Our Chapter

Our 12 -Year Journey

Our journey to bring the Florida Chi Chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon back to UT began in 2012 as we founded the Florida Chi Alumni Association to spearhead efforts to bring our Chapter back to UT.  We began with sponsoring events. 

The most popular events we hosted were our eight "Greek Alumni Nights."  Each event was supported with food and drink, live music, nostalgic slide shows, $18,000 plus 

fundraising raffles, and the popular "Red Wagon Giveaway."

 

In addition, we proudly supported brothers John Kaufman, Paul Dolan, Joel Cirello, and Brad Schwartz's "Royal Krewe of Sparta" Gasparilla float. Their float is featured in Tampa's yearly Gasparilla parade celebration, and annually raises money for the University of Tampa.

These men carried the torch of leadership to guide and direct the ΣAE Florida Chi Undergraduate Chapter throughout our history. Each brother took time out of a busy academic schedule to take on the task of responsible undergraduate leadership and chapter management.
