Sigma Phi Epsilon (SigEp), the nation’s largest college Fraternity, is awarding over $225,000 across the nation during the 2014-2015 academic year with its Balanced Man Scholarships. The Balanced Man Scholarship awards students who exhibit academic excellence, demonstrate leadership skills, and commit to their health and well-being. The Ancient Greeks believed in developing a Sound Mind and a Sound Body as the way to live a fulfilling life. SigEp adopted this philosophy with the Balanced Man Ideal and since 1990 has awarded the Balanced Man Scholarship to some of the best students coming to campus.
If you are a freshman male who will be attending the University of Central Arkansas this fall, apply for this scholarship by clicking here.

SigEp knows how to start the school year off right. August 24th, 2012 3LAU, an up and coming artist in the music industry, visited the University of Central Arkansas to put on a concert sponsored by the Arkansas Zeta chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon. The concert benefited the Boys and Girls Club of Faulkner County that was in the midst of a capital campaign for a new facility scheduled to open in January of 2013. The site of the concert was the beautiful Irby BrickYard situated between Irby and Torreyson Library at the University of Central Arkansas.
The event was a huge success thanks to the support of local businesses, the Student Government Association of UCA, and the hard-work of the chapter. On September 12, 2012 members of the executive board presented a check of over $5,000 to the Boys and Girls Club of Faulkner County at the Topping Out Ceremony of their new facility.

The men of SigEp organized and hosted a Halloween Carnival for nearly 40 children from the UCA Child Study Center. Activities included a duck pond, pumpkin painting, pin the nose on the jack-o-lantern, and putt putt golf. The highlight of the event for many of the children was Jay Turpin’s reading of Go Away Big, Green Monster.
