The Nebraska Gamma RLC chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon was founded at UNK on Oct. 1, 1965, and has since initiated more than 1,500 members. Before becoming Sigma Phi Epsilon, the fraternity was known as Caledonia.
The UNK SigEp chapter is one of 15 only nationwide that has won five or more Buchanan Cups, the fraternity’s most prestigious award. It currently has more than 85 active members at UNK.
UNK’s SigEp chapter became an accredited Residential Learning Community (RLC) in 2013. The RLC concept promotes personal growth, on-campus activities and life skills needed to succeed after graduation. It also complements academic studies and increases collaboration between undergraduates and university faculty to enhance the academic experience.
