your support. If you know of a young man interested in SAE at USC, please pass along their information to our rush chairmen as well. To our parents, and especially our mothers who made this year's Mothers of Minerva Weekend another huge success, we are grateful for your continual hard work and contributions.


    We recently won awards for our Delta Drummer newsletter here, and you can stay up to date on our chapter and alumni news with our press releases here.


    We all look forward to making 2021-2022 one of our best. Should you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly.
